Stampin'Up! Mixed Drinks Beer Star card

We did this Stampin’Up! Mixed Drinks Beer Star card at my last Stamp A Stack event.  I always try to do a masculine card, but this would also be a great card for a beer loving gal!

Start with a Very Vanilla card base cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The next layer of Soft Suede is cut at 5.25″ x 4″ and the top Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″. Don’t adhesive yet!

Cut a length of burlap ribbon about 6.5″ tie a knot toward one end and pass it through the star, now attach the vanilla and suede layer and attach the burlap ribbon.  Now you can attach the layers to the vanilla base.

Stamp the Beer outline in early espresso ink, and the “beer” in delightful dijon. (I stamped off twice first to lighten the color) Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stamp the sentiment in Real Red ink and flag the ends.  Layer this on a Real Red cardstock strip and flag the ends.  Remember to stamp the envelope!

Stampin'Up! Rad Dad Build it Framelits card

This Stampin’Up! Rad Dad Build it Framelits card uses the super awesome Urban Underground Designer Series Paper.  Love it!  We designed a series of cards around this wonderful paper!

For this masculine card I started with a basic A2 card base in Smokey Slate cardstock.  Then embossed a layer of Basic Gay cut at 4″ x 5.25″ using the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder.  Next I cut a piece of the DSP at 2.25″ x 4″ and attached the bottom.

I absolutely loved making the tools with the Build it Framelits and included a short video on how I added some extra definition to the tools to add dimension.

And here’s the video:
