Grungy Birthday Card


Today's card was made for a workmate of Rob's.  A male workmate.  Which meant a male card. Sigh...  They are soooo hard to make.  Thankfully Stampin' Up! has released the Well Worn DSP, which makes male cards a lot easier.  And when you have a great sketch to work with, like the current challenge at Unscripted Sketches, it's even easier!

I wanted to emphasise the grungy look of the DSP and continue it through onto the plain cardstock.  To do this I used one of the 'filler' stamps from the Simply Soft stamp set as a background stamp.  I never would have thought to do this - thanks to Nikki Sadler for the idea!

Just a different angle of the front of the card.  The Motorcycle panel is popped up on Dimensionals.

And the inside of the card.  I carried through the look from the front by using more DSP and stars.

Stamps: Simply Soft, Curly Cute, Motorcycle (retired)
Ink: Cajun Craze, Not Quite Navy
DSP/Cardstock: Well Worn DSP, Cajun Craze, Not Quite Navy, River Rock
Other: Artichoke Denim Ribbon, Small Star Punch (retired), Sponge Dauber, Dimensionals

Catch you later,



  1. A fantastic male card Tina, nothing girly about this one, I love the new dsp too, fantastic choice, should open mine instead of hoarding it lol'

  2. What a nice card and so perfect for a "guy" card. Love how you used the Unscripted sketch for it.
