Chess Set Card

Project Description: A simple and impressive card creation using Distress Oxides and stamps on Grafix Opaque White Craft Plastic Film.

Designed by: Kay Molyneux

Difficulty: Moderately Challenging


  • Grafix Opaque White Craft Plastic Film
  • Grafix Artist-tac
  • A6 White Card Blank
  • Stamp with a Chess theme on an Acrylic Block
  • Versa Fine Clair Black Ink Pad
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Craft Heat Tool
  • Paint Brush
  • Distress Oxide Ink Pads (Ranger)
  • Blending Sponges
  • Gold Luscious (Indigo Blue) or Other Mica Powder
  • Die Cut Sentiment

Steps to Make This:

  1. Cut the Grafix Opaque White Craft Plastic to fit an A6 card with a 1/8” border.
  2. Dust the Opaque White Craft Plastic Sheet with the antistatic bag.
  3. Then using the Versa Fine Clair ink pad, stamp the image just below the center, onto it.
  4. Apply the clear embossing powder, remove the excess and heat set, don’t overheat or the plastic sheet will distort.
  5. Lightly sponge the Distress Oxide inks over the stamped image.
  6. With a slightly damp paintbrush remove areas of ink within the image.
  7. Put a little of a darker shade of Distress Oxide Ink on a glass mat and pick up the color with a paint brush and paint in some of the chess pieces. Then mix a little Gold Luscious with water and add highlights and splatters to the stamped panel and die cut sentiment.
  8. Edge the panel with black ink and adhere to the front of the card blank with Grafix Artist-tac and attach the die cut sentiment.
