The sandwich for embossing this type of mask is: A / tan mat / card right side up / mask / 2 B plates and possible shim/s depending on your machine
You place the mask on the front edge of the card
and feed the uncovered part through the Bug first.
The reason for this is that you will avoid the drop from the mask to the card that can give you a nasty line!
(This is also the way to use folders when emboss straight onto card.)
now score your centre fold for an A6 card
you will see that the pattern is continued over to the back of the card - using lines A5 and DL on the board - score 2 further lines.
when folded your card will look like this, which I think is a professional finish to the embossed front.
The embellishment is another from my bits and pieces box that I coloured with Promarkers and then triple embossed.
The name of the stamp is Floral Spray from Elusive Images -
The Mask is called Blossom - you can buy these from Liz at make a lasting impression for £3.91 including postage.
I do favour simple and clean cards, but these masks can be used to add colour.
You can spray with glimmer mists, ink over the mask with distress inks, paint or chalks, even embossing pastes and the stencil washes clean is a mild soapy water.
Thanks for dropping by - have a good day whatever you are doing!
