This is the card I made my hubby for his birthday at the beginning of the month. I had totally forgotten to share it with you all. I have to admit that this is a super easy card to make, but I think it looks perfect for any guy's birthday card. The Guy Greetings Stamp Set has definitely become my go-to stamp set for masculine cards! I just love it!
- The card base is a 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock folded in half.
- The Lost Lagoon Cardstock layer is 4" x 5-1/4". The Hardwood stamp was stamped on top of it with Sahara Sand ink. The splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set was stamped all over the piece with Lost Lagoon ink.
- Cut one 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of the text paper from the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP), and one 1-1/2" x 4-3/4" of the Basic Black/Very Vanilla diagonal-striped paper from the same set of DSP. Punch one small end of both pieces with the Banner Triple Punch. Sponge both of the banners with Sahara Sand ink. Attach the text paper banner just to the right of center of the Lost Lagoon layer, making sure to line the top, straight edge of the banner with the top edge of the Lost Lagoon layer. Attach the other banner to the right of the first banner, lining the top of the banner the same as the first. Curl the points of the banners up a bit for dimension.
- Cut one 4" x 1" piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock. Stamp the "Happy Birthday" stamp from the Guy Greeting Stamp Set on the left side of the piece with Early Espresso ink. Sponge the edges of the strip with Sahara Sand ink. Attach it across the Lost Lagoon layer, placing it just above the bottom point of the striped banner. Poke a hole in the bottom, right corner of the Sahara Sand strip, and insert a small brad from the Antique Brads set. Attach the Lost Lagoon layer to the Sahara Sand card base.
- Stamp the tools stamp from the Guy Greetings Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with Early Espresso ink. Punch it out with the 2" Circle Punch. Sponge the edges of the circle with Sahara Sand ink.
- Die-cut a circle from a scrap piece of Early Espresso Cardstock with the # 5 die (counting from the smallest die) in the Circles Collection Framelits Dies. Attach the tools circle on top of the Early Espresso circle, and then attach it to the right side of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. See picture for placement.
