Something For One of the Guys

Hi Everyone!

I've been wanting to make a square card for a while, just hadn't found a layout I could work with until this one. Very simple, I know, but I like the clean and simple look - especially for a guys card. The base on this one is 51/4" square and made from So Saffron card stock. My next layer is 5" of Chocolate Chip, and then 43/4" Baja Breeze. To add a little bit of interest to the blue layer I decided to try the new builder wheels (that I've had for a while) the Birthday wheel and the Candle Crazy wheel. I love these little builder wheels! It's so much fun to mix and match to create your own unique backgrounds or designer papers! For the greeting on the card I chose square birthday one from the Take A Spin stamp set in the new Occasions Mini Catalogue. I inked it with Baja Breeze classic ink and then stamped it on a piece of Whisper White card stock that I cut to be 1" larger than the stamped image. I then mounted this on another piece of Chocolate Chip card stock that was 1/2" larger again. Using a piercing tool, I put a small hole in the center of the greeting and added one of the new game spinner pieces. To put these on properly so they will spin, the washer is on the bottom, the arrow piece on top of the washer and then the brad goes on top of that with the little prongs going through the stacked bits and the card stock. I then mounted the whole greeting piece to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
So there is another quick and easy card for you this week! Hope you enjoy it and as always, feel free to leave a comment!
Until then...
Happy Stampin!
