Here's the card I made today:
I used my new best friend the En Français background stamp on the Taken With Teal layer. I ADORE this stamp and can't believe it took me so long to get it - you'll be seeing quite a lot of it I think! I thought it worked really well with the feather image from Nature's nest that always reminds me of a quill!
Here's how to make this card:
- To make the card blank, cut a sheet of A4 Whisper White in half lengthwise and score it at 1.5 and 2cm to make a decorative embossed double line. Now score and fold the card stock in half. Tear the front of the card diagonally from the double line to the top of the fold.
- Cut an A6 piece of Taken With Teal and round the top righthand corner. Ink up the background stamp with Taken With Teal ink and press the card stock down onto it. Glue this inside the torn card front.
- Use a stamp-a-majig to stamp the feather twice. Add a sentiment and a swirl to the design and finish with a small button tied with linen thread.
