Mask-erade Class – Day 5, Heat Embossing (Masking Patterns)

Today I have a fun and bright one-layer card to share. I’ve been taking the Mask-erade class over at Online Card Classes, which I have thoroughly enjoyed and learned a lot from.


I took my cue for this card from Laura Bassen’s where she masked a pattern with clear embossing powder. You can get a little peek at her card, bottom center.


The layout for this card  was inspired by this week’s CTS #125.

This first card was actually my 2nd attempt at this particular technique. The card below was my first attempt.


My 1rst attempt. My envelope of clear embossing powder is tainted with white embossing powder! Oh!!!!

Apparently my envelope of “Clear” embossing powder has been tainted white, WHITE embossing powder! Grrrr, all of that stamping!  My husband says that he likes the effect because you can see the bottom “hello” better.

Oh well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I like my 2nd attempt much better.


I’m pretty happy with it.

It was difficult to photograph this card, especially the bottom part.
