Friday Simple Stamping – Men’s Day – November 20, 2020
In the International Calendar of Days, November 19th was Men’s Day. So, today, I bring you a selection of easy to create masculine cards. This is also the theme challenge over at the Watercooler this week: WWC298.
I am featuring the product: WORLD OF GOOD – MEMORIES & MORE CARD PACK. While the Memories & More Card Packs available from Stampin’ Up! can be used for Memory Keeping, I love to use them to create quick, easy and beautiful cards. Add-on the Assorted Memories & More Cards and Envelopes and you are good to go without even stamping or cutting anything! Yet it is a lot of fun to mix things up.
Easy – Take A Risk
The 4” x 6” Mossy Meadow card is used as a mat and added to a pre-cut and scored card base. The smaller Cinnamon Cider Globe Atlas 3” x 4” card is used as the main image. The sentiment is trimmed from another 3” x 4” card (leaving a 3” x 3” piece to use on another project). As a simple embellishment, I used a ½” x 4¾” strip of Whisper White as a banner flag. The ends can be cut by hand, but I chose to use the Banners Pick A Punch to cut the flagged ends.
Step Up – Have an Adventure
To Step this card up, I used a Cinnamon Cider standard card base to match to compass on the 4” x 6” card, which I tore and fussy cut saving the other card part for another project. I married this card up with the 4” x 6” Black and White Map card. I trimmed 1¾” off the edge. The sentiment was trimmed from the center of a 3” x 4” card (leaving 2 pieces approximately 1¼” x 3”). The sentiment is matted with a scrap of Cinnamon Cider to match and separated Black from Black.
Stepped Up – I See You
Stepping Up this card, I used additional tools, employing Dies and the Cut & Emboss Machine.
If you recall, I mentioned that I had two pieces remaining from the sentiment I cut in Have an Adventure above. As the Memories & More Cards are double-sided, the reverse was the Gray and Black Script. I matted each piece in Basic Black and fit them across the top and bottom of the card. I married these pieces with the 3” x 4” Black and White World Globe card which I matted in Whisper White. For a better fit, I trimmed the card down to 2¾” x 3¾” with the mat at 3” x 4”. The stamped sentiment is from the See the Good stamp set. I felt that the words were so appropriate for this card. The sentiment is stamped on a scrap of Brushed Silver cardstock in had my stash. I could have used Smoky Slate to match my chosen card base, but I liked the soft shine. The sentiment is die-cut with the Layering Circle Dies and is centered over the Vellum Open Swirl from the Painted Labels Dies.
