I made this simple 5x5 card in just one layer. to get the triangle shape, I tore post it notes along the sticky edge and placed them on the card. this became the mask to protect from the distress ink. I stamped over the brown with a darker tone to add the cogs. I then removed the post its and stamped the dad with the archival ink. that's it !!

I used another sketch for this card that was a bit more complicated. to start, I inked the edge of the matt and stamped it with the cogs. I inked the edges of a smaller piece of card and stamped that with the clock image and 'husband'. I then hand cut the tag shape from kraft card and layered the small card onto it, to create a removable tag to be used as a page marker. I slotted this over the large stamped card. this was stuck down to a kraft card leaving the top edge loose to be able to slide the tag off. I created a matching insert for the card using some of the cogs and the happy birthday sentiment.

I think these two cards show how you can take the same stamps and create two completely different cards, one clean and simple and another with a layered vintage feel.
