I used a fun technique with a new stamp I purchased. It is a background stamp from Impression Obsession called “Cover a Card.” It is the coolest. I inked my stamp and placed it on my Mega Mount. The Mega Mount is a 6" x 6" slightly curved acrylic block with a handle. It is made to make stamping large stamps easier. I rolled the design on the cardstock and voila! It’s that easy. I am excited about this concept because it will allow me to create custom backgrounds using inks.
1. Create a 5” x 5” card base using black cardstock.
2. Trim blue cardstock to 5 ¾” x 5 ¾” then punch floral design around the page. Adhere to card base.
3. Trim white cardstock to 3 ¾” x 3 ¾”, center on blue cardstock.
4. Trim white cardstock to 3 ½” x 3 1/2” and stamp image on page. Adhere to the center of the white cardstock using foam squares.
5. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock, then die cut. Apply chalk while paper is still in the die. Adhere to the center of the card using foam squares.
6. Apply liquid pearls to the punched design. Allow to dry.
7. Tie a bow just below the tag. Attach button using twine.
