Thoughtful Banners stamp set: Masculine Birthday Card

I have used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set on many stamped cards, but one thing I realized is that I had never used the little rectangular stamp before. When I sat down to stamp this card, I was determined to use it and ended up with this masculine birthday card.

How To Make This Masculine Stamped Birthday Card:

I started this card with some Pool Party cardstock for the card base, then I added a layer of Smoky Slate cardstock.

Then, on a layer of Whisper White cardstock I started stamping the rectangular stamp from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set with Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay ink. I tried to keep it straight, not worrying too much about it and cleaned off the stamp each time before changing colors.

Once all the rectangles were stamped, I went back and filled the spaces with Pear Pizzazz ink and the arrow stamp from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

I then die cut the Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the oval die from the Stitched Shape Framelits dies and adhered it to the cardfront with Stampin Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the label outline stamp from the Thoughtful Bannners stamp set with Bermuda Bay ink, then stamped the birthday greeting with Basic Gray ink. I stamped the same arrow stamp on each end using Pear Pizzazz ink. I punched the stamped greeting out with the Classic Label punch.

I then punched the Smoky Slate cardstock with the Classic Label Punch and cut it in half. Then I adhered it behind the punched greeting allowing it to peek out at each end. I added some small strips of Stampin Dimensionals (from the outer edge of the sheet) and added it to the oval on the card front. (Hint: the NEW Mini Stampin Dimensionals coming June 1st in the new Annual Catalogue will be perfect for these small jobs!)
