Stampin' Up! doesn't have any chess stamps but I didn't let that stop me! The card is larger (5 x 8) than I normally make as we had to have room for about 70 kids to sign. Using Basic Black for the base I created a chess board with 1x1 Very Vanilla squares (great way to use up scraps! I made 3 of these cards and it was so nice to use pieces that I had in my scrap bag!).
The sentiment was printed out on the computer. I found the "Keep Calm" free font and thought it was a fun saying to use on the card.
The chess pieces were made by printing out some templates and tracing them onto Very Vanilla and then fussy cutting. I sponged the edges a bit with Sahara Sand ink to give them some dimension. I added the line details with the pen tip Sahara Sand marker.
The sentiment panel and the pieces are popped up with dimensionals.
These were fun cards to make and were a great ending to a fun year of chess club at the boys school.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
