This image reminds me of looking through a Venetian blind and was inspired by some thank you cards I made for my son to give out to his class mates after his birthday party. I'll show you those in a minute but first...
Here's how to make this card:
- Cut a 10cm x 20cm piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Score and fold in half to make a card base.
- Cut another piece of Very Vanilla car stock 9cm square. Stamp it with the Solid Stripes background stamp using Not Quite Navy ink.
- Stamp the bird from Notably Ornate on top, using Marina Mist ink. It will look as if it's behind the stripes.
- Stamp a sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink using a Stamp-a-majig.
- Mount the panel onto the card front with dimensionals.
Stamps: Solid Stripes, Notably Ornate, Vintage Labels (retired Sale-a-bration set)
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler
Card stock: Very Vanilla
As I was saying, my son recently had a spy party with his friends and I made these cards so that he could write to thank them for coming and for the gifts they gave him.
The idea was that there was a shadowy and mysterious figure outside the window...! I drew a man shape on a piece of scrap card stock, cut it out carefully and discarded it, and used the remains as a stencil.
Have you noticed how often I use the Solid Stripes background stamp? This would be a very useful addition to your stamp collection! It costs £9.95 and you can order it from me by sending me an email or calling me on 01280 820593 - I'm always ready to help.
Thank you for joining me for Three Minute Thursday today. There'll be more fast card inspiration next week but tomorrow I have a beautiful new 3D flower to show you. In fact, I can feel a tutorial coming on... don't miss it!
