I used the new Game On stamp set and Well Suited Designer Series Paper, along with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder and Metallic Pearls, to make today’s birthday card. It’s a masculine card, but doesn’t have to be. It’s appropriate for anyone who enjoys chess… or puns.

  • Basic Gray CS layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Well Suited Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 2-1/2″ x 2″
  • Very Vanilla CS strip cut to 5-1/4″ x 3/4″

Stamped with the Game On stamp set:

  • sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the Very Vanilla CS strip, at the right end
  • chess pieces in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS
  • chessboard design in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the inside of the card base

Fussy Cut using the Paper Snips:

  • chessmen

Embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder:

  • Basic Gray CS layer

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Basic Gray CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • sentiment strip glued onto the Basic Gray CS layer
  • DSP layer glued over the sentiment strip, at the left end
