The Supplies

All of the supplies listed below are so versatile, you can use them for so many types of projects. To order any of them, simply click on an image below.

Step By Step Instruction

  1. In Gray Granite ink, stamp the swirl near the lower right side of your white card stock (4” x 5-1/4”).
  2. Ink up your sentiment in Night of Navy ink and stamp close to the top of your stamped swirl.
  3. Without inking up your stamp again, stamp below your first sentiment and down to the right a smidge. You want to do this fairly quickly after stamping it the first time.
  4. Re-ink your stamp and stamp it again as shown, then stamp below that one again as shown.
    (SERIOUSLY – that is the stamping off technique! I told you it was simple!)
  5. Secure this stamped piece to your Night of Navy card base (5-1/2” x 8-1/2’).
  6. Ink up your sentiment again and stamp it onto an additional piece of white card stock.
  7. Layer your sentiment onto a pice of Gray Granite.
  8. Punch two leaves from Old Olive card stock and secure behind sentiment layers and attach these layers to your card.
  9. Finish with a bow tied in Linen Thread using your 10 Second Bow Maker.
