Hi there and welcome! I decided to reach back to an older technique and give it a fresh spin. These off-the-edge stamped cards are easy to make, have little bulk, and are a great way to put those coordinating dies to good use!

In my video, I share three different ways to create off-the-edge stamped cards. Be sure to watch the video to see how each is done… and how they are different. These designs can be done with many stamps and coordinating dies. On all cards, images hang off the edge, but I trim the card down so they fit in a regular envelope.
My first card shows a stamped image on the edge of a card, with a partially die cut window that matches up perfectly. I used a stamps and a coordinating die from the new Hero Arts December My Monthly Hero Kit. Such a cute set! (More on that below.)
All of the images on this card are from the Hero Arts December My Monthly Hero Kit. I did simple coloring with my Copic Markers and added a bit of background stamping with Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink. I love that the card is one layer!
That doggie is so cute…
Next up is a card using the same technique, but showing how you can do it with more than one die. These images are also from the Hero Arts December My Monthly Hero Kit.
I added lots of shimmer to all of these images with a glitter pen.
Here is another card using the same partial die cutting trick. There are a lot of great stamps in this Hero Arts December My Monthly Hero Kit!
I decorated the background with portions of the new Hero Arts Dandelion Leaves Frame Die.
The next technique is a bit different, but also uses partial die cutting. In this case, the image is on the front of the card. (Watch the video above for the how-to!)
Instead of using Copic Markers, I instead used Luminance Colored Pencils on this card…
My last card is very simple and the most obvious. I simply created a narrow notecard and adhered a fairy die cut so it would hang off the edge.
I also added a bit of patterned paper to this one. I love the Sunny Studio Striped Silly Paper Pad.
Here are a few other videos with similar techniques:
