Hello, it's been a while since I've touched After Effects but let's start it with a bang!

In any case, whenever I try to mask this particle effect in the adjustment layer, a black background forms behind the effect.

Attached is the picture demonstrating this phenomena. Ideally, there would be no black background and there would be the underneath cardboard layer on the outside of the ring as well.

Any ideas?

I'm using Adobe CS6 and that's about it.

Don't mask. Make a circle on a solid and use it as a track matte.
