Xmas Robin card (by Magda) - Mr Robin Single Rubber stamp

I think it is useful to have a pocket money card always ready.
This project is a simple way to fold a cardstock and as decoration, I used the new Mr Robin Single Rubber Stamp.


  1. Cut a white A4 cardstock 29.5cms x 17cms
  2. Stamp Mr Robin Single Rubber Stamp with Versafine Onyx Black on the upper middle part on the right of the cardstock
  3. Stamp Mr. Robin again on a piece of paper, cut the outline and mask the stamped image of point 2
  4. Colour the white cardstock with Distress Paint salty ocean  and let it dry
  5. Put some drops of DecoArt Antiquing Cream - Titanium White on the salty ocean background and move the cream with a brush irregularly over the surface and let it dry
  6. Put randomly less drops of DecoArt Antiquing Cream - Patina Green  on the white layer and move the cream with the brush as before
  7. Remove the mask and colour Robin, the mince pie and the holly with Distress Ink Pad
  8. Colour here and there with the brush using Stickles gold to give a nice light all over the cardstock
  9. Fold the bottom of the cardstock in order to have a pocket of 5cms and glue the edges.
  10. Fold the in the middle the project, and punch a hole on the right for the red ribbon
  11. Prepare a mat of 10.5cms x 12cms and repeat points 4, 5 and 6  
  12. Cut a white card 9.5cms x 11.5cms
  13. Stamp with Versafine Onyx Black only the holly of the Mr Robin Single Rubber Stamp and colour it as before at point 7
  14. Glue the card on the mat and put some Stickles gold on it
  15. Stamp on a white cardstock "Merry Christmas" sentiment of Fat Robin Rubber Stamp, and glue it on the folded part .



I hope I have inspired you with my second project for this month.
