It’s A Guy Thing for ICS Blog Hop June

ICS’ theme for our June blog hop is “It’s A Guy Thing.” We’re showcasing cards for Birthdays, Father’s Day, or any other occasion for which you may need a male card. I decided to go with a general “You’re The Best” sentiment, so this card can be used for almost any occasion, depending on what you write on the inside. It’s almost a monochromatic card, the Old Olive broken up only by a bit of Whisper White.

 

The Glitter Enamel Dots on the left side of the card front may seem like they’re getting their colors from the graduated Designer Series Paper (DSP) underneath, but they actually come that way. These are terrific new embellishments that match the new Color Theory DSP perfectly, but you can use them with many different Stampin’ Up! products.

 

The Color Theory DSP is this month’s Free Gift when you place an online order of at least $75 and use the host code! Scroll down for details.

The new Label Me Pretty stamp set is bundled with the new Pretty Label Punch to save you 10%!

 

Here’s what I made:

This Old Olive card is made using the Label Me Pretty Bundle stamp set and Pretty Label Punch, Color Theory DSP, and Glitter Enamel Dots by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Old Olive card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ (2 pieces: one for card front and one for inside)
  • Color Theory Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″

Stamped with the Label Me Pretty stamp set:

  • sentiment and outline shape in Old Olive ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Cut using the Pretty Label Punch:

  • stamped piece

Assembled the card:

  • sentiment adhered to DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Glitter Enamel Dots in graduated shades of Old Olive applied to DSP (I used a ruler to line up the dots)
  • DSP glued to first Whisper White CS layer
  • first Whisper White CS layer glued onto front of Old Olive card base
  • second piece of Whisper White CS glued to inside of card base
