Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Masculine Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers. WOW! It’s Friday already.  Does anyone have fun plans for the weekend?

For today I have another masculine card for you.   I’ve told you before how much I struggle with them.  I’ve actually come up with a few in the past couple weeks.  I used the Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Stamp Set.  I love how t does the shading for you when you stamp.  Here’s my card for you.

I started with an Old Olive card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I stamped the ‘Make A Wish’ from the Life Is Grand stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the streamers from the Stampin’ Up Around The Corner Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink around the sentiment.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, on an angle so that it over hung on both sides of the card front.  I cut off the excess from each side using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Life Is Grand stamp set in Old Olive Ink.  I stamped the corner streamers from the Around The Corner stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Smoky Slate cardstock to a Whisper White mat using Snail and adhered it to the bottom of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the corner streamers from the Around The Corner stamp set on the front of the envelope and the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping.
