Paper Smooches World Card Making Day One Layer Challenge

Standard

In honor of World Card Making Day, the blog at Paper Smooches has several challenges going. One is to make a single layer card using stamping.

Let me clarify – I just started making cards and have no stamping ability. It takes me 5 tries to simply get a simple sentiment evenly stamped, let alone an entire image. I am a hoarder of things however and even though I had no use for them at the time, I’ve had vintage look postage cling stamps for a couple of years. I’m not even sure who made them – I bought them through a destash listing on Etsy.  Here we go –

White cardstock base and cardfront. Vintage stamp – ?, Sentiment from TPC Studio Secret Garden Set, paper antiqued with Ink It Up in Walnut, stamped in Craft Smart Black. Organza ribbon in black.

I antiqued the paper, stamped the sentiment, masked that off and then stamped the whole card. I pulled off the masked bit and then added organza ribbon to the top and bottom.
