Clean & Simple 3 - Masking

I've been taking the Clean & Simple 3 card class over at Online Card Classes. As I finish up my cards I'll try to share them here. The 11 days of class are already over, but what can I say, I'm a slow crafter :)

This card was made using a a masking technique to create a one layer card that has a layered look. I'm also entering into Casology's Week 87 Challenge, "Blush".

I die cut the frame shape with my Cricut Expression, and then I used the cut out it created and misted with Mr. Huey's. After the mist dried I stamped over the masked area with a background stamp and grey ink. Then finished it off by stamping the sentiment in grey in the middle and adding some heart pearls. The card isn't truly one layer because I did all this work on a panel and then just added it to a card stock base, but I'm ok with that.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Looks great. This sounds like a fun class. I personally like the look of a panel on a card.

  2. Love this frame and how you created it! Perfect for this week's challenge at CASology!
