Learn A Fun Cardmaking Technique with Masking

I love the masking cardmaking technique. There are so many ways to use masking with your cardmaking adventures. But the idea I am sharing today isn’t one I had seen before. I was inspired by a card I saw on Instagram by Yana Smakula.


This technique is so gorgeous. I absolutely love it and honestly think it will be a new go to for me when creating cards with backgrounds.

So I couldn’t stop after I made the first one. I ended up making two more cards, I shared one here, the other one will be a surprise later down the road.

For the elephant card blending I used Sweet Sorbet, Polished Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink. I have a friend whose daughter is having her first baby, which will be my friend Rosa’s first grandchild. The excitement is over the top for this baby.

But I do find it odd that I have a friend about to be a grandma. I’m just sayin’ I don’t think I’m old enough for that business yet. HAHA.
