What I love about cardmaking is that it lets me incorporate different techniques to create a cohesive layout!
For today's tip, let me show you how to make an impressive card using two distinct yet complimenting techniques: stamping and die cutting!

Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:
For the first stamp, test it first on a piece of paper so you can manage the density of its blackness.
Once you are happy with the look and thickness of your ink, imprint it on your card as seen below.
Now you can move on to your next stamp. For the second one, make it really juicy to create a pretty layered effect!
We're slowly building it up! Don't worry about doing this with your normal stamps as we are using black ink.
Next, add other elements on your card.
As you can see, I added a house and a few clouds.
You can play around with your ink and create gradients of black employing an awesome effect on your design!
Finish your card off with your desired title. As for me, I chose the phrase: 'brighter days are ahead" as it would be the best line to depict my layout!
I stamped it on a piece of white paper and trimmed it down. After that, I inked up the sides to create a dimensional look to my title.
Get your glue dots and carefully place them on the part where you want your title to sit. The glue dots will give it a 3D look instead of being flat on the surface of the card.
And we're done with this awesome card!
I love the overlapping circle effect on the stamped image! Isn't it a lovely way to create focus on your design?
I hope you enjoyed this wonderful card making tip! Stay tuned for more upcoming inspiring and creative tips
