Magic in Card Making: Masking Tips


Make sure to watch the video to see how I was able to stamp the little guy on the left BEHIND the one on the right.

Card Recipe:

  • Melon Mambo:  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White:  5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Basic Black:  5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″

All cards actually use this exact same recipe.  Just change the color of the card base.


Don’t they look like a trio singing a song?


Greeting for this one is from the WELL SAID stamp set and the die cut “wishes” is from the WELL WRITTEN dies.

I really think this guy looks quite down in the dumps or not feeling well!


He could be the choir director!  I was thinking this would make a fun graduation card.  The “Congratulations” are from the HERE’S A CARD stamp set.
