stamped cardOne of my favourite things is a simple stamped card with some gold detail. For today’s card I used my all time favourite butterfly stamp image from Chiswick.
A simple stamped images coloured and added to a bold blue background using Chiswick cardstock.
detail 1step 1 – Stamp the butterfly image onto smooth white cardstock using black ink pad.
step 1step 2 – Use the Chiswick circle cutter and cut the stamped image into a circle.
step 2step 3 – Colour the butterfly using water colour paint.
step 3step 4 – Fold a basic card measuring 10.5x15cm out of blue Chiswick cardstock.
Cut pink patterned paper slightly smaller and adhere to the front of the folded card at an angle.
step 4step 5 – Die-cut love word out of patterned paper scrap.
step 5
step 6 – Insert tge love word with the front side into the Xyron Creative Station. I want my adheive part to be on the front of the word
and that’s why I inserted the word upside down into the station.
step 6step 7 – Pull the now sticky word from the backing sheet and place it back down with the sticky side upwards.
step 7step 8 – Place a piece of gold foil onto the sticky word and use your Chiswick bone-folder to burnish it really well.
step 8step 9 – Remove the gold foil to reveal your now shiny word.
step 9Adhere the circle butterfly image to the front of your card and add sewing around the edges.
Adhere a strip of patterned paper to the bottom edge, and the gold word just above the paper strip.
Add scattered diamante to finish off your card.
