Guy Greetings, February 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternate Card, Masculine Birthday Card

I thought it was time to make a masculine card. It seems I'm always seeing lady cards but not so many masculine ones. So today I thought I'd get out my favorite masculine set "Guy Greetings" and see what I could come up with!

I took the February Paper Pumpkin kit and got out the darker, Night of Navy pocket piece and the slider.  I cut the pocket piece off to fit where I wanted the card to go.  I cut the top part off at 1-1/2", that included the two tabs that were standing up.  Then I cut 1/4" off the bottom. You want this piece to measure a hair under 5".  I cut the bottom of the slider part to 4-3/4".  

Before I put the holder part together, I set the slider part in place and took a pencil and lightly traced the rectangle for the "happy".  Then I moved it up a little and traced another for the "birthday" and once more for the "to you".

Then I glued the bottom shut and taped the one side closed. I set it aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.

I stamped the car and colored it in with the Pool Party marker.  I colored the tires in with the Basic Black marker and the wheel hubs, fender and grill with the Smoky Slate marker.  I die cut it with the stitched oval die. I added a scalloped Pool Party oval behind it. Kind of wished I would not have used the scalloped, it's a bit more feminine than I thought it would be.  Oh well, it's the car they will look at, right?  LOL

I thought the background could use something so I took the largest oval die and cut a Night of Navy piece.  I set it on the back of the pocket and lined it up where I thought it looked best and slowly turned it over so I could tape it together.  Once I got it taped enough, I taped the entire piece and set it in place.  Then I added the car using Dimensionals.  

I stamped the words on the slider piece and put it in the pocket and that was it.  Pretty easy and a good way to use those invitations that you don't need!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
