Guy Greetings Stamp Set meets a Brick Wall TIEF

Hmmm .... Saturday and no rest for the wicked. I still have so much to do in preparation for my open house, and new Catalogue Mailings for 3rd June 
Yes, that is the day the new catalogue goes live.
I have made my (rather long) list of new products I want to add to my craft supply collection, especially the new stamp sets

But for now, I have to be satisfied with the items I was lucky enough to get on Pre-Order (one of the Perks of being a Stampin Up! Demonstrator! he he ... I bet a few of you out there have itchy palms and feeling Well Jell 
(yes, I admit it, I am an Essex Girl through and through he he)

Anyway, today I am sharing a card I made for my Brothers 50th Birthday this coming week (I still have to put the '50' on it though)

Guy Greetings is a fab vintage styled masculine stamp set and is a returning favourite, and I have coupled it with the new Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Now I know that there will be some Demonstrators out there shouting at me that this TIEF wasn't on the pre-order list ... well, we were able to get our hands on the new Embossing Folders at last weekends Stampin Up! Event in Telford. so I ran off this one, and another with butterflies .... hmmm, yes, butterflies!!


So this is a really quick and simple card to make with relatively few products, many of which you not doubt already have in your craft stash.

And here are the products I have used (with the exception of the TIEF)
Simply Click on the Product Icons below to view them in more detail or order them

Table built using Product Table Builder by The Crafty Owl - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

The white card blank is 15cm (6") square
I trimmed the Old Olive Brick Wall Embossed panel to 12.5 x 12.5 cms and distressed the panel using Tip Top Taupe classic ink pad and a sponge dauber.
Next, I stamped the Boxer using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad  onto Whisper White Cardstock, using the T ripple Banner Punch to make the banner
I then made a slightly larger banner using the Triple Banner Punch again, and Blackberry Bliss Cardstock
The two banners were adhered to the cardfront as shown, using Fast Fuse Adhesive.

Then stamp the greeting onto Whisper White Cardstock using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad.
Create banner ends using the Triple Banner Punch.
I took a 0.5cm strip (scrap) of Hello Honey cardstock and used the Banner Punch to create the smaller banner ends by inserting the cardstock in through the smaller Banner Punch and repeat with the opposite end.
I attached this strip to the back of the sentiment label using Fast Fuse Adhesive, applied Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse side and mounted this onto the card front.
I looped wome Linen Threat and secured it with  an Antique Brad 
(I just carefully use my Piercing tool to make the hole)
Finally, Attach the card front, to your card blank.
