The Trip Away

This image is from a Set as well as a larger Single stamp from INDIGOBLU called Wish You Were Here and both are available from THATS CRAFTY On-Line Store. This is a easy put together project.

Versafine Vintage Sepia Ink Pad
PaperArtsy Waxed Kraft Paper Sheet
Brass Coloured Backing Card
Good Stamping Card White
A4 Basic Card Made up.
Vintage Photo Distressing Ink
Blending Tool and Pad
Round Edger tool [Optional]
Embossing Folder/Embossing Machine of choice
Basic Crafting Tool: Scissors, Craft Knife, Double Sided Tape, Metal Edge Ruler, Heat Gun etc

Now then this is a very easy card to build. I have designed a backing paper for you that's available for downloading.
Here are the links to download the paper.

However there are lm sorry to say there are a few conditions for use. As l have used samples from a digi kit and l have not altered them there could be issues for selling on the cards. So if l ask that you use this paper for Crafting projects that your going to be giving away.

Using the waxed paper run it through a Embossing machine using what ever embossing folder you have. I have made a short video all about this product and how you can use waxed paper.

Using a good strong glue secure the waxed paper onto the Bronze coloured card and put to one side.
Using the stamp ink up with the Sepia ink and make an impression. A quick blast with a heat gun will fix the ink.

Use the edge punch just clip the edges to make then round. Don't worry if your missing a round edge punch you can still make the card just leave them square.

Using the Vintage Ink and Blending tool distress the edges. Again a quick blast with the heat gun will fix the edges.

Mount onto the waxed card with a good strong clear glue. Allow to dry while we make the card base.
Print out the backing paper and using what ever method you use secure onto the card base. Trim edges.

Now all that's left to do is to secure our topper onto the card. There you have it a quick and has just enough technique to keep even the advanced crafter happy and the crafter just beginning one that's not a threat and puts them off.

Any questions please send me a message and l will do my best to help you.
