To short cut making some thank you cards, I purchased a box of simple thank you cards and added a splash of color - a big, bright splash! The cards were coated and thought I could stamp directly on them, but when I tried, it just did not work. I could not get a nice clean image. So I had another idea...
- Color images directly with markers, blending colors on image, and then stamp on sticker paper. While the stamps are inked, stamp envelops at this time too.
- Cut out images. For the areas close to small/thin stamped lines, use a craft knife set aside
- The box surface is great for the bold stamps! Color images directly with markers, blending colors on image, and then stamp. For the sentiment and border, use the blending blox. Turn ink pad 180 degrees where the ends meet.
