Another two weeks just gone like a puff of smoke. Time for the girls in the Christmas card club to show our latest cards. Zoe set the theme of Gifts, ribbons and bows. I have had this wooden stamp by Inkadinkado in my stash for a very long time. I think this is only it's second outing. I coloured up with my Graph'it pens and silver,bronze and gold gel pens. I have been looking at a lot of You Tube videos
for inspiration and found one by Connie Stewart using diagonal strips of coloured card so this is my take on what she had made. I had loads of strips of white card stock so I coloured them up using the same pens as for the stamp and then cut into even narrower strips. Of course this meant that I had loads of the strips over and smaller bits too so I stuck these onto an off cut of card and used this to die cut the sentiment as you can see below.
I do like the rainbow effect this gives on the sentiment which i also cut out twice more in plain card and glued together for strength. I fussy cut the stamped image and raised up on 3D pads and also raised the layered elements up on the green base card. Only one card this time round as though it looks a simple card it took ages to make the stripe panel for the die cut!!
