Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools Birthday Card

Good Morning! I love the new Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools cling stamp set – it reminds me of the old tools that my Husband’s father left to him! It’s a great set for making masculine cards, especially for the handyman or wannabe handyman. I paired it with a rustic print in the pretty new Texture Chic specialty designer series paper for today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Texture Chic specialty designer series paper to a Basic Black mat with liquid glue and adhered it to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the tools from the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on a Sahara Sand panel. I colored the tools with the light Gray Granite and light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut the tools out with my paper snips. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on another Sahara Sand panel.

I adhered the fussy cut tools to the panel with liquid glue and stamped some vintage tacks over the screwdriver in Memento Tuxedo Black. I finished the panel with three rustic dots and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the card front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel. I stamped some more tacks in Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Evening Evergreen. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Texture Chic specialty DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I could also stamp the tools directly on the cardstock and color it, but it gives the card front a little dimension and texture. The panel of Texture Chic DSP reminded me antique boards, so I thought it would go well with the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools stamp set.
