When stamping using water-based inks, use a blender pen to lightly pull the colour from the outline of the stamped design into the inside, creating a softer shaded look.
1) Easel cards
These stylish cards feature a raised section, held in place by a topper or button. They're a great way to display a die or particular set of papers. You can even make double or triple easel designs.
2) Diamond fold cards
Made from a single sheet of A4 card, these clever cards have a diamond shaped section in the front and are made using some clever scoring!
3) Tri-shutter cards
These effective cards feature scored and cut sections to create a distinctive folded shape. We like the design for showing off bright patterned papers.
4) Joy fold cards
These cards have a smaller card inside a larger one, creating lots of surfaces for you to decorate. We think they're ideal for using with a bold stamp on the front panel.
5) Shadow box cards
Shadow box cards have a raised front section with an aperture. They look fantastic with a stamped image set behind the aperture and embellishments around the front.
6) Centre-step cards
This elegant card shape has a raised front section and we love using it for sophisticated anniversary or wedding cards.
7) Flip flop cards
These cards are named after the flip-flop mechanism of the centre panel when you open and close the card, and are made using a die cutter and frame die.
8) Interlocking cards
These pretty cards are made using different sized dies of the same shape to make intricate overlapping cards.
9) Wobble cards
If you like cards with a bit of movement, you'll love wobble cards! They're made using a circle of card folded in half, and finished with a topper.
10) Double gatefold cards
This simple but effective card uses scoring to create a concertina shape. We like making gatefold cards look unique by punching the centre folds too!
