Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I made a masculine birthday card with the new Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan stamp set, but no it’s not a sports theme card. I used the strong, bold sentiments from the stamp set with the retiring In Good Taste designer series paper for a simple masculine card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was inspired by the fun sketch challenge on Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #549:

I used the Banner Pick a Punch to cut the ends of several scrap strips of the In Good Taste DSP. It felt good to put them to use and the mixture of wood grains and stones go together well. Select varying widths and lengths. I adhered them to a panel of the DSP that looked like a painting canvas, varying the lengths and I trimmed the tops off after the strips were adhered to get a clean edge on top. I adhered the DSP to a Soft Suede mat.

I wrapped the DSP panel with a length of Gray Granite shimmer ribbon, securing it in the back with tape and adhered the panel to the front of a Gray Granite card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede on a wood grain panel of In Good Taste DSP and cut it out with the small label die from the Harvest dies. I cut another panel of Soft Suede with the die and adhered the DSP to the top. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and finished it with a Brushed Metallic Dot.

For the inside of the card, I decided to use the In Good Taste DSP for my writing panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan stamp set in Soft Suede ink and adhered strips of punched DSP to the side. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The In Good Taste DSP is perfect for masculine cards, just like the bold font in the Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan stamp set. The natural tones also work well to contrast with florals for feminine cards, so overall it’s a great pack! It’s a great value with a 40% discount during the Last Chance Products sale.
