Layered Cardstock Stamped Cards
I love puns. And I love to make fun things with puny sayings.
I made my Nautical Christmas Cards and thought that they were beautiful, and perfect for a themed Christmas.
How about some fun Thanksgiving cards to give to loved ones and friends with a layered cardstock stamping technique.
I wanted to share this layered stamping technique with you as well.
Layering the stamps really brings the images to life and I love how pretty they look. You can get a nice image with markers, but this is nicely solid and just looks almost like a sticker.
You need some stamps- mine are Cornish Heritage Farms, some ink- I love Staz-On, it never smears
Cardstock- boy is this a great way to use up scraps! And a printer,and ink to print out the greetings, as well as glue and cardstock bases, maybe scraps of patterned paper.
Stamp the images how ever many times you need the image and however many pieces to your image.
For the turkey, I used blue for the plate, bone for the leg bones, dark brown for the turkey base and lighter brown for the turkey leg.
When cutting your images out, cut the first layer out completely.
The second layer should be missing the color of the bottom layer that you want showing.
Then the third layer should be cutting away more of the image. Like shown.
Super cute piece of pie. Do the same with all your images.
Layer your images on your card. I added some basic paper and strips to ‘sit’ the images on my card.
I printed several fun sayings out and couldn’t decide on one, so I used them all on separate cards.
This would be adorable with a whole thanksgiving table setting stamped.
You could make a variety of cards, they would be adorable for fall birthdays. You aren’t limited to my puny sayings!
