Masking and Embossing powders

Posted by on March 24, 2014 in Annabelle Stamps, Embossing, Friendship cards, Online card class, Stamping | 6 comments

I have a few more cards I want to post before the end of the online card class – Clean and Simple Card making 3.


I simply loved Cristina Kowalczyk’s card using masking and embossing powders. Very clever indeed. Instead of having a blank space between the different colours of embossing powders, I used a silver glittery embossing powder.

This card was fiddly (and this was the second attempt), so not sure I would do it again in a hurry, but it certainly is a one layer card (except for the red heart). Removing all the masking tape to reveal the final card was fun though.
