S imple, fun card with a masculine feel using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Crumb Cake Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Crumb Cake Cardstock
- 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" of one of the medium brown designs from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack
- 2-1/4" x 3" from Very Vanilla Cardstock
- scrap of Gold Foil Sheets at least 2" wide
Place the Crumb Cake rectangle into the Seaside Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the card stock inside on top of a Cutting Pad on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place another Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot. Make sure the folder is completely on the platform with no edges hanging off the sides or the edges will catch on the sides of the Big Shot and you could ruin your Big Shot or folder or both.
Unlock the Banner Triple Punch. Slide the strip of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper into the punch as far as it will go. Punch.
Cut a 2-1/4" piece of Bermuda Bay 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon piece across the top of the punched Wood Textures banner about 1/2" from the top (short, flat edge). Flip the banner over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere them in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the ends.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add more SNAIL to the back of banner. Adhere the banner to the left side of the dry embossed Crumb Cake layer so it is about 5/8" in from the left side and 5/8" up from the bottom. Trim off excess designer paper at the top if needed.
Adhere the Crumb Cake layer to the front of the Crumb Cake card.
Cut a 3" piece of Bermuda Bay 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon. Slide one end under the ribbon at the top of the banner. Tie it in place on the left edge with a half knot. Trim the ends.
Mount one of the badge images from the Badges & Banners Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Bermuda Bay Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Very Vanilla strip so the point of the badge is near the bottom of the strip.
Unlock the Best Badge Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the stamped badge image into the punch. Carefully line up the image so it is centered in the punching area. Punch.
Slide the scrap of Gold Foil Sheet into the Best Badge Punch so you can see about 3/4" inch of gold foil showing at the top of the punching area. Punch.
Adhere the small piece of gold foil punch out to the back of the badge using SNAIL so that about 1/8" of gold foil shows across the top of the badge.
Cut a 3" piece of Bermuda Bay 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon. Fold the ribbon in half and adhere it to the back of the badge using a piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive so that the ends of the ribbon stick out on the lower right curve of the badge. Trim the ends.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strip and add more SNAIL to the back of the badge. Adhere the badge to the right side of the wood banner about half way up. Line up the points at the top and bottom of the badge on the right side of the wood banner.
Adhere a gold star shape from the Metallics Enamel Shapes to the left side of the badge about half way up.
