Sorry for the dark pictures this week, I just can't seem to find enough light these days, although the weatherman is forecasting clearer skies and an end to our smokey horizons this week.
This card is all about the "manly" birthday guy. You know the one! He's a guy who has swagger and likes to flex his muscles, crank up the testosterone and do other manly things. With that in mind I based this card on stamps from the Guy Greetings (can't get more masculine than that) and Super Duper. Here's the details.
Stamp Sets: Guy Greetings, Super Duper
Card Stock: Basic Black, Smokey Slate and Whisper White
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Paper Trimmer, Stamp-a-ma-jig, 1" and 1 1/4" Circle punches, Modern Label Punch, Stitched Shapes Oval Thinlets, Detail Scissors, Dimensionals, Tom Bow Glue.
|Good Guy Greetings|
Card Base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Smokey Slate Card Stock, scored at 4 1/4"
First Layer: 5 1/4" x 4" Basic Black
Second Layer: 5" x 3 3/4" Whisper White
|I decided I only wanted the "guy" image from Guy Greetings on the card face, so I repeatedly stamped it across this panel. To line up the images I used my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig positioner. I started with the middle image and worked from there.|
Third Layer: 4" x 1 5/8" strip of Basic Black for the sentiment base panel.
Fourth Layer: Two 3 7/8" x 1 3/8" strips of Smokey Slate for the Sentiment
Inside: For the inside of the card I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Basic Black and a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of Whisper White for the panels.
Well that's it for my contribution to the Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge. I hope you enjoyed it ..... mistakes, bad photography, lighting and all, and if so I'd love to hear your views . If you get a moment leave me a comment because it truly keeps me interested in designing cards and sharing them with you.
