Rockin' card

How about a rockin' card today? I love this X-treme stamp set because I have two teenage boys and it really shows a lot of their favorite things (my boys are into the arts, not sports so it's been hard to find stamps that fit them). I used the Wings paper and some neat corduroy brads.

This is a different sized card. Cut your paper as follows:

4 1/2 by 9 colonial white cardstock, fold in half for card base
4 1/2 by 4 1/2 vineyard berry cardstock
4 1/4 by 4 1/4 juniper cardstock
2 by 4 1/2 pattern paper
1 1/2 by 4 1/2 black cardstock
3 by 2 colonial white cardstock
3 1/2 by 2 1/2 vineyard berry cardstock
You'll also need a second piece of vineyard berry cardstock to stamp on.

Distress all with black ink. Using your trimmer and dry embossing tool, make lines in the juniper paper and sand to reveal white core. Attach to vineyard berry card front.

Glue pattern paper about a 1/4 inch from bottom of the card.

Glue black cardstock strip across the center of the pattern paper.

Attach vineyard berry cardstock frame onto right hand side of card about 1/4 inch from right hand side of card, 1/2 inch from the bottom of the card.

On the vineyard berry scrap paper stamp the guy with the guitar using black ink. Carefully cut out the stamped image.

Glue the stamped image onto the white cardstock. Stamp the word Rockin' in black ink and then use your wiry sponge tool to add little black specks all over piece.

Attach that piece to the center of the vineyard berry frame.

Add two corduroy brads in the open space to the left of the stamped image. Attach whole card front to card base and you're done! If you'd like to make this card this weekend you can attend my card class tomorrow, March 6th in Stevensville from 2 to 4:30.
