Boys And Their Toys Card - Stampin' Up!'s Loads of Love

I don't know about you but I never have enough masculine cards.  Here is one that I CASE'd for a recent workshop that will work well for a number of the men in my life.  I think they all have the thought that "he who dies with the most toys, wins" -- including my husband!  Although his toys are mostly boats instead of ATVs and motorcycles.  Using the Loads of Love and Loads of Fun stamp sets, this is a perfect card for that guy in your life that has lots of toys.
Here's what you will need to make the card:
  • Early Espresso, Baja Breeze & Very Vanilla cardstock
  • Early Espresso ink
  • Watercolor pencils, crayons or chalks for coloring
  • Sponge for aging edges
  • Simpy Scored - I LOVE this new tool!  (Introduced in the current Holiday Mini Catalog)
One hint if you make this card, crinkle the Baja Breeze cardstock into a ball in your hands to "age" it well.  Then run it through the Big Shot to flatten it out well.  Otherwise it will end up being a bit shorter than the other pieces.  Also, when assembling the card.  Attach the Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla to the Early Espresso on the left side only at first.  Use a very strong adhesive.  Fold your card several times and use your bone folder to press the fold well.  Then adhere the center sections and repeat the process of folding and pressing before attaching the right side.
