Guys Birthday: DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #181

Birthday Greetings for your Favorite Guy!

This weeks' Challenge inspired the idea for a Birthday Celebration with the Guy Greetings Stamp Set!

When I was creating this card I wanted to show you the versatility of the old fashioned images and an easy background technique!

So, let's get started!  Cut two Basic Black Cardstock 6 1/4 x 5, Smoky Slate Cardstock 6 x 4 3/4, and Whisper White Cardstock 5 3/4 x 2 1/4.  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink was used for the images.  You will need the Guy Greetings Stamp Set, Stampin' Up! Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  Circles Collection Framelits, and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.

Emboss one of the Smoky Slate Cardstock pieces. I wanted to give you only an example of how embossing creates elegance.  I think my next card will definitely be the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder or any of the Stampin' Up! designs are all good choices!  You may even decide to make more cards to use them all! Wow, speaking for my self I know I can get carried away with all the fun!

Die Cut circles in Whisper White Cardstock and Basic Black Cardstock by using  the Circles Collection Framelits.

Cut strips of Basic Black Cardstock, Smoky Slate Cardstock, and Whisper White Cardstock for sentiments.

Stamp sentiments on the Whisper White Cardstock strips with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Stamp images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Whisper White circles.  Center the car image on the large circle.  Center the first stamping of the shoes on the smaller Whisper White circle.  Vary the stamping for the hats on the other small Whisper White circle.  Mat all circles on Basic Black Cardstock circles.

Adhere matted circles and sentiment with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card stamp the car images on the Whisper White strip.  Vary the shades by first stamping on scratch paper then onto the white strip for a lighter image.  Fill the entire strip with the car images by stamping off the edges.  Mat on Smoky Slate Card Stock and Basic Black Card Stock.

Adhere matted sentiment and enjoy!
