Whimsy Stamps The Infant King Clear Card

We just can’t get enough of these clear cards!  I saw this stamp from Whimsy Stamps and knew it would make a great clear card!

The fall weather is here in Minnesota and what better way to spend a rainy day than playing in my craft room!  I whipped up a cup of coffee with pumpkin spice and headed to my crafting palace as we like to call them!

Whimsy Stamps The Infant King Clear Card Tutorial

Your card will measure 6″ x 6″.
Cut a piece of white cardstock 6″ x 6″.  I used Distress Oxide to make the background of the card – I started by inking the top with Faded Jeans, then blended that into Wilted Violet in the middle and the bottom I used Black Soot.

Next I glued on a few stars for a starry night using star confetti.
The technique we used to create the background can be found in this video.

Cut a piece of clear plastic 6″ x 6″.

Cut 2 pieces of designer paper 6″ x 2″ and score at 1″.  I used a dark blue from  Bo Bunny Dot Paper.

Fold one over and adhere one side to the back top of the background piece.

Lay your clear plastic piece on top of the background piece matching up all sides, apply adhesive to the back of the designer piece and fold it over onto the plastic piece to form your hinge.

Take the other piece of scored designer paper and apply adhesive to the whole back, fold it over the bottom plastic piece and adhere it.

Cut a piece of white cardstock to stamp the design on.  This design is The Infant King from Whimsy Stamps.

I colored the stamp using my watercolor pencils blended with mineral oil.

Here are the items we use for the colored pencil technique:
Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils, Soft Core, 72 Count
Gamblin Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits Bottle, 4.2oz
Blending Tortillions (Dozen) Small

The technique for coloring the image can be seen in this video.


Adhere the colored piece to the background of the card, centered and about an inch up from the bottom.

The Stable

To make the stable for the front I cut 4 strips of medium brown cardstock 3/4″ x 4″.
I roughed up the edges using my Tim Holtz paper distresser
I then ran then through my wood grain embossing folder.

I used black soot distress oxide to dab over the top of the pieces.

Then I adhered them to the front of the card, the side pieces matched up to the bottom and 1/2″ in from the sides.  And the top pieces make the roof as shown.

Next I cut out a star using this template Star.
I shaded the edges with my ColorBox Chalk Queue Ink Pad.

Adhere to the top of the stable.

Stamp the inside with your favorite sentiment and your card is ready to give!
