Try Stamping on Tuesday 381

October 18, 2018

Today’s card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Try Stamping on Tuesday.  I started by stamping “Happy Birthday” from the Perennial Birthday stamp set onto the bottom of Whisper White card using Early Espresso ink.  I cut two scalloped pieces from Early Espresso card using the die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  The scallop edges are attached behind the long edges of a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper before being attached to the stamped Whisper White card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Early Espresso card.  I stamped the boot image from the Country Livin’ stamp set onto Whisper White card using Early Espresso ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to move the ink around to colour the boots.  I think this gives them a lovely worn look, don’t you?  The boots are cut out using one of the squares from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies before being attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I punched Early Espresso card using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to create the three small dots on the image panel.  Usually I struggle to place small pieces of card onto my projects but using the Take Your Pick tool makes this so easy.

The inside of the card is very simple, with just a narrow strip of the same Wood Textures Designer Series paper attached across the bottom of Whisper White card.

Such a simple card but I love the finished result using this sketch.  How about you?

Bye for now,

    A great guy birthday card, Kris! I especially like how you have accentuated the sketch features to make what would have been a more feminine card into the perfect masculine interpretations!!! Thank you for joining us at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday! -Donna
