Quick Instructions for this Project
- First, we will cut our card stock for stamping and our card base. Laying the white card stock horizontally on the trimmer, cut it at 5 1/2″. Now you have two, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ pieces of card stock. Laying the card stock horizontally on the trimmer, cut it at 4 1/4″. Do the same to the other piece. Now you have four, A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) pieces for stamping. Okay, now for the card base, laying the red card stock horizontally on the trimmer, cut it at 5 1/2″. Place one of these horizontally on the Scor-pal and score down the middle (look for the asterisk). Do the same to the other piece. Now you have two, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (A2) card bases!
- Attach the acorn stamp to the mount and stamp on the card in brown. Create a mask for the acorn and attach. Stampt the other acorn in brown, trying to match the stem ends. Color in the acorns with brushed on ink, or watercolor pencils, or markers. Stamp the sentiment in brown in the center of your card, just under the acorns. Create a mask for the sentiment and attach.
Mask off the border for stamping by measuring the distance between the edge of the card and the acorn, marking on post-it note and transferring that to the other side. You’ll need to post-it notes placed vertically. Then measure over from the other side of the acorn and place 2 more post-it notes vertically.
- Attach the leaf stamps you want to use and ink them up, mixing and matching colors on each stamp. Once you’ve stamped all your leaves, remove all the masks. With a micron pen create dashes along both sides of the border. And that’s it!
