I stamped the image and sentiments with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on kraft card-stock and colored with Chameleon Markers. I hand cut the Ford Woody. I matted the kraft piece to black card-stock and cut the mat with the 1/16th inch Perfect Layers Tools. Then I adhered that to an oversize white scored and folded card base. I measured down 1/8th inch from the top fold, adhered my stamped kraft piece and then using the 1/8th inch ruler, I cut around the other three sides. Perfect mats every time! I LOVE that! :D I mounted the Ford Woody image with mounting squares.

I did use a silver gel pen on the wheels, grill and top but it looks white… it’s really silver!

Pam here… When I’m making a card, sometimes my work area can get really messy! eek! Enter the Perfect Paper Crafting Portfolio. Magnets, yes wonderful strong magnets help me keep track of the dies I’m using. It’s so easy to lose a die. Panic! A tip…a magnet can help you find a die too…especially if it some how ended up in the trash can!

I can lay the dies down on the portfolio to work on design or just use it to hold the dies I’m working with.

Happy Football Card

It is often thought difficult to make cards for guys, but Jenny Gropp joins us today to show how easy it is to create this Happy Football Card.

I made this card for my nephew who turned 12. Where does the time go? I can’t believe he’s almost a teenager. A few simple dies and tools from Perfect Paper Crafting made this card a breeze! I first cut my base card out of black heavy yardstick using MFT’s Happy Die. I love the look of these cut away words and I’m hooked on using these dies! I cut out the soccer panels with MFT’s Horizontal Stitched panels and added a 1/16″ ivory border using my Perfect Layer Rulers.

I die cut the Happy word again and used the metal edge of my Perfect Ruler to cut the card stock away from the letters. Using the metal edge of the ruler and a nice sharp exact knife give you a clean cut.

Now my letters are all free! I’ll use these to pop up as a second layer on the card.

Here’s the card front. You can see I’ve added black foam pieces to the letters. I’ve doubled up the letters to give the card more stability in the area of the letters.

You can see the double layers of letters here. The foam tape adds dimension but also helps reinforce the letters so they are nice and sturdy.

Next, I used my Perfect Ruler again to cleanly cut away just a strip from the Graphic 45 paper. Using my grid mat helps to make sure I’m exactly precise when cutting a small strip and the self healing surface is excellent.

This is the inside liner for the card. And as always — if you have layers on the front of the card… add them on the inside too for a polished look! Using a grid mat is super helpful in lining things up nice and straight.

Here’s the inside of the card. I added a die cut “12” on the inside. I love how the small 1/16″ layers frame the liner and make it really pop off the black.

No card is complete anymore without a touch of Wink of Stella! I used the Black Wink of Stella on top of the black card stock. The black on black gives it a completely different shimmer than using the regular Cleae Stella.

I used a Birthday Word from Impression Obsession. I die cut the word three times and glued them together to give it more dimension…. and of course a little more Wink of Stella! Finished card is an A2.
