King of the Grill!--PP248

June 7, 2015

Wow!  Another week has flown by!  It is time for a fun challenge at The Paper Players!  We were blown away by all the stunning entries last week with our Tic-Tac-Toe board and can't wait to see what you create for our theme challenge!  

This week the lovely Joanne wants us to create "masculine" cards!  It is just in time for Father's Day, too!  

My card was created using a new stamp set that I bought from Your Next Stamp--For the Boys.  This set has so many "guy" options!  I just love it! I stamped the grill image on Neenah white card stock with black Momento ink.  I colored it with Copic Markers.  After I colored it, I cut it out with the matching die.

The base card is Night of Navy. (5 1/2 X 4 1/4)  I got the top layer with a rectangle stitch die with paper from a Murphy's Square Paper Pack I found at Hobby Lobby.  It is full of great papers for masculine cards.  I cut a few Night of Navy rectangles and added different patterns from the same pack on top of it.
I cut a circle from Natural White card stock to adhere the grill to an popped it up with dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment "King of the Grill" with black ink on a small rectangle.  I added Night of Navy candy dots for my embellishment.
