SIMPLE MASKING TECHNIQUE creates EASY CHRISTMAS CARDS



Hello, crafty friends! I want to start this post off by saying Thank You! If you or someone you know has served in any branch of the US Military, thank you! Being married to a retired soldier, I know the sacrifices made, and I appreciate you so much! For everyone, please take the time to say thank you to a Veteran. Those two words can change someone's day!


I have a new video tutorial sharing a simple masking technique to create this plaid truck. I think we all need a plaid truck to drive. Pink for me, please.


Easy, peasy! And how cute is the new Fill A Holiday Truck Stamp Set? I have two more cards below using this same stamp set. I have a product list below for this card.



This is take one of the plaid truck. I loved it so much I wanted to create a simpler version to share. Once you know the masking technique, the possibilities are endless. I will say that while you can use any background stamp you have for this technique, Whimsy Stamps Micro Pattern Stamp Set is the way to go! The micropatterns are sized perfectly to fit the truck.

I was a little bit excited about this card because I love how it came together. All the elements just worked. It's so easy to create. A few passes through the die-cut machine, stamping, and coloring.
