Have you ever wanted an image stamped in each corner of your greeting or project?? Today, I’m going to show you how stamping perfect corners is super easy!!!
I am loving this greeting and it was super simple to create. Remember last week when I showed you Stamping In The Round??? We are going to use that same template for this card only this time, you just need to use the squares and not the diamonds on it!
I started with a Blackberry Bliss card base. Next, I took a piece of Tranquil Tide measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ to layer on top. First, I thought it looked too plain so I stamped on it with the greenery from the Peaceful Noel Stamp Set in Tranquil Tide Ink. See the photo above. My husband said it looked too busy so I tried embossing it with the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder. See the photo below!
Next up, I layered on a piece of the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 3″. I used this size so I could use up every inch of the fabulous paper! 🙂 I like to add this layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals when placing it on an embossed layer because I feel it is more secure in the grooves of the embossing. If you go the stamped route like the sample up top, you could layer it on with regular Snail Adhesive.
Using a 2-1/2″ square, I placed it in my Stamparatus using the square template. Then I stamped down the corner image in Sahara Sand Ink. After, I stamped, I rotated the cardstock around so a new corner was placed in the stamping spot and stamped it down. Once I had all 4 corners stamped, I stamped the greeting in the center. All of these images are from the Peaceful Noel Stamp Set. I layered this piece onto Blackberry Bliss.
Using the Tranquil Tide Mini Ruffled Ribbon, I flipped over the greeting and placed it along the top with a bit of a tail hanging off. I secured it in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals placed half on the ribbon, half on the cardstock. Then I looped it around and secured the middle section, made another loop and ran the the last piece across the bottom. Once you have it all set, add a few more dimensionals for good measure. After all they are on sale today and I love them so much! Then I added this piece to the card front!
