Guy Greetings and a Challenge
I love the sketch on Technostampers blog this week and used it to make a card for my Beachmere class next week.
I embossed Smoky Slate card using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and attached it to the left hand side of Very Vanilla card. I wrapped the edge of the embossed card with Basic Black 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon and stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Guy Greetings stampset onto the lower right hand corner of the Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the “tool” image from the Guy Greetings stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out using the smallest Labels Collection Framelit Die before attaching it to Basic Black card cut using the second smallest Labels Collection Framelit Die. Using the image panel as a guide for placement, I pierced the shape of a larger Label Collection Framelit using the Festive Paper Piercing Pack onto the Very Vanilla card. I attached the Very Vanilla card to scored and folded Basic Black card using dimensionals and then attached the image panel, also using dimensionals.
Inside I kept it simple with a strip of Smoky Slate card embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and a narrow edge of Basic Black card.
I don’t use my Paper Piercing Packs often enough but I do love the subtle texture that it adds to your cards. Our Paper Piercing Tool is so fine and leaves a really delicate impression, especially when combined with the large Paper Piercing Mat.
I love the way this turned out and I am sure the ladies at Beachmere will too. They have been asking for male cards – but not with a ship or a fish, so this stamp set may be my saviour.
Bye for now,
