Let's create a baker's dozen cards with the beautiful London Calling Club Stamp collection!

London Calling Club Stamp Kit

Our first task is to trim, score, fold and stamp the twelve sheets of paper included in the kit. Download and follow the instructions carefully, and do it when you're feeling sharp, as a few of them might pose a challenge. Click to Download: 0215ALCM

CARDS 1, 2 & 3

Just about anything can be attached to the Antique Bronze Round Frames included in the kit. I chose to add a few Dazzles stickers to the surface and tied a ribbon through the top hole. The Mini Vintage Postage Stamps from the Lite kit also make a terrific addition, but can be omitted if you don't have them on hand.

CARDS 4, 5 & 6

This card structure was designed to help you fulfill the monthly CS Card Sketch Challenge from Marya K. on our forum. I loved how the Ivory Text Weight Print made three unique, perfectly spaced strips for each card. Round the corners and staple a ribbon to the stamped sentiment.

CARDS 7 & 8

The two cards above utilize the lower right quadrant from the Ivory Text Weight Print. Simply tear away the perimeter of the art panel and layer onto a card base. Use a craft knife to cut a slot along the edge of the stamp cancellation to tuck in the sentiments.

CARDS 9, 10 & 11

All of the card elements came from three sheets of paper with the exception of the .75x4.25" Blue strip. A ribbon or washi tape could make a nice substitution here, as well.

CARDS 12 & 13

Stamp the phone booth onto the 2.5x5" panels with India Black ink. Stamp again onto the 2.5x3.5 panels with Ash ink. Use a craft knife to create "doors" on the India Black phone booths, and align the Ash phone booths within the openings. The "Thinking of You" sentiment from the Greetings UM was cut in half to create two lines of text to fit easily within the opening.

Have fun making your cards, and be sure to experiment by substituting the same cutting instructions with papers from other collections.

Cheerio!
