Father's Day / Masculine Card Using Guy Greetings Stamp Set

The Guy Greetings stamp set has sure come in handy recently!  Not only did I need a masculine birthday card for my dad this past month, I also will need a Father's Day card for him and another birthday card for my brother.  I shared this card in a post a few days ago but I thought this one needed its own post so I can share more specifically what I used to create it.

First, I want to say a thank you to Lisa Young who was the inspiration behind the card!

Are you ready to create this cute card for the guys in your life?

Tips and Measurements:
  • Cut the card stock base to 4 1/4" X 11".  Score at 5 1/2" and fold in half.
  • Cut a piece of Basic Black card stock to 3 3/4" X 4 3/4".  This creates the large mat.
  • Cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to 3 1/2" X 4 1/2".  Stamp this with the Hardwood stamp set in Crumb Cake,  I just inked the middle of the stamp and then layed my paper on top of the stamp.
  •  The small black mat is 1 7/8" X 2 3/8".
  • You'll stamp the image of the tools in black Memento ink on a piece of White card stock cut to
    1 3/4" X 2 1/4".
  • Assemble the card following the picture and then add any Washi Tape you'd like.  I would recommend getting the Epic Day Designer Washi Tape since it has the black stripe piece as well as a great Crumb Cake piece for the corners (I used a little gold Washi Tape from the Watercolor Wonder set but the Epic Day would work well, too!)

Father's Day is June 21st this year and the Guy Greetings stamp set will only be around until June 2nd.  It's a great masculine stamp set for all the guys in your life!  Happy Stamping!
