Using Masking and Shadows to Create Dimension on One-Layer Cards



Hi, it's Emily here and I'm back with a video to show you how I use the masking technique and shadow stamps to create the illusion of dimension on a one-layer card. I hope you'll give it a try and share what you create.


Thanks so much for watching!
