Earlier in the week it was my Papercrafting Class. The theme for this session was Abstract/Shapes and the kit recipients had 6 projects to make.
This is the first I’m sharing with you. It’s quick and easy and you can pop one together in no time at all.
It uses the fabulous new Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch from the Annual Catalogue. Now you know I love punches, so I used Page 168 of the Catalogue for my inspiration.
As these projects were suitable for teenagers or more generic, I chose to use a range of blues. These are Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight and Night of Navy. Crumb Cake is the colour for the base card and layer, plus Very Vanilla for the sentiment.
The hardest part of this project is deciding where to place the shapes. Just stick them onto your layer and trim off the excess, then stick the layer down. I’ve offset my shapes from each other down the card to avoid everything looking too uniform.
For the sentiment, I’ve used the Many Mates Stamp Set with Misty Moonlight Ink and a Blender Pen. I then cut it out using the punch, but put it in again to make it slightly narrower.
The sentiment is stuck onto a couple of strips of co-ordinating Misty Moonlight In Color Ribbon to add a bit of extra interest.
I think this design would look great in other ranges of colours, greens, pinks etc to create a batch of cards. They would make a lovely gift.
Pop back soon as I’ll be showing you another project from the class.
