Birthday, CASEd with Class, Handmade Cards, Masculine Cards, Technique

You’re Top Shelf Card


We just finished up my “masculine” card class. Why the “s you may ask? Well I called it a masculine card class because the designs and colors were definately not flowery and pink but honestly the person who is going to get this card will be a female. So drink up ladies I like manly drinks like bourbon and I am not afaid to say it!

Feeling a bit tonal you will see that the pieces that stand out are because of the texture they have. Take a look at the close up below.


A special thanks to Dragonfly Paper Crafts who I CASED this design from.

Want to make it yourself? Here are the steps:

  1. Start with Crumb Cake cardstock, cut in half with the Paper Trimmer and fold in half again, burnishing the crease with a bone folder, to make a standard 4 1/4 inch by 5 1/2 inch card base.
  2. With Crumb Cake Ink stamp the glass from the Whiskey Business stamp set. I used an alternating pattern but there are so many options you can choose from.
  3. Next run a 1 1/4 x 4 inch piece of Gold Foil cardstock in the Hammered Metal embossing folder thru your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine and trim the edge with Paper Snips to make a ribbon end.
  4. Apply some Stampin’ Seal adhesive to back and add a coil of Linen Thread to the back of the gold foild piece and adhere the whole piece to the card base.
  5. Cut a strip just a little over 1/2 inch x 3 of Crumb Cake cardstock. Using Versamark, Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and a Heat Tool create the sentiment banner and trim to a ribbon edge. Adhere to the gold foil with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. I like to end with the bling, bring it on with Gilded Gems.
  7. Most importantly, send your card to someone 🙂
