Sentiments have become more important to me than images in stamp sets. Is this an aging papercrafter thing? Is this a Covid-19 thing? Whatever the answer is, I have been drawn to sentiments lately. The Many Mates Stamp Set is full of inside and outside sentiments for your handmade cards. Look at all the different fonts in one stamp set!
You may recognize this design, as I have used slight variations of it before in making card swaps. The color scheme is Bumblebee, Terracotta Tile and Whisper White. The Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper is how I got this color scheme. Sneaky, right?
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 11" Bumblebee Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2".
First Layer: 4" x 5 1/4" Terracotta Tile Cardstock
Second Layer: 3 3/4" x 5" Whisper White Cardstock
Third Layer: 1 1/2" x 5" Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper
Fourth Layer: 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" Terracotta Tile Cardstock. Place inside the Subtle Embossing Folder and put through a die cutting machine.
To get a ribbon knot to lay flat, wrap one ribbon around the cardstock and adhere it to the back. Take another piece of the ribbon and tie it in a knot. Attach the knotted ribbon with a Glue Dot on top of the other ribbon. Easy peasy!
Fifth Layer: Place a scalloped Layering Circles Die on a scrap of Bumblebee Cardstock and put through a die cutting machine. Attach to the Fourth Layer with Dimensionals.
Sixth Layer: Place a Layering Circles Die on a scrap of Terracotta Tile Cardstock and put through a die cutting machine. Attach to the Fifth Layer.
Seventh Layer: Place a Layering Circles Die on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock and put through a die cutting machine. Stamp the sentiment in Terracotta Tile Ink. Attach to the Sixth Layer.
