Paper Crafting Blog Hop Guy Cards

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Happy Father’s Day/thinking of you/guy designs. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandy Ward’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

You will never guess what is on the opposite side of this designer series paper… it’s flowers! Look at the back side of your favorite floral pattern papers. Often, there will be a pattern that is suitable for all occasion designs. This particular pattern is part of the Garden Impressions paper pack.

Use the Oh My Stars embossing folder on the pattern paper for greater visual appeal. Add Twinkle sequin stars to the center of the night of navy stamped stars. Linen thread in the power of 3 is wrapped around a 1 inch banner created with the triple banner punch.

I usually line the inside of the card with whisper white but the bright color did not work the earthy color scheme. Instead, I used the leftover over 1×3 inch dsp piece to decorate the top along with the stamped stars along the side to bring a little of the outside to the inside. Use our paper snips to create a custom banner.
