Stampin' Up! A Cut Above Birthday Card


Hello and welcome to my little blog!  Today's card features the stamp set, A Cut Above, which is perfect for the men in your life!  Especially if those men mow your lawn or enjoy relaxing in a hammock!  ;)  This set is from the January - June Mini Catalog and will be retiring soon.  

The Designer Series Paper used on this card is from You're a Peach DSP.  I thought this was the perfect paper for this card.   What do you think? 

Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
DSP ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Garden Green Cardstock ~ 4" x 3"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 2-3/4" and 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
Basic Black ~ a small scrap

1.  Stamp the image using black ink on white cardstock
2.  Color the image. I used Watercolor Pencils, then went over it lightly with a blender pen.
For the man's skin, I used a touch of Calypso Coral. 
3. Stamp 'Happy Birthday' with Versamark on the Basic Black CS.  Cover with White Embossing Powder, then set with the Heat Tool.  Trim around the sentiment. 
4.  Using your favorite adhesive, attach the layers as shown. 

For the inside, I added a piece of Basic White Cardstock and stamped a sentiment. 

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Please contact me if you have any questions or to request a catalog (if you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and live in the USA).
