Daring Adventure – Guy Greetings

More testosterone…with Father’s Day around the corner, many, many masculine challenges abound.  So here is one more…

Double Trouble (#113) partnering with Try Stampin’ On Tuesdays (#559)

How about adding elements from Tic Tac Toe (#166) and Inspiration Station (#31).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
  • Plaid Panel: (4¼” x 5½”) Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Sahara Sand cardstock.
    • Using the retired Best Plaid Builder Dies, the Plaid pattern pieces were die-cut.
    • All pieces were dry-embossed with the retired Subtle 3D Embossing Folder for a woven material like look.
    • The Plaid pattern was created by adhering the pieces to the Very Vanilla base.
    • The panel was then trimmed to (4” x 5¼”).
  • Center Panel: (4” x 2¼”) Sahara Sand Cross Hatch patterned piece of paper from the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper pack.
    • The sentiments, Thanks For This… and No One Else…, from the retired Guys Greetings stamp set were stamped with Early Espresso ink directly to the patterned paper.
  • Side Strip: (⅝” x 5¼”) Soft Suede cardstock scrap also dry-embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Oval Shape – Fussy Cut Wooden Planks: (3½” x 2”) Crumb Cake cardstock scrap.
    • The Wooden Plank image from the On the Horizon stamp set was stamped with 2nd Generation (stamped off once) Soft Suede ink.
    • The Foot Prints image from the retired Daring Adventure stamp set was stamped twice with Soft Suede ink to represent the son walking in his father’s steps.
    • The stamped image was then fussy cut with Paper Snips and added to the panel.
  • Metallic Button Brads: Retired Vintage Trinkets.
    • Two button brads were chosen and added to the panel.

The created panel was adhered to the card base to complete the card.

This is a really nice card for anytime of the year.  Life Lessons happen all the time.
