It’s all about the shoes

May 23, 2017

I wanted to create a male card for my class at Beachmere this week and saw a card that had been created by Irenes Bastelzimmer who is a very talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  It was a cute card created back in 2012 with current Stampin Up!  So this is my version of her card which you can find on Pinterest as well.

I punched a narrow strip of Basic Black card using the Ticket Tear Border Punch and attached it behind one long edge of a piece of the now retired and sold out Urban Underground Designer Series paper.  The designer series paper is attached to the bottom of Very Vanilla card.  I stamped “thinking of you” from the Colourful Seasons stamp set (new to the 2017-2018 annual catalogue) above the designer series paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  (Now that I have posted this online, I think I stamped the greeting a little crooked – oh well.)  The stamped panel is attached to scored and folded Basic Black card.  I stamped the shoe image from the Guy Greetings stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The images are punched out using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch and attached to Basic Black 1-3/8″ circles.  I attached the image circles to the left hand side of the card front.  The second circle has dimensionals under the top and the top image is attached using dimensionals only.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a piece of Basic Black punched with the Ticket Tear Border Punch behind one long edge of a narrow strip of the same designer series paper I used on the front of the card.  The panel is attached to Very Vanilla card.

A very simple card but one that I think most guys would like because it is so simple.  What do you think?

Bye for now,

    What a great layout & use of this set Kris. Love how you have used the Border Punch to match in with the DSP
