Rev up the Fun! Masculine Card

This is one of the cards I did at Terri's Stamp a Stack last week.  Now this Chevron border punch was not on my wish list at all.  I saw it in the catalog and it did not interest me in the least.  Well, now it does!!! LOL  I guess I had to see it in person to know how fun it can be!   I can now see many things that I can do with it.  UGH, another thing to add to the ever growing list of stuff I want!  

The cardstock used here is Island Indigo.  It's such a pretty color of blue, isn't it?  

The Very Vanilla piece was cut at 4" x 10-1/2" and then folded in half.  Then the Chevron punch was used through two thicknesses of the Very Vanilla.  In doing that you can now see the blue from the base piece (which was cut 4-1/4" x 5-1/2").  

The set used here is the "Rev up the Fun!" set.  Another item that I will be adding to my wishlist.  I don't have enough masculine sets.  Though I did save the really nice detailed motorcycle stamp from a couple of catalogs ago and I think it would fit in the 2-1/2" circle.  The larger 3" circle was done on the Big Shot with the "3" Circle Original Die".  And last but not least, the decorative paper is from the "Soho Subway" pack.  When you see it all put together here it's so pleasing to the eye.  Terri has a great eye for this stuff!  I think I need her to come over and give me some decorating tips.  I'm one that just hangs up what I like regardless if it goes with the other stuff in the room!  

This was such a fun card to make and I LOVE the layout!  I will be making more like this in the future using what "stuff" I have (after I get my hands on that Chevron punch!).  I do know the ship from "The Open Sea" set works in that 2-1/2" circle too!  I will show you that one tomorrow!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
