Almost forgot about Manly Card Monday today! I’ve tried a chalkboard effect this weekend, and gone for a hobby card because the gingham background stamp kind of made me think of golf clothes once it was all down on paper.
This is a really easy card to make, and you could make a ton all in one go.
I trimmed the black card to how I wanted it and started stamping my pattern. This stamp is long and thin, so I found the best way to cover the card was to overlap, alternating my stamping horizontally and vertically.
The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with Wow bright white powder. I added stitches around the black part with white gel pen and coloured the golf-bag stamp with Spectrum Noir markers, leaving a white border when I cut it out.
I have had a host of new products arrive today so I’m sure I’ll have a few posts up this week!
