Visible Image Stamps on Kraft Card - Birthday Card and Gift Bag

I'm not a huge fan of kraft card for stamping as it tends not to be the best surface for stamping on, but decided to stretch myself by using it to play with some new stamps I purchased at the weekend.  To stretch myself further, I thought I would make a card for a male - foolish Sam!

I stamped the Visible Image "Fibonacci" grid/swirl using Versafine Clair "Glamorous" onto the kraft card.  Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne", I stamped the fish and the word "Rebel" from their "Art Rebel" set.  Finally, I inked the edges in black ink and added a few touches of gold pen.

I was in need of some male gift wrap, but didn't have anything suitable, so decided to adapt a brown paper bag I had put by.  On two pieces of Kraft card I used black Versafine ink through the Visible Image "Strobe" Stencil.  I then used stamps from the grid/curve from the Visible Image set called "Fibonacci" stamped in Versafine Clair "Glamorous".  I made a matching tag using the same strobe stencil


  1. three great makes Samantha, the stamps you used for the card are definitely male orientated and look great on the kraft card

  2. Great Project Sam. Brilliant for a Male. Always difficult to make for.
