In the lead-up to a workshop last month, I was mulling over ideas for the Make & Take – that’s the “hands-on” project the hostess and all her guests get to make themselves. A few things fluttered past my possibility-tray until a vague memory slipped in from a previous workshop where the “layering” technique was mentioned. Light bulb moment!
This was the Make & Take card we did with the Springtime Hello Stamp Set complete with envelope and matching envelope liner!
If you’ve never attempted a 3-Layered Card before these are the measurements we used. The additional ¼” for each of the matting might seem excessive but its necessary to cover any “missed-stamping” that occurs when stamping on the layered bases. The bottom mat is actually the base card which you score down the center for your card obviously, lol!
For something a little different I did a skewed card with the The Open Sea Stamp Set with FOUR layers. Basically I cut the bases the size required then cut the mats ⅛” larger. If you look close enough to the card you will see gaps in some areas around the matting. This is when you appreciate the additional ¼”.
I love this stamp set, The Open Sea. Someone on Pinterest used this stamp set on one of the Kraft Boxes – it looked BRILLIANT. Would work well with a Father’s Day gift!
Perhaps we can do it at YOUR workshop as a Make & Take – remember you only need 2 or 3 friends to attend. There are no workshop dates left for March but there are a couple of dates available still for April. Call me soon to book your workshop to avoid disappointment – 250-632-7248!
