A Petite Pairs on Hardwood Background Masculine Birthday

I have not had a chance to play with my "Hardwood" stamp.  I did use one at a Stamp-a-Stack and it was there that I probably felt I needed to own the image.  I did have trouble getting a good image off it.  I think I need to use soap on the stamp, it seems to have an oily base to it because my ink kept beading up on it.  I was not going to redo the image so I ran with the one I got.  Actually it was the second one I got.  The first one is on the backside of this one! I cut that piece to 4" x 5-1/4".

I found a piece of decorative paper that was already "ribbon" cut and sponged.  What a find, huh?  LOL  And I added an embossed Marina Mist circle to the top of it.  

I took out my "Petite Pair" set and stamped the words.  I punched them out with the 1-1/4" circle punch and then used the 1-3/8" circle punch for a border.  I set that piece in place using Dimensionals.  I added 3 Marina Mist "Candy Dots" to the circle.  I wrapped some linen thread around the panel and taped the ends on the backside.  Then I took a piece of Marina Mist decorative paper that was folded in half and punched it using the little banner punch. I made sure the fold butted up against the flat end of the punch so I could have a long piece of punched paper.  Though I did keep it folded in half.  I added glue to the inside and "hung" it over the thread and held it in place for a few seconds so the glue would set up enough to let go of it.  I added an Early Espresso "Candy Dot" to the center of that piece. 

I layered the decorated panel on a half sheet of Crumb Cake card stock and that was it.  A very quick and simple masculine card to make.  

I got my inspiration for this card from a card I found on Split Coast Stampers.  You can see that card by clicking here.
