The Duck Stops Here Card by Monica Edwards

The Duck Stops Here 
Created by Monica Edwards 

Hi everyone here is a card I created for KellyCraft™ with my Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™.   I created a sort of collage with the stamp and then matted it against some matching patterned paper.  I used my tool to make sure the stamped pictures were lined up evenly.  Then I added some buttons - I am notorious for adding embellies on my card crooked and Iove my Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square because now everything is aligned perfectly.


KellyCraft™-  Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square, Multi-Mat™
                     - Duck Commander® The Duck Stops Here stamp 
Black card stock
Wood grained patterned paper, brick red houndstooth patterned paper
Black ink pad
Dark yellow buttons
Scissors, Paper Trimmer 


Ink stamp with black ink and stamp 4 times on wood grain patterned paper.  Cut out each image and rough up edges a bit.  

Use Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square to align and mount 4 images, 2 over 2, on brick red houndstooth patterned paper.  Trim paper to create mat about 1/8" on all sides.

Cut second piece of wood grain patterned paper to serve as accent piece beneath stamped images.  Mount off center on the right upper front of card, about 1/8" from edges.   

Mount stamped images centered on card front.

Use the Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square to measure in about 1" from right edge, then use end of scissor to gently tear down on wood grain paper about 1".  

Use Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to align and mount 2 buttons to the right of stamped images on wood grained paper.  

I hope everyone has enjoyed my post for today and thanks so much fro stopping by!!
