Fifteen Minute Krafting
Hello everyone, there is a huge blog post over on the Design Team blog today, featuring more of our fifteen minute cards. This is a bi-monthly feature running on the blog, showcasing quick and simple cards, using stamps from Chocolate Baroque. We are trying to show how cards can be made in fifteen minutes or less and still be fabulous and eye-catching.
I am sharing two projects in the blog post today, both made using kraft card, hence the title of my blog post, please excuse the pun. The first of the projects is a set of little notelet cards, suitable for lots of occasions, and small enough to be gift tags, if I wanted to use them that way. To create the notelets, I took two sheets of A4 card, and measured 9.8 cms across the card, and cut three equal strips of card. I then scored and folded the card strips in half, and rounded all of the corners. I stamped the images and sentiments using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
Flora and Fauna stamp set. I die cut three squares, and stamped a segment of the image onto each square, and coloured it using Polychromos pencils. I mounted the squares onto a strip of black card, before adding the strip to another piece of kraft card. I added a sentiment from the Card Sentiments clear stamp set.
