How long have you been stamping? I have recently discovered since I have been stamping since 2000, things are coming back in style. What was old is new once again.
Magic cards are one of those items. I don’t mean the type that you shuffle. Stamped magic cards are the ones with a black and white image. When you pull the tab, magically color appears.
I learned this technique years ago at a local craft store that had stamp classes. The secret is a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Window Sheets!
First, I stamped on the white card stock with black Stazon Ink. This image was colored. Next, using the stamp-a-ma-jig, I aligned the image to match the one on the white card stock. That way when the card is opened the black outline will look like one image.
I have been working on this project for awhile. When I learned to do this technique, the card was pretty close to a standard size card. I could not find my template from years ago. I spent many nights with copy paper, folding and cutting to try to get it right. I am not sure that it is exactly the same as the template I used years ago, but pretty close I think. Here are some photos of my trial versions.
I was getting the hang of it by the time I created the flower version. I goofed it up on the very last stamped flower I stamped. I forgot o stamp it off once first so it would be more of a pastel color. So they became my prototypes (that’s what my friend calls it )
