Video: Using Die Cuts as Masks

Hello! I am back today to share a video showing how you can use your metal dies to create masks.

(If you are having problems viewing this video, please try watching it HERE on YouTube.)

The sample cards that I did for this video are simple, but they show you the basic steps of how to use negative and positive masks to create backgrounds and how easy it is to also emboss with them.

My first card shows how to create a simple floral background with a mask, and how to add a little bit of more interest to it by embossing the images.

This last background was kind of addicting :) so I made some more backgrounds that are ready to create more cards.
