Welcome to the monthly Across the Waves Blog Hop. This month’s theme is all about Masculine projects. Thanks for joining us. I have the He’s All That Sneak Peek card for you!
I hope you enjoy my project.
The He’s All That Sneak Peek card was inspired by a card I saw from Melva Peters. I changed some of the measurements so I could use fewer different pieces of the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper (DSP).
- Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
- Very Vanilla CS: 2 1/2 x 4 inches for sentiment
- Early Espresso CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches
- Cajun Craze CS: 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
- He’s The Man DSP (available May 3, 2022): Early Espresso design for ribbon: 2 x 3 inches; a variety of pieces- 2 at 2 x 5 inches, 2 at 3 x 5 inches and 2 at 4 x 5 inches.
Assembling the Card
The trick is to cut several different widths of the DSP and then cut each piece on the diagonal. I used 2 inch, 3 inch and 4 inch wide by 5 inches long for the DSP.
Start to piece the card front together using a base for the DSP that measures 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 inches. I made a mark where I wanted to put the sentiment so that I could point the DSP triangles to that spot. Leave about a 1/8 inch space between the different DSP pieces.
The back side is pictured on the left. Use scissors to trim the excess DSP. When you are done the card front will look like the picture on the right.
Adhere the DSP piece to a 4 x 51/4 inch Early Espresso CS. Adhere this to the front of the Very Vanilla CS card base measuring 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches. Use the ribbon die in the All That Die set to cut 2 ribbons from the Early Espresso DSP pattern. Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Very Vanilla CS in Early Espresso Ink. Use the rectangular die in the All That Dies to cut out the sentiment. Adhere the ribbons to the back of the sentiment piece. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front. Add a few of the Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.
Viola! You have a really cool masculine card!
