I had the best day yesterday creating cards with the Adventure Awaits Designer Series Paper Stack. It all started because I need a birthday card for my brother-in-law.
Usually when I am making masculine cards, I try to keep them pretty simple. This card is no exception. The foundation for my card is the Adventure Awaits dsp stack. Did I mention that I am loving this stuff! All of the dap on my card is from it. Be sure to turn the patterned pieces of dsp over because the backside is usually a plain color.
After cutting a piece of Whisper White c.s. with the Party Pennants Bigz L Die. I randomly stamped the splotch from Gorgeous Grunge in stamped off Early Espresso Ink. In addition, I inked the edges of my pennant with a Sponge Dauber & the Ink.
Guy Greetings is a stamp set that I nearly overlooked. But, I really like some of the images and all of the sentiments so it is a must have for me. After stamping the Wrench image from the set, I followed it with the sentiment right beneath the wrenches. Both are stamped with Early Espresso Ink. Near the bottom of the pennant, I stamped the birthday sentiment from Guy Greetings. The font is ideal for masculine cards.
The pennant is finished with a piece of 1/4" Early Espresso Cotton Ribbon that is stapled to the card with the Handheld Stapler & Mini Staples. The pennant is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals in order to create some visual interest.
If you need a quick masculine card, consider using both the Adventure Awaits dsp stack & Guy Greetings. I will be showing more of them this week so please stop back.
