Hello, Marie from http://legojenta.blogspot.com here today, showing you a quick and easy card to make, using some of your favorite Hero Arts background stamps! Here’s the card I made, using a background stamp to make a trendy patterned tree shape:
I embossed the zig zag background stamp onto green cardstock, and cut out a tree shape using an x-acto knife and my ruler. If you emboss the entire background stamp, you can probably cut more then one tree shape from the same piece, and so I think this would be great for mass-producing as well =)
I then cut a small piece of brown cardstock for the tree trunk, slightly taller then I needed, and adhered it to the back of the tree peeking out from the bottom. I adhered the tree shape onto a white cardbase and stamped a sentiment besides it in red ink. I didn’t have a HA Christmas sentiment stamp, so I used one from Lawn Fawn. To finish off the card, I rounded all four corners with my corner chomper =)
I hope you enjoyed this little tip about using background stamps to add pattern to simple Christmas tree shapes. This could be used for other holiday shapes too, like ornaments, stockings etc =) Oh, and you could easily use your dies or punches instead of cutting something out by hand like I did. Lots of fun options to use your background stamps on shapes instead of just on your backgrounds =)
Have a great rest of your week!
