SC 051/12...

Our sketch this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations was to create a male card & of course we had to use the sketch too.
I set this sketch & for some reason or other found it very hard to do, but managed to get there in the end, I think.

Measurements -
Base Card - Not Quite Navy - 8 1/4" x 5 7/8" or 21cm x 15cm - Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 - Crumb Cake - 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" or 10cm x 14.5cm
Layer 2 - Not Quite Navy - 5" x 1 1/2" or 13cm x 4cm
Layer 3 - Ridinig Hood Red - 4" x 3" or 10.5cm x 7.5cm
Layer 4 - Crumb Cake - 3 7/8" x 2 7/8" or 10cm x 7cm

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Circle Circus, Perfect Punches
Ink - Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Cardstock - Crumb Cake, Not Quite Navy, Riding Hood Red
Punches - Large Oval, Decorative Label
Accessories - Simply Scoring Tool, Snail Adhesive, Regal Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Crystal Effects

I stamped my large piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock using images from Circle Circus & Crumb Cake Ink.
Using my Simply Scoring Tool, I scored a couple of lines along the piece of Not Quite Navy prior to adhering it to the Crumb Cake Cardstock with Snail Adhesive.

I stamped the smaller piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock with random images in Basic Black Ink, tied some Linen Thread through 3 different sizes of  Regal Buttons & adhered to the centre of the images with Crystal Effects.  This piece was then adhered to the Riding Hood Cardstock & then to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock in Basic Black Ink, punched with the Large Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Riding Hood Red which had been punched with the Decorative Label Punch & adhered to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

Happy Stampin'

I never would have thought to use this stamp set for a male card, but it truly is fantastic. I love the colours you have used and also the buttons.

It is very exciting that we have managed to keep this going for a whole year. It has been fun and I am looking forward to the year ahead.

Of course, one of the best thing has been meeting you and becoming friends.
