Quick and Easy Christmas Card 3

today I wanted to share another quick and easy christmas card made using a very pretty Kanban bauble stamp set I have available in the shop.

Kanban Bauble Stamp Set

I like to use stamps in slightly different ways and I also like to make stamps for one type of genre look like something different. So I decided to make a image pattern using the long bauble in the set.

Tools Needed - Stamps, Rule, Pencil, Ink, Card Blank, Foam Pads,  Scissors,  Sentiment.

Measure card blank to find centre point and make a small mark with a pencil.

Using Long bauble from stamp set, stamp from centre to corner  in one colour ink, to make windmill pattern.

Change colour of ink and stamp from centre to edge on each side.

Finished stamping should look like coloured star, at this point the image does not have to be Christmas and could be used as a background for any type of card.

Edge card with metallic ink as a highlight.

Stick foam pads to sentiment.

Add sentiment to card and Voila! Quick and easy christmas card.

I hope you have enjoyed this way of using a stamp differently, why not pop in and see the great range of stamps we have available.

Take Care
