The images in this month's stamp set are a hot trend right now - chairs! With several styles to choose from, and some great coordinating sentiments, you're sure to find many uses for this set. For my sample this month, I chose to create a fast & simple card.
The simplicity of this 10 minute card makes it perfect for mass production. I think these would make terrific thank you cards for bridal shower or wedding gifts. I started with a 4.25" x 5.5" card base in Olive CS, then added a 2.25" x 5.5" piece of striped paper to the top front. I cut a .25" x 5.5" strip of Colonial White CS and lightly sponged the top & bottom edges with Desert Sand ink for dimension, then added it to the card. I stamped the overstuffed chair stamp on the floral paper, cut it out, and popped it up on 3-D foam adhesive tape. I then stamped the sentiment and heart image (3 times) directly on the card using Cocoa ink. I used a matching Cocoa marker to color in the 3 hearts so they would show against the stripes.
Additional supplies used to create this card:
- Mayberry paper pack
- Stamp pads in Cocoa and Desert Sand
- Sponge daubers
- 3-D foam tape
- Micro-tip scissors
