Enjoy The Game Card

Darkroom Door - Monday, March 23, 2015

Hello, it’s Robyn with you today sharing a chess themed card using the new Checkered Texture Stamp.  When I first saw this it reminded me of a chess board – perfect to pair with images from the Darkroom Door Fun & Games Rubber Stamp Set

1. Trim black and red cardstock to suit a white card front.  This will enable you to easily stamp the Checkered image into the centre of the black card stock.

2. Stamp Checkered image using clear Versamark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.  Place the image at a slight angle, right in the centre.

3. Stamp each of the chess pieces using Archival Red Geranium ink and trim out closely.

4. Affix chess pieces randomly across the checkerboard image. Place them at random angles.

5. Stamp ‘Enjoy the Game’ wording using Archival Jet Black, trim closely and attach to card front at an angle using foam tape.

• Use an embossing buddy on the black cardstock first to stop stray particles of white embossing powder ending up where they shouldn’t.

• You can easily change out the cardstock for other colours, try for a dramatic pairing to make the checkerboard image really pop!

Supplies Used:
Darkroom Door Checkered Texture Stamp
Darkroom Door Fun & Games Rubber Stamp Set
Tsukineko Versamark ink
White embossing powder
Ranger Archival Ink – Red Geranium, Jet Black
Embossing buddy

This card would be good for the anyone in your life who loves chess and other board games. You could easily change out the greeting or add an extra to customise for a birthday or Father’s Day theme. 

Thanks for stopping by!
