Beautiful World, World Map, Here's a Card, Masculine Birthday Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Here's a card I found on Pinterest using the "Beautiful World" stamp set and matching "World Map" dies. It was such a great masculine set that I had to have it.  I have plans of mixing it sometime soon with the "Sailing Home" set.  You can see the original card here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "World of Good" 12" x 12" paper pack.  I cut the DSP 4" x 5-1/4".  I taped it to the front of the card base.

I cut a 3-5/8" x 2-1/4" piece of Basic Back card stock. 

The words are from the "Here's a Card" set and were stamped on the bottom of the Basic Black strip using Versa Mark and gold embossing powder.

After the words were done I cut die cut the globe and globe stand from the "World Map" die cut set. I used gold foils card stock for these pieces. I should have used the double-sided sticky paper because I don't care for gluing thin strips of paper.  I took my Multi-purpose glue and spread some on a piece of plastic. I folded the plastic over and pressed the glue around to think it out. I set the globe on one side of the plastic and took a small piece of copier paper and pressed the globe into the glue.  I set the globe at the top part of the Basic Black strip.

Then I glued the globe stand the same way. I lined up the top part of the stand to one of the latitude lines on the globe.  I got a little bit of glue on the right side of the globe. That glue does not like to come off, even off your fingers.  I prefer tape or sticky sheets. I can make a really big mess with a little dot of glue! 

The Basic Black strip was taped to a 3-1/2" x 2-3/8" piece of Gold Foil.  And I set this piece in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White was added to the inside of the card.  Very Vanilla could be used here as well. 

This was a very fun and easy card to make. It's a great masculine birthday card.

Thank you SO much for taking the time for taking a look today,
