This card is a very simple but dynamic card to make. And can be done fairly quickly. You could do this by stamping by hand, but I recommend using a stamp positioner tool like the Misti. You can use any stamp positioner tool as long as you have a grid paper to guide your card front.
I used a sentiment from Maker Forte’s Fall Memories but you can use any stamp to create this same effect.
First place your grid paper in the far left corner of your Misti, and then place your card front in the same corner.
Next position your stamp in the middle of the paper and make sure it is straight. Then pick up the stamp with the door and ink it up. Stamp your image onto the card front and repeat the process if you did not get a clear image.
Next you will move your cardstock up 2 squares, which in this case equal 1/2″.
Then repeat the process of stamping your image to the card front. Be sure to clean your stamp in between colors.
Next stamp the focal sentiment with Maker Forte’s Color Hive Clear Ink and heat emboss black embossing powder over the stamped image.
Trim the sentiment down and place some double-sided foam adhesives along the backside to give the repeating pattern background dimension.
