Last weekend I demonstrated with a group called Stamping Around Australia on Facebook. It involved 18 demonstrators all presenting projects and tips.
I demonstrated the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch and how easy it is to make quick and pretty cards using a punch and some Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper .
With slim line cards being the cool card to make at the moment, I thought I would jump on the band wagon and make one too. Punching out eight of the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch shapes I simply adhered these to the card base that measures 19.8cm long x 10.5cm wide leaving the same amount of gap between each postage stamp. Adding a simple stamped sentiment in Highland Heather ink to the bottom of the card from the Wrapped In Christmas stamp set and a simple knot of Snowflake Splendor ribbon to finish it off.
For my tip I showed how easy it is to step a card up by using the Adhesive Sheet to add the sentiment. I used the remainder of the card stock from the base I cut for the slimline card and used the die cuts from the Peace and Joy bundle. Using the thin word die Joy, I added the adhesive sheet to the Silver Foil Sheet and then die cut the word out. This then allows you to easily adhere shapes you cut with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine once you remove the backing.
Finally I used my Stampin Blends in Highland Heather to colour in the ribbon. Tying a knot in the ribbon once it dries and adhering it with a glue dot.
I hope you have enjoyed learning how to use the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to create quick cards. To see all the products used in creating this card see below or head over to Bec’s House Of Craft Online Store.
