Bloomin Lovely Floral Frame made using the Masking Technique

For today's project I decided to try out the Masking Technique to achieve the pretty floral frame centrepiece on this card:-

The card base is 5 3/8 inches square and so fits perfectly in a 5.5" square envelope.

I used one of my Layering Square Framelits Dies to the create the template.

Then, it was simply a case of building up a pretty floral frame using three little stamps from the Bloomin Love Photopolymer stamp set.

I wanted to give the layered focal point of the card some dimension, so decided to mount it on a square piece of Fab Foam which I purchased from Hobbycraft.  This really makes a good sturdy card.  I think the look is nice, clean and simple.

I used a lovely palette of colours - Pool Party, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.   They compliment each other beautifully.

My new step by step video shows you how to create a card using this technique:-

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Bye for now.

    1. Thanks Angela - I bought the anti-static tool as it's great for shaker cards, as demonstrated by K Werner. I bought mine from Amazon. You could also use the Embossing Buddy for this card though.

  5. Gorgeous card Linda and a technique for me to try. Not heard about the anti-static tool but notice I can use an Embossing Buddy to make this sort of card.
