Stamping Cruise FAQs
Today's card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest by Carol Payne. It has that vintage, turn of the century sepia feel that works so well with the Traveler Stamp Set. Using the Layering Squares and Stitched Shapes Framelits takes all the guess work out of cutting, too.
Cutting and Measurement:
Base: Early Espresso 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Layer 1: Very Vanilla 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Layer 2: Crumb Cake stamped with the Hardwood Background
Stamp in Early Espresso, 5 1/4" x 4"
Layer 3: Early Espresso Scalloped Squares (3)
Layer 4: Crumb Cake Squares (3)
Layer 5: Very Vanilla Stitched Squares (3)
Layer 6: Very Vanilla Banner
Putting it all together
1. Stamp images in Soft Suede on Layer 5. Add some background using the "dots" the Timeless Textures Stamp Set in Sahara Sand. Adhere Layers 3-5 using Tombow Liquid Glue.
2. Adhere Layers 1 & 2.
3. Adhere center square with fast fuse. Adhere 2 corner squares using dimensionals.
4. Adhere all to base.
5. Stamp banner in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla. Add sentiment in Soft Suede, along with some more Sahara Sand dots. Cut with snips and adhere to card.
6. Finish your project with 2 gold metallic circle shapes.
