Celtic Digi Stamp Card

I haven't had much time for crafting this past few days  I've been busy gardening but I have managed to make one card tonight

I chose two of the Celtic Digi Stamps from Free Craft Downloads

I used
I also used one of the Celtic backing papers from the site too I thought it would go nice with the stamps
The one I chose was Celtic1 red

I resized the Digi stamps  to 6cm x 6cm  I chose to colour them with glitter pens I used a red one, and a gold one and coloured the spaces with a clear sakura gelly roll pen   It's a bit difficult to see the glittery effect from the picture but when the card catches the light it sparkles quite nicely

I printed the celtic backing paper on to an A4 sheet of white card  then  folded in half (tent fold)  in the middle of the card I added a strip of  brown pearl paper and edged it with gold border peel offs running across the middle I added another gold border peel off.
After colouring the stamps I cut around the edges and used silicone glue to stick them on to the brown pearl paper  to the centre of each celtic stamp  I added a triangular gem  red to the two outer ones and amber to the central one
I haven't' added  a greeting to this card  I think it's better without one  and can be used for a number of  occasions



Why is it that the warm weather makes us get out there in the garden and work hard? Love your card Janet hugs xxx

Glad you like the card - I'm still trying to get the hang of digi stamps
