Stampin’ Up! Congratulations

This masculine congratulations card is going out to my son-in-law, who recently graduated from college.   It’s the companion to this feminine congrats card here.  The versatile pack of  Pocketful of Posies Designer Series Paper (retiring May 31st) contains both fabulously feminine patterns and magnificently masculine prints like this one.

The trick to this layered tag is layering the Perfect Punches congratulations on the Baja Breeze Extra-Large Oval created with the ‘happy birthday’ stamp from the same stamp set.

How’d I do that?  Tip: Using the brush end of the Early Espresso marker I colored just the outline of the stamp and stamped on the Baja Breeze, before punching it out with the Extra-Large Oval Punch.

Card Recipe:
Stamp Set: Perfect Punches #117022 wood-mount, #120516 clear-mount
Paper: Pocketful of Posies dsp #122354 (retiring), Baja Breeze card stock #111352, Whisper White card stock #100730, Early Expresso card stock #119686
Ink:  Early Expresso #119670
Extras:  Modern Label Punch #119849, Extra-Large Oval Punch #119859, Jumbo Brads #112533

Enjoy!  Julie
