Just Add Ink #273 - Guy Greetings

Well hello again!

Today I wanted to make a card using the colours for the Just Add Ink Challenge

Why not head on over to their blog and check out the Designers awesome creations

I decided I wanted to make a man's card which can be quite difficult sometimes.
On this card I have used the Guy Greetings stamp set, listed below will be a full list of products used.
This is an Upright Z Fold

Measurements for base: 11 inch x 4 1/4 inch, with the 11"running at the top of your score board score at 5 1/2. Turn cardstock over and align the 11" at the top at the 1/4" mark an score at 3"

Back piece measurements:
One 5 1/4 x 4" Crumb Cake C/S
One 5" x 3 3/4" DSP

Front piece measurements:
One 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" Bermuda Bay C/S
One 4 1/4" x 3" Smoky Slate C/S
One 4" x 2 3/4" Whisper White C/S
Adhere the Bermuda Bay piece to the lower fold with Fast Fuse
Once you have stamped images onto your piece of Whisper White adhere to piece of Smoky Slate. Then using dimensionals adhere to the piece of Bermuda Bay so as to leave a gap to allow for the circle to go between the pieces.

Punch 2 pieces of Blackberry Bliss C/S using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and adhere together using Tombow. This will make it a little stronger. Attach at the very top of the backing piece with a Brad or Eyelet.
Stamp your sentiment onto Vellum an adhere around the lower part of Z fold.

I hope you like this card
