I love it when I make something that is cute and easy. These cards only take minutes to make and what makes it super easy is that I can cut the cards and tags with my Cricut using Sure cuts a lot software, take a look:
I used this weeks sketch over at 2sketches4you (Yay, I got it done on a Monday woo-hoo!) and the Bon Appetit stamp set from The Rubber Cafe. I colored the image on the front of the card with water-based brush markers (Tombow, Marvy and Whispers) then I breathed on the stamp to re-moisten the ink and stamped. This is a great way to make a multi-colored image with a rubber stamp. A word of caution: Don’t use solvent based markers (Copic, Sharpie, Bic Mark its) to color the rubber, they dry too quick and may stain or damage your stamp, also this technique does not work well with most clear stamps, the marker ink wants to bead up. I really like The Rubber Cafe stamps because they are deeply etched and they stamp perfectly every time so you don’t end up wasting a lot of cardstock trying to get a good impression.
I was inspired to make this svg that you can cut with your cricut if you have SCAL software after seeing a wonderful tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers. I would use their tutorial if you do not have a cricut and simply make a tag with scallop scissors. I cut my cards out of K&Co double-sided paper, I love how you can see both sides of the lovely paper!
Thanks for stopping by and till next time happy crafting!
