Today I’m going to demonstrate for you a cardmaking tip. You know how to build a layered image either with die-cut images for stamp sets with coordinating dies or cut the images yourself. Watch to see how to easily build a layered image without either!

Cardmaking tip on how to build a layered image without die-cutting or fussy cutting. http://www.stampingsmiles.comThe masking technique is one of the most beneficial techniques to know and use. The Masking Paper is thin, adhesive-backed paper. You need very thin paper for this technique because if you use cardstock, you’ll have a void caused by the thickness. That is not a good look. 🙂
