Sale-a-Bration Tasty Trucks Happy Birthday

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!
