Today I’m finally sharing the final May Card Class design. May is my “all the the guys” month. We all need cards for those boys, guys, men and dudes in our lives. I finally used my One Wild Ride stamp set and didn’t use the motorcycle, that was my goal. My mojo has been under the weather lately so I came across this design on Pinterest and found it interesting. I CASE’d (copy and selectively edit) it from Ann Clemmer design. Thank you Ann!
A few things I selectively edited were the Smoky Slate base, Faux Suede Real Red strip, One Wild Ride stamp set, and finally Red Glimmer & Silver Foil stars punched from the Confetti Stars Border punch. It ended up being a “make it work” moment for me once I started building it. (grin)
BASE: The base starts with Smoky Slate instead of Basic Gray. [TIP: I wanted to use textured cardstock from my “retired stash” but I had used it all. 8-(] The base was layered with squares of Designer Series Paper from Urban Underground. (shiny element #1) If you don’t have this SDSP you can use any paper that is gender neutral.
This is were I made it work. I didn’t have the red ribbon so I cut a Real Red strip and used the Faux Suede Technical to give the strip subtle texture. It may not be shiny but there is enough with other shiny elements. Finally, the larger square was popped with Dimensionals to add height.
SENTIMENT: The “Enjoy the Ride” stamp from the One Wild Ride stamp set is more open so I used the opposite color Real Red and heat embossed in Black. (shiny element #2) It was then punched with the Best Badge punch that was popped with Dimensionals for even more height.
To finish things off I added Red Glimmer and Silver Foil stars in varying sizes from the Confetti Stars Border punch. This made it easy to add more shine/sparkle (shiny element #3). Woohoo!
I hope you have a great day. Until next time keep on stamping!
