I have a fun share from my February Card Class today. It uses the Tasty Trucks Stamp Set and Metallic Ribbon from the Sale-a-bration catalog. [I know! They are too cute and fabulous as well!] It is my masculine-ish design which I try to include each month for those guys in our lives. I was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches 272 and Narelle Faruggia’s design. Thank you Narelle!
The base starts with Thick Whisper White layered with a smaller (3-3/4″ x 5″) Whisper White layer which I stamped with the splatter dots from Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Pool Party and Smoky Slate.
Next I layered two circles from the Layering Circle Framelits (close to 1-3/4″ and 2-1/2″) and another from the Stitched Shapes Framelits (close to 2″) in Pool Party, Whisper White and A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack.
The strips are Pool Party and Smoky Slate. I love the Faux Suede Technique and it is how I added a bit of subtle texture to the Smoky Slate strip. Finally, I added a strip of 3/8″ Metallic Silver Ribbon behind the sentiment from the Tasty Trucks Stamp Set which I stamped onto Whisper White with Archival Basic Gray. (TIP: When I made my “stash” cards after class I also trimmed the ends into slant cuts mimicking the other strips. This helped the sentiment fit with the design.] Both of these are items you can select from the 2017 Sale-a-Bration catalog with every $50 order. Sweet!
