Colorful Card using Masking Technique

Today we are celebrating my dear friend Amy McGrew’s milestone of achieving her 1,000th YouTube subscriber with a video collab. Because Amy has a bright and cheerful personality and loves bright colors the 9 papercrafters who are participating are all creating a project with a bright and cheerful theme. 

My project highlights the masking technique to create this cheerful floral card. I walk you through the process step by step to create this card and then show a couple other variations. Be sure to check out all of the other YouTuber’s videos as well. You will find a link to each of their channels in the description section at the bottom of my video.

Watch the video below to see the full process.

Here is a side view of the card so you can see the dimension a little better. You can even turn this type of card into a shaker card by adding some acetate and some confetti or sequins inside!

Here is a card I made using the die cut letters.

Of course I had to use the same technique to make a card for Amy.
