This card was inspired by my good friend Paula. Here is her beautiful card that inspired me, Keeping It Simple. I thought that the not scary Masking Technique would be great to show for my October Stamp Club meeting. Get it? Masking…ghosting…the October club theme? Okay…I know it’s a ghastly stretch but it really was a great club meeting! :)
We started with a Very Vanilla card base and masked off everything but the image panel. Sponged on some Sahara Sand to define our panel. Lifted the mask on one side and stamped the large oak leaf from French Foliage. Masked the leaf and replaced the side mask and continued stamping the image panel until the desired look was achieved. We removed all the masking and stamped our sentiment. I chose the ‘Happy Birthday’ from Bring On The Cake simply because I needed a birthday card but any sentiment would work. It’s a fast and easy one layer card.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ve been inspired to give a masked panel a try. Stop by Paula’s blog, Stampinantics, for some more inspiration and beautiful projects :) Leave her some love while you’re there.
