First Design Team Card for Rubber Dance!

…..and of course there is a video tutorial too!!!

Hi everyone

I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend.  I have been busy in my craft room as it is just Comet and I home alone today!  Very peaceful indeed!

After the arrival of my parcel from Rubber Dance a few days ago I was itching to get started on my first Design Team project and so I did!!!!

I knew right away which stamps I wanted to work with first as a particularly gorgeous shell stamp really caught my eye.  The shell stamp inspired the card design and the inky techniques I used to make the beach scene on my card.  It is really easy to recreate as you will see in the video tutorial.

The stamps I used to make this card are from the Beach Sentiments set BM1-6F which as well as the lovely quote and….that fabulous shell stamp you see before you has another equally fab beach inspired sentiment and a really detailed clam shell too!  You could easily make this card with any of the stamps from this set.

Please join me over on my You Tube channel to watch the step by step tutorial to make this beach inspired card and to see first hand the beautiful impressions you could be enjoying when you stamp with Rubber Dance Stamps!

I used the second generation stamp to decorate the inside of the card and you can see just how clear and detailed the second impression is……and check out that customised ribbon too!  As promised on the video here is the cutting guide and for the lovely Bibi who designs these lovely stamps the measurements in centimetres too!!!

Cutting Guide:

White Card Base - 8" x 11 1/2" scored at 5 3/4"or 20.5 cm x 29 cm scored at 14.5 cm
