Stampin' Up! A Cut Above Card

Hello!  Have you seen Stampin' Up!'s A Cut Above stamp set?  It's perfect for creating cards for the men in your life!   My dad always had a push mower like this one when I was growing up.  In fact, my husband has had a couple of these through the years, too.  This is also a great set if you like to color.  I used Blender Pens on this card, but Watercolor Pencils, Stampin' Write Markers and Stampin' Blends would all work!

The New Annual Catalog launches tomorrow (YAY!!!) so today, May 3rd, is your last opportunity to purchase the Designer Series Paper that was used as the background on this card.  It's also the last day to be able to order 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots before they retire.  (Links to purchase are in the Product List at the bottom of this post)

Misty Moonlight Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"

1. Stamp the man with lawnmower using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
2.  Using Just Jade ink stamp the sentiment on the smallest piece of Basic White (I just grabbed a scrap piece, then trimmed it with my Paper Snips after stamping)
3.  Color the man and his mower
4.  Attach the layers as shown.  Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the sentiment on the front. 
5.  Attach the three In Color Enamel Dots in the lower corner
