Oh Brother... A Masked Card...

(Please note... affiliate links are used throughout this post. Thank you for your continued support!)

Welcome back to another installment of the Oh Brother series... a blog series chronicling my adventures in learning my Brother ScanNCut.


If you read the very first post in this series, you know that I leaned heavily on video tutorials from the lovely Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and May Flaum. Not only did they give me countless ideas, but also perfectly practical tips for my machine!

For this card, I am putting Julie's masked card technique to use. You can find her blog post HERE and her video HERE.


I just LOVE this idea! so simple, but so very effective! Plus, it's such a great way to utilize my machine!

Here is my little giraffe stamp, getting scanned in...



Once they were scanned in, I created a cut file and cut multiple versions.... Here they are being used as masks...

I then cut out my masked and stamped paper into some circles... using my ScanNCut again...
And here is the resulting card...
I ended up giving this to a new neighbor who has a little boy... seemed appropriate, and it was a great place to put my information and welcome her to the neighborhood!

This was another great way to learn about my machine and all that it is capable of doing. I can't wait to try this again!


So, what did I learn about my machine during this project?
  • Masking a stamp is one thing, but with the ScanNCut, it makes it so easy to cut out multiples and really push the design further.
  • Scanning in my stamped paper, then adding the circle cuts on top was THE BEST way  to make sure that I cut my circles on the exact part of the design that I wanted! 

Some, but not all of the supplies used in these projects:
