Next up from my weekend of crafting, a birthday card and banner. The card uses the sketch from this week’s MFT Wednesday Stamp Club. I’m not usually good at lining up rubber stamps, but I figured I”d give it a shot with the striped panels. I think it worked better for me because with the large background stamps I put the paper down on the inked stamps rather than the other way around. It’s a tiny bit off, but I’m embracing imperfection here.
I finished off the inside with a few more sentiments and stars.
I also made this banner circle & picture frame banner. For the frames, I used a picture frame die and a 3×4 panel die and glued them together on both sides and the bottom. I left the tops open so the recipient can slide pictures in. The circles were cut with 1″ and 1-1/4″ punches. All the circles were stamped with the confetti background stamp to add a bit of pattern.
A closeup to show the patterns on the circle & frame elements.
