Crabing with Jack


Todays card is another of the new stamps by Janet Roberts, this one is called Jack with a Crab, and I think this card is very much a little lads card I hope you agree.

Ive stamped the image onto white card and coloured it again with my Karisma Pencils, then used one of my Nestabilitie dies to cut him out, I also used the next size up for the mount, and Ive used foam to attach the stamped image to it.

The base card is another 8"x 8" white card, and top of this I have layered up a dark blue pearlescent card with a patterned paper on top, for the second layer Ive used a plainer paper and a new EK border punch design this one is called Beach. The third layer Ive used a paler blue pearlescent card and again used the new border punch on another piece of patterned paper and stuck it across the blue card. After which I have stuck the stamped mounted image onto the middle of the card.

The stamped greeting was then cut with the tag die and mounted onto blue card and attached to the base card with brads, and to finish of Ive used a beach scene sticky back ribbon and some appropriate buttons.
