|How to make a beautiful birthday card using a maple leaf rubber stamp|
Maple leaf parcel card
A dark green card has a 'parcel' of tracing paper stamped with a brushed evergreen branch design, folded over a white card and tied with ribbon. A cut-out maple leaf completes the design.
Stamp the white card that is going to be the inside of the 'parcel' with the brushed evergreen branch stamp inked with the Dauber Duos. These are stamped in a random design. Also stamp the back of the tracing paper with the branch stamp. In this way you get a reverse of the design when the card is complete.
Stamp a maple leaf, inked with the Dauber Duos, on white paper and cut it out. Punch a hole in the leaf to thread the ribbon through.
Wrap the tracing paper around the rectangle of white card and tape or glue it in position at the back.
Tie the 'parcel' up with green ribbon including the maple leaf as shown on the card above.
Fix the 'parcel' to the card with double-sided tape or adhesive.
