Maybe you were a little intimidated when you first saw the Decorative Masks, but they are such a great way to spice up your cardstock. Just add a little ink or some embossing paste* to give your card a bit of texture—as I did with the card you see today.
I cut a piece of Natural Cardstock and taped the Decorative Mask (hearts) on top. Then I took some embossing paste and gently applied it to the mask. (Use a palette knife or a piece of firm cardboard.) It doesn’t have to look perfectly covered—just do it how you like it. Then let it dry for an hour.
I used some leftover pieces from our lovely Moonlight Designer Series Paper and cut out banners using the Banners Framelits Dies. I punched out the tag using the Note Tag Punch and stamped a sentiment using the And Many More Stamp Set.
I punched the big heart using the Sweetheart Punch and added a heart paperclip from the Basic Hodgepodge Clips. To finish the card, I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels and Frosted Sequins—for some bling!
I always love to decorate the inside of a card. I added some of the same elements as I used on the front of the card, then made a scalloped border using the Scalloped Edge Punch.
So give it a try! I’m sure you’ll love working with the Decorative Masks!
