Just Because Cards, Thinking Of You Cards

Thinking Of You | Easy Note Cards For Mass Production

Hi there, I hope you’re keeping safe and healthy.

Today I’m sharing an simple card that I was able to mass-produce with the help of a stamp positioning tool.  It features the Just A Little Message stamp set from The Stamp Market.

I started with an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# classic crest cardstock placed in my Misti.  I positioned the largest open envelope stamp first, since it’s the focal point.  Then I positioned other stamps around it, to begin making a pattern.  Since there aren’t enough images in the stamp set to cover an entire A2 card, I knew I was going to have to reuse and reposition them, so I tried to space and position them in a way to make it seem like there were more stamps in the set than there really are (for example, I placed the stamp that has “To:” hanging off the right side of the panel and then again hanging off the left side of the panel where you just see the little ribbon stamp on the envelope).

I stamped 10 panels using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and then repositioned the stamps to fill out the pattern and stamped again.  In all, I stamped each panel three times.

Next, I stamped the focal image ten times, this time in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink. I used various Copics to quickly color the envelopes (no shading!), and then used a coordinating stamp to stamp the inside of the envelope with a complimentary color.  I fussy cut the envelopes and set them aside.

Next, I stamped the sentiment, also from the Just A Little Message stamp set 10 times and trimmed them into sentiment strips.

To assemble each card, I used foam tape to adhere the Copic-colored envelope over the stamped image, and then adhered the sentiment strip over top, using a bit of foam tape under the right end of the strip to support it.  Finally, I adhered the card fronts to A2-sized card bases.

Thank you for coming by!
