It's my (Clare) turn today where I'll be sharing a card tutorial using Sarah's Doodle Home stamp set and the negative part of a metal die.
Here's the finished card....
And here's how it was created.....
1 - Cut a piece of gingham designer paper 5mm shorter than your card blank. I used a 15cm x 15cm square blank card so I cut the paper to 14.5 x 14.5cm.
Sarah has some FREE dotty paper in her shop as an alternative. Stick in place using double sided tape or the glue of your choice.
2 - Cut a piece of white card 11cm x 9cm.
3 - Draw a line where the top of your scallop border will be. You will use this as a guide when stamping.
4 - I was uncertain where I wanted my houses and trees so I stamped some using brown ink, then cut them out. I could then move them around until I was happy with the layout. Once satisfied I stamped two houses and one tree directly onto the white card stock.
5 - Place some metal die clouds onto the top of the white card stock remembering to go partly off the card.
6 - You can now stick this down on top of the gingham paper.
7 - Die cut a scallop border, I used a Tim Holtz one.
8 - Using one of the cut out trees, add some foam pads on the back and place beside the stamped tree and house. This gives your card a little depth.
9 - Stamp the home sweet home sentiment using black ink. Add some foam pads and stick down at the bottom right of the card.
