Simple stamped notelet
Posted by TheDocraftsTeam, 12 Jul, 2016
If you're new to cardmaking or stamping, this cute card is a great beginner project to ease you in. With a simple and adaptable colour palette and a sweet message, you can have this card whipped up in next to no time!
1. Cut a 13cm square of white cardstock and die cut an aperture in the centre using a large circle die. Attach the panel to a 13.5cm white card blank with 3D foam pads. Make sure that the fold is at the top.
2. Stamp the individual sentiment words onto a piece of white cardstock. To ensure a nice, crisp impression, start by stamping each letter on a scrap of paper, then print onto the white cardstock.
3. Use a craft knife and a ruler to cut the words into strips, ensuring that the edges are straight and that the strips are all the same width.
4. Trim the words down to size, cutting some with a straight edge and others with diagonal ends. This adds interest and movement to the card.
4. Arrange the sentiments inside the circle until happy with their positioning. Secure in place one at a time with adhesive foam squares.
5. Stamp some black flowers onto white cardstock and carefully fussy cut them out, making sure to leave an even amount of white space around each flower. For a neater finish, turn the card rather than the scissors; this will ensure a continuous smooth edge.
6. Arrange the flowers on the card front, attaching some with glue and others with foam squares to create a 3D effect. Adhere a scattering of clear gems to finish.
