"Pedal to the Metal" Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! I was thinkin' that I was due to make a masculine card, so I pulled out the "Pedal to the Metal" stamp set and this is what I came up with:

Nothing fancy - but honestly, most guys don't 'do' fancy, right? Regardless, we need simple and easy cards sometimes, and this one not only fits the bill, I think it came out not too badly. Here is the inside of the card:

  • Crumb Cake – 11” x 4 ¼”
  • Very Vanilla – 2 ¼” x 5 ½” & 4” x 5 ¼ “ plus scrap pieces for Classic Label Punch & 1 ½ “ Circle Punch
  • Early Espresso: 2 ½” x 5 ½” plus 1 ¾” x ½”
  • Merry Merlot: ½” x 2”
  1. Fold Crumb Cake card stock in half to create card base.
  2. Place Basic Pattern Mask (trees) on front of card and apply Soft Suede Ink with Sponge Brayer. Repeat on 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Very Vanilla (for inside of card).
  3. Ink truck image from “Pedal to the Metal” with Merry Merlot and stamp on let side of 2 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of Very Vanilla. Stamp twice more, without reinking, moving towards the left.
  4. Use Blender Pen to pull in the ink on the stamped trucks. Use blender pen to pick more ink from Merry Merlot ink pad to first stamped truck. *If desired, place stamped card stock in stamparatus, positioning truck image over the darkest truck. Rub card stock with embossing buddy, ink stamp with versamark and stamp. Sprink clear embossing powder over top, shaking off excess, and set with heat tool.
  5. Glue stamped layer to Early Espresso card stock and adhere to front of card.
  6. Stamp “To a great guy” with Merry Merlot ink onto scrap piece of Very Vanilla. Cut with Classic Label punch, trimming off one end. Glue to Merry Merlot card stock and place on card with a stampin' dimensionals.
  7. Stamp “Hope your day...” with versamark onto Early Espresso card stock. Heat in white and place on card with Stampin'Dimensionals.
  8. From the “Itty Bitty Grettings” set, stamp happy birthday onto scrap piece of Very Vanilla, using Merry Merlot marker (ink 'happy' with marker, stamp and clean, repeat with 'birthday'). Glue to bottom of card, trimming off excess.
  9. Use Merry Merlot ink pad to stamp sentiment from “Lots of Happiness” set on 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Very Vanilla and adhere piece inside card.
