I am back this week!! Well today we are showcasing the stamp set Guy Greetings on the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog!! I love this set. You can cover every man in your life with this set. When I saw we were doing this set for this week I was especially excited because today is my Step-dad's birthday!! So it was perfect timing for me.
I made a birthday card with this set for this week's challenge. But I plan on using it also make father day cards for all the important guys in my life who are dads.
Since this is a card for a man I wanted to keep it simple and clean with not a lot of fuss. But it still had to have some detail. I kept the colors neutrals because. I went with Baked Brown Sugar, Black and Whisper White for the cardstock. I used the Honeycomb Embossing folder to add some detail. I felt it was a MANLY embossing look. Then I just used the Banner framelits to cut out some banners.
Now I didn't want to keep the banner white so instead of stamping it I decided to use washi tape. I always forget about washi tape when it comes to my cards. I love washi tape but mainly use it in my planner. The sentiment's come from the Guy Greetings set. The circle was punched out with the 2" circle punch. The ink pads I used were Jet Black Staz On Ink and Baked Brown Sugar. Oh!! Last but not least....I used our stapler to staple that little banner to the circle. I love that mini stapler!!!
Here is a closer look at the sentiment. I don't know if you can see it but I love the lettering in this set. There is dimension and the letters have details in them. It's clean but still gives them a nice look.
Well that is it for my card this week. I really hope you enjoyed stopping by and I hope you check out all of the other girls What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog and see what ideas they came up. Everyone is so creative and talented.
Happy Crafting everyone and see you next week!!
