You will require:

Zendoodles Peace stamp

Coloring pens of your choice
Large rectangular pre-scored white card
Piece of white card just a little bigger than the stamp
Co-ordinating backing paper.
Bakers twine
Black fine liner pen
Double sided tape

doodle card, peace

To make:
Stamp Peace in black ink onto the smaller piece of white card.
With the fine black pen doodle a variety of patterns in each letter.  Choose two or three different colored pens and color in the letters, leaving plenty of white showing. Attach this card to the backing paper with double sided tape, then wrap a length of bakers twine several times around the lower part and tie securely. Attach to the pre-scored card and with the black pen draw running stitches around the edge of the card. Finish by stamping  a seasonal greeting inside the card.

Although our card is a Christmas one, ‘peace’ is a greeting that can be used all through the year.  It would look great in Rasta colors, too.


Mothers Day Card

We raided our craft box for materials to make this last minute geometrical style Mother’s Day card, although it could be used any time during the year when you want to send hugs and kisses to your mom!

Materials required:  One 8 inch (20cm) square white card, two squares of colored card, a white doily, a large circle, large stamped flower for the centre, a brad, stick on pearls, three colors of hemp twine, die cut letters and double sided tape.

The flower was stamped in pastel colors on water color paper and teamed with a die cut doily and a die cut circle, then fixed together with a dark maroon brad.  A dark pink square was layered onto a slightly larger turquoise green square with double side tape. Three different types of twine* were then wrapped around each corner and fixed in place with tape, before being attached to the card front.  The circle design was then attached, die cut letters were used for the simple message and the design was finished with some stick on pearls and some doodling with a pen.

*Twines used were pale pink and white 1mm bakers twine, Cotton Candy 1mm hemp metallic bakers twine and 1mm teal hemp cord.
