July Hostess Club Project

I am truly aware that we don't make near enough men's cards in my classes so I decided that caseing this one from the catalog would be a wonderful idea. The inspiration I started with can be found on page 83 of the 2015/2016 Annual Idea Book & Catalog.

As you can see from the inspiration, they used Crumb Cake Cardstock for the base, but because I wanted to use the new Corrugate Paper, I decided to start with a Basic Black Cardstock base instead. I don't know what Stampin' Up!'s concept artists used to make the splatters on the card. If they didn't use a stamp it's possible they used an aqua painter, picked up some ink and then flicked it on to the card. You can get the same effect by using a toothbrush.

Stampin' Up!'s version uses:
  • Travler Stamp Set 
  • One Big Meaning Stamp Set
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock & Ink Pad
  • Basic Black Cardstock & Ink Pad
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Whisper White Baker's Twine

My Version uses:
  • Traveler Stamp Set
  • Guy Greeting Stamp Set
  • Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set
  • Basic Black Cardstock & Ink Pad
  • Crumb Cake Corrugate Paper
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Soft Suede Cardstock for the envelope
  • Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper - for the envelope liner. I know it doesn't look like it because the stripes aren't at an angle but it is, trust me.
  • Envelope Punch Board - Because this card is not a standard size, it's actually 4.25"x4.25".
  • Dimensionals, of course.
