Queen Elizabeth II memorial card

Due to a high volume of customer requests, our amazing designer Pete Hughes has shared how to create a memorial piece to honour her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. As the nation mourns the loss of Britain’s longest reigning monarch, we thought we could share how to make a memorial tribute from home.

You will need:

  • A4 Black Cardstock
  • A4 White Cardstock
  • Stencil Film
  • Craft Knife
  • Makers Tape
  • Distress Inks
  • Adhesive Foam Tape

How to make:

  1. Here we've used a printer to print the base card/text. Print it onto an A4 sheet of white card and trim to size. The front of the card measures 145 x 170mm.
  2. Print the template containing the two Union Jack flags onto stencil film before cutting across the centre.
  3. Use a craft knife and steel ruler to cut away the red parts of one of the flags, and the blue parts of the other. You now have two stencils.
  4. If possible, apply the 'red' stencil to the face of the base card. Use Makers tape to hold it in position.
  5. Apply Distress Inks through the red stencil. fade the colours out towards the perimeter. Here we've used a blend of Candied Apple and Spiced Marmalade.
  6. With the stencil in place drip some spots of clean water onto the inked image and allow to dry. Once dry, apply and ink pad directly onto a craft mat and spritz with clean water. Use a palette knife to 'flick' spots of the colour over the red artwork.
  7. Once the spots have dried. Carefully position the 'blue' stencil and repeat steps 4 -6. Here we've used Tumbled Glass and Mermaid's Kiss Distress ink for the blue blend.
  8. Print the silhouette onto card and carefully cut around the outside with a craft knife. Use a black ink pad around the edges where the white card shows through and mount onto the base card using adhesive foam tape.
