Creating A Symmetrical Opposite Corner Card

I wanted to create a card that was symmetrical on opposite corners, but wasn't really sure where to begin. But using the stamp press it made this so easy I just had to create a card to share so that I could tell you all. It is so easy I really can not believe I had not thought of it before.



To watch the technique on video, pop over to my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Supplies Used

1 Piece A4 Pale Blue Card
1 Piece White Card for Stamping 
1 Piece Navy Ribbon
Stamp Easy Stamp Press
Spectrum Noir Finesse Ink Pad in Rustic Brown

Post it notes for masking

Instructions

Take a piece of white card meassuring 5 3/4 Inch by 4 Inch. Place a mark on the base of the stamp pree so that you can line up the card each time. In the bottom right corner stamp the outline of the flower.


With out moving the stamp, turn the paper and line it up.to your base mark. Re ink and stamp the flower.

Line up the layering stamp and with the spectrum Noir Midas stamp the layer. Spin the page the same as before and repeat the process.

Stamp the outline stamp onto a post it and fussy cut out as a mask. Cover the flower you have just finished and repeat the process with the leaves and further flowers.
Stamp the sentiment in the middle when you are happy with your pattern
