Happy Tuesdee, Bloggers!
I made three cards in a real big hurry today. That's because I had a crazy day. Does this happen to you? But I've had this idea rolling around in my brain, so I acted on it.
This is something you can do super-duper quick that will make you look like a genius.
1. Stamp some art onto a piece of Ivory paper. My random scrap measured 4.25x9". My stamp choice was the cool medallion from the Tribal Art Nouveau Unmounted Stamps. (I have a really hard time spelling Nouveau. It's worse than trying to spell fuchsia.)
2. Place the stamped paper into a ScorePal with the plain side up. Score every half inch, horizontally and vertically.
3. Rub a CS® Ash ink pad directly onto the raised grid formed by the score lines. I like the Ash color for this . . . it's a little less harsh than black. Do you have that Ash inkpad? If you don't . . . well, we can fix that. It's sort of like a soft charcoal gray, and it's pretty.
4. Trim the sheet of artwork into three 3x4.25" pieces. Matte with Black (3.25x4.5") and Red (4x5.25"); layer onto a Gray (5.5x8.5", folded) card. I attached the artwork with black photo mounting corners.
5. Add a stamped greeting. This sentiment is from the Tribal Collection Unmounted Stamps I experimented with placement of the same greeting on all three cards. I can't decide which spot I like best.
There you go. Five quick steps to three quite fabulous cards.
