Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:
To start, I masked off a white card with washi tape and added a few pieces of scrap papers in the corners to cover everything.
Get your distress inks and start inking up the 'love' stamp. For this one, I used a lucky clover color which I think looks absolutely gorgeous. Make sure you get it fully-inked.
Carefully stamp it into your card. We're going to pattern it, layered on and off on the border. As you can see, I put it half on and off.
Before proceeding, let's mask off the center too with a little washi tape. This part is where our 'you' stamp will be placed later on. By masking it, all our 'love' stamps won't go through it.
Complete the 'love' stamps all the way down. To add variety, I changed the color for the rest of the stamps into fossilized amber. It contrasts so well with the lucky clover!
Once done, remove the washi tape masks.
Now, we can top it off with our 'you' stamp at the center. I mixed my magenta and red archival inks to get this beautiful blend of color!
And we're almost there! Trim it down a bit and mount it to a colorful and vibrant card stock to add dimension to the layout.
To finish it all off, I added some simple doodle lines in the corners and the 'you' stamp to highlight it further.
Isn't that cute? I really love how raw the letter stamps feel and its overall organic look! This is a really easy card idea that you can try on your next project
