Simple greeting card using a single large rubber stamp


Rubber stamping is well established in the United States and is growing in popularity as a craft in other countries around the world. I have a friend who has a large collection of stamps, inks and card and kindly lets a few of us enjoy using them when we get together.

It's very easy to make a simple greeting card that looks great and is personal at the same time.

Time: 25 minutes

Materials
White cardstock
Sponge
Distress ink pad
Pigment ink pad in a different colour to the distress ink
Rubber stamp

Method
Fold a piece of cardstock to the desired size of your greeting card, it should be larger than your rubber stamp. You can always trim your card down at the end if you want to.
Using a small sponge, dab it on the distress ink pad.
Gently rub the distress ink over the front of the card, this will create a subtle background.

Use different sponges for different inks


Lay your rubber stamp face up on the table.
Take your pigment ink pad and gently dab it over the stamp. It's important to always take your ink to the stamp and not stamp onto the pad. This will ensure an even coverage.

Always take the ink pad to the stamp and not the other way around


Holding your stamp firmly, place it on the card in the location you wish and press down firmly. You might find it easier to stand up to get a firm and even pressure across the stamp.
Lift up the stamp and you will reveal your beautiful card.

There are lots of beautiful stamps that you can buy and use either as one large stamp or used to repeat like this butterfly card. You could also create your own wedding invitations this way.
