Do you have two mask images? If you have just one, then you're not
displaying a mask image to the other player. Your mask trait has a "View
when Masked" option, which is the back of the card. Below that, you need
to include an image that is shown to you when the card is faced down to
the other player. Missing one of these images may make the cards
invisible. This second image could just be a repeat of the first image
or it could be some sort of symbol. Here's an example:

<!-- ia0 -->MaskSample.png<!-- ia0 -->

When a card is face down to a player, they see the top image. The player
who owns the card can see the card face but it will have the small
symbol image shown below the main image on the card face. That tells the
owner of the card it's still face down to their opponent.
