Righty Tighty GUY GREETINGS from Stampin Up – Day 3,
The gorgeous Guy Greetings from Stampin Up has really been a boost to my stamp sets. I adore all the images and the great male sentiments. This set has really inspired me to get creative and I hope that you guys are finding my creations inspiring.
As a teenager when I was learning to drive my Dad showed me how to change the wheel on my car. I remember him telling an easy way to undo the nuts, “Rightly Tighty, Lefty Loosy!!” It stuck with me for years and works for DIY as well as car maintenance.
Today’s card is the card I created for my Dad because this saying was so apt.
Using the gorgeous Typeset DSP – (Designer Series Paper) I created a gorgeous front to my card. I sponged the edges of my DSP to a very vintage look to my card. I loved the polaroid frame that I created for my card on Day 1, so I decided to use it again today. First I stamped the main image and then on a second piece of cardstock I cut out the middle of the cardstock using the Square Framelits. I raised the polaroid frame using frailest. The sentiment was stamped onto a rectangle of cardstock, and then distressed before creating the banner end with my 1″ square punch. I pleated some chevron ribbon down the front of the card and attached my banner on top of it.
Lastly I made a matching envelope from the same DSP stack.
