Savi Sunday 60 - Embossing with Masks

SAVI Sunday (Stamping & Various Inspirations) 60:  Embossing With Masks

Today I have a great way for you to use our Basic Pattern Decorative Masks.  Normally, crafters think of masks just for sponging color through onto cardstock to have the pattern show through, but this is a fun way to expand your card making. 

Let's take a look at today's project: 

Stampwithlisabrownsavi60

First off.... I LOVE black-n-white cards, don't you?  I keep saying I am going to create a black-n-white series.  Leave me a comment if you would like to see that!

  • Basic White card base cut 4-1/4 x 11 scored and folded at 5-1/2"
  • Basic Black layer cut 3-3/4 x 5" and adhere to card base
  • Basic White top layer is cut 3-5/8 x 4-7/8"
