A Guy Greetings Masculine Birthday Card

Today's card was copied from a card that Carol from Carol Payne Stamps made.  I tried to find it on her blog but was unsuccessful.  I copied it pretty close.  I did add texture to the Crumb Cake card stock and I did add a layer of Early Espresso to the left panel with the cars and map stamped on it.  I'm not sure how Carol did the background on the panel.  I think she had some card stock with a grid on it.  But I thought the World Map background stamp would work just fine.  It has to do with travel, so it keeps with the theme!!

The base of the card is Marina Mist.  It was cut on the short side and folded in half.  The Crumb Cake layer was added.  Then the panel.  The circle around the car was cut using the Circle Framelits.  The Early Espresso layer behind it was punched using the 2-1/2" circle punch.  The words come with this set.  I stamped them and then punched them out using the "Banner Triple" punch. I can't even begin to tell you how fun that punch is.  You cut your card stock 1", 1-1/2" or 2" and you can make 3 different width banners.  It's great for layering them too!!  I don't have one (yet).  I used a friends punch to make this card.  I used her stamp set too.  I have that set on my wishlist too. It's a wonderful masculine set.  It's filled with images plus words.  Even words for brother, uncle, son, dad, father and grandpa.  It's a very impressive set!!!  I played with it for a while when I had it and I'll be showing other cards using it, once I get them assembled!

This was a fun card to make. It went together really quick too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
