Chosen by Debs - Inspired by Nature Day 2

This really is a wide open theme, it covers almost everything and this week I have once again gone for the simple, quick and easy .

So here is my 'Inspired by Nature' project.

This is what I used:-

Woodware Clear Magic stamp
Versamark Ink pad
Stampendous Detail white embossing powder
Stampendous Detail black embossing powder
White and black cardstock
Piece of green co-ordinations cardstock
Heat gun
Olive green organza ribbon
Double sided adhesive tape

This is how I made my project:-

1 Start by taking a piece of white and black cardstock slightly larger than your stamp. Use the Versamark ink pad to cover the image and stamp on to both the black and the white card.  Cover the white card with Detail black embossing powder and the black cardstock with Detail white embossing powder.

2 Heat the embossing powder with the heat gun and once heated trim both the panels down to the same size. You should have 2 identical pieces.

3 For the final piece you will need half of the white card and half of the black card. To make sure the panels were cut in exactly the same place I cut them with my trimmer at the same time.

4 Take another piece of white and black cardstock and along the edge of one of the pieces
place some double sided tape.  The tape needs to only be half way on to the card as you need to place the alternative  cardstock on to it. Matching the white and black edges together.  

5 The stamped panel is then attached to this new layer and trimmed to the size required.

6 Matt this piece on to a piece of green co-ordinations card and then white card.

7 I then placed some double sided tape down one side on the back of the panel and laid ribbon down this leaving plenty of ribbon at the front for making into a bow.

8 Lastly the panel was attached to the based card

There you have it a quick and easy card that I think is inspired by nature.

If you are in the UK or Europe and would like to purchase any of the products for the above projects they are all available from The Stampman or your local Woodware Stockist.
