I created this masculine congratulations card with the Sale-a-bration set Sprinkled Expressions. This color combo and layout were inspired by samples in the Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog.
I like the color on color here with the stars stamped in Not Quite Navy ink on Not Quite Navy card stock and then layered on a larger square of the same color. Dimensionals to elevate the stamped cardstock makes this layering work! (Dimensionals are double-sided adhesive foam dots.) Also, “You did it!” is used for the background and the focal point.
When punching out the focal point, remember to stamp first and then turn your punch over so you can see the placement of your stamping in the punch ‘window’. This makes for accurate stamping every time. And Paper Snips, Stampin’ Up!’s thin-bladed scissors, make it really easy to cut out the highlighted words.
