A RaceCar Birthday

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

We have a brand new release of Just For Guys dies in the online store, and they are currently 25% off.  There are 14 new designs and they are ideal for Father's Day cards, guy stuff or car buffs. They all have a retro and classic look. The design team has begun to show samples using the new dies. So if you haven't seen them, take a look back on the Blog for some great ideas.

For my card today, I am featuring the new Racecars & Flags + the Build-A-Sign dies.  Masculine cards are made so easy using these new dies. I needed a birthday card for a nephew who is a big Nascar racing fan. Let's get started with some details on how I created my project.

Step 1: Since I knew what dies I was using this week, I had to decide on my card colors first. I think that stripes always have a nice masculine vibe and red & blue stripes for sure. I found this striped patterned paper in my stash - so red & blue were my colors of choice.
White card base: 5" square
Blue Layer: 4 7/8" square
Patterned Paper: 4 3/4" square
White Image Panel: 3 1/2" square
Step 2: Cut the images from red, blue and white cardstocks. My sign choice was based on the word I was going to stamp on it. Needed something large enough to fit nephew.
Secured them to the white square panel with double sided tape and Ranger multi matte medium. I added the striped gray paper to resemble a road or racetrack.
 Stamped my happy birthday sentiment with denim ink on an angle with the help of my MISTI. The nephew word is also stamped with denim ink.
Step 3: Started card assembly. The image panel is secured with mounting tape and the flags with double sided tape.
Finished my card by attaching to the white card base. I hope I have given you another idea for a way to use the new masculine dies. Here is a link to another card I made using these same dies for Father's Day. See you next Saturday!
