Cow cute is this beloved birthday greeting card? Sorry, I couldn’t resist the play on words!

Today’s video is all about teaching you the masking technique. I’ll walk you through the entire process of creating the mask, the best way to cover and color and much more. Did you notice the textured balloons on this card? You might think those strings will be tricky to attach but with the tips I’m in today’s video you’ll tackle it like a pro! Don’t forget to scroll down to see the video, pictures, cutting dimensions and supplies.

The Over the Moon stamp set includes three cow images that have stolen my heart. I don’t know if its their expressions or the simple line art, but I’m having a great time using it!

If you are enjoying this stamp set as much as I am, don’t miss the four additional card tutorials I’ve shared HERE in my PDF library.

The Stitched Rectangle Dies are a favorite here in the Stamp Studio. There’s a huge array of sizes, all with a stitched border. These dies are a great way to add layers of texture to any type of card!


There’s that adorable face I was bragging about! I used the Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers to color in the cow. Most of the image was pre-colored for the video, since the focus is on the masking technique, but I have an entire video series on how to use the Stampin’ Blends markers.

I used the Balloon Builder Punch and embossed them using the Subtles Textured Embossing Folder. This 3D embossing folder provides just that – subtle embossed lines.


Cutting Dimensions

  • Whisper White cardstock base is cut 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″
  • Thick Whisper White cardstock was used for the image layer
