Life Lessons

guy greetings toolsJust in case you haven’t noticed, the Guy Greetings stamp set has become one of my “go to” sets for creating masculine themed cards. Yep, it has! And today I have yet another fun design to share with all of you. I created this particular card for my Dad as I thought it would be the perfect Father’s Day card for him since he was a craftsman (woodworker) by trade. So I know he will love it!

To make this card, start with a piece of early espresso cardstock for the base of the card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of very vanilla cardstock. Rough up the edges with a distressing tool and then sponge a bit of early espresso ink over the distressed areas to give it a worn look. Stamp the “righty tighty” and “life lessons” sentiments in the corners of the paper using cajun craze ink. Cut two 3 1/4 x 2 1/8 inch pieces of the plaid and hounds tooth patterns from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper pack. layer these 2 DSP pieces as shown. Stamp the wrench image on a scrap piece of very vanilla cardstock and punch it out with the note tag. Punch out a cajun craze colored decorative label to use as a matte behind the wrench images. Sponge some early espresso ink on these pieces as well. Run a piece of the natural chevron trim ribbon across the card (I placed the chevron side of the ribbon face down on the card). Layer the wrench image and decorative label over the ribbon and secure with dimensionals.  For the finishing touches, add a few candy dots to the ribbon. Enjoy!
