Guy Greetings, Father's Day Card

The "Guy Greetings" set was one of my favorite masculine "go to "sets when I need any type of masculine card.  I'm sad to see it retiring.  I am going to hang on to it for a while longer though. I do sell many masculine cards at the craft fairs and I need to have some fun and easy masculine stamp sets to create them.

I found this card on Pinterest, thought I did make a few changes. The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Night of Navy.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla.  On top of that is the "True Gentleman" Decorative Series Paper (DSP).  I cut the left plaid piece 3-1/4" x 3-3/4" and the green piece on the right was cut 1-5/8" 3-3/4".  Before I taped them in place, I stamped the car in the middle of the Very Vanilla piece.  I die cut it with the stitched oval die.  I find I get a sharper image with the new foam pads if I just have my image facing up and I bring the ink pad to the image. I let gravity work for pressing it into the image. I do that 3 times and I always seem to have just the right amount of ink on the image. I get nice crisp images ever time.  Give it a try and see what you think.

After I got the car cut out I taped the DSP to the Very Vanilla piece.  Then I wrapped a piece of the Night of Navy corduroy ribbon around it and taped the edges to the back.  Then I taped those two layers on top of the card base.

I die cut a Night of Navy circle using the 2-11/16" circle from the "Layering Circles" framelit pack.  I After taping the car to the circle, added Dimensionals to the back and set it aside.

I cut 1-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the greetings on it using Night of Navy ink.  I cut a 2" x 3" piece of Night of Navy card stock for the layer.  

I set the circle in place on the card front and then added the words. I did not put a Dimensional on the corner where the word "day" is. I just used tape there.  And that was it.  A pretty quick Father's Day card.  It would also make a great birthday card or get well card too. 

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
