Stampbord crazy!

Well Wednesday was a lot of fun this week (if a little bit of a long day, what with a 5am start...the joys of tv work!). I had a great time with Alex and Charlie though who both had a go at playing with Stampbord...

And here's one of the projects I prepared for the shows...

Christmas Tree Card Topper

Material List
Domino sized Stampbord piece
Silver Pan Pastel
Scraper Tools & Sofft Tool
Graph'It Aqua (6110), Mint (7250) & Cappuccino (3125) Pens
Graph'It Blender Pen
Graph'It White, Gold & Glitter Pens
Doobadoo Fern Paper Art
Double-sided Tape, PVA Glue and Card

Step 1. Colour up the Stampbord using the Aqua and Mint Graph'It alcohol pens. Use the blender tool to soften the pen strokes and lighten the colours.

Step 2. Pick up some silver Pan Pastel on the Sofft tool and brush it across the Stampbord.

Step 3. Cut out one of the small fern paper art pieces.

Step 4. Colour up the fern with the Mint and Cappuccino Graph'It pens.

Step 5. Whilst the fern dries use a scraper tool to scratch some texture in the 'ground'.

Step 6. Stick the fern piece onto the Stampbord with a smear of PVA glue.

Step 7. Add some embellishment to the tree with the white pen for snow, the glitter pen for tinsel and the gold pen for decorations. Add some more white dots in the sky for snow. Use double sided tape to stick the Stampbord to the card. Finish your card off with a stamped sentiment (Premium Craft Brands Winter Spruce Sentiment Stamp used here), diecut or peel off sticker.

This is such a quick and easy Christmas card to make and yet so effective, it's perfect for those last minute panic stations when you realise you've forgotten someone! ;)

As ever, Happy Crafting!
