This is a classic layout.  Use 3 shapes and layer on a strip of cardstock.  Couldn't be easier!

Using the Festive Post stamp set and the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, I created a fun Halloween card.  I also added a few extra features to mine for visual interest.

Take a closer look...I'm lovin' the texture the 1-1/2" Metallic Mesh Ribbon brings to the card.  I adhere it will a strip of Stampin' Seal adhesive.

  • Don't be afraid of customizing your stamps!
  • Use our Paper Snips scissors to trim stamp images.  I like how they cut to the very tip of the scissors.
  • I just use the tip and cut very slow - be patient.
  • You'll get a lot more use out of your stamps!
