Enjoy Creativity – Technique Focus

If you’re tired of using the same card making techniques week after week, here is a new technique for you!

Break out your Matte Finish Embossing Paste but leave your Artistic Mix Decorative Masks on the shelf—this week you’re going to make your own mask using a die and some paper!

First, die cut a piece of Silver Foil Specialty paper with the peek-through tree die from the Aspen Tree Dies.

Place the die-cut paper on top of a piece of Basic White cardstock and use some tape to hold it in place.

Next, mix together some paste with two drops of the Balmy Blue Ink Refill.

Spread a thin layer of the blue paste across the bottom half of the die-cut mask with a Palette Knife.

Clean off the knife and then add white paste to the top half of the mask in a thick layer that overlaps the bottom half just a little.

Remove the mask and allow the paste to dry, then adhere the cardstock to a Soft Succulent card base.

Stamp, colour, and die cut the bird and tree branch pieces, then adhere them to the card along with a few die-cut bunches of leaves and a sweet sentiment.

Finish the card with a bow of Linen Thread adhered behind the greeting label with a mini glue dot.

And there you have it, use your dies to create your masks!
