A Girl Card From A Guy This Time

Hey Everyone! This is a stamp image by TAC and it is an interesting one. Most images focus on girlfriends giving gifts to another girlfriend but this one is a guy giving a girl a gift. I love it.

At first I was a little confused because I was going to use "masculine" colors and after thinking about it, I realized that a woman is the recipient of this card, not a man although it's a man on the image. Get it?

Anyway. . .just a simple card I made again playing around with my Copic markers. This one came out pretty good. No feathering of the outline. I'm not sure what I did right on this one. It's sort of hit and miss.

My goal today is to work on a few cards. My kids return to school tomorrow therefore the house will be a lot quieter on the weekdays. I'll have more free time to really work on a few projects perhaps even a tutorial. Hope y'all have a great day!!!

Card Recipe:

Stamps: TAC, Verve Visual and MFT (sentiments)
Paper: DCWV Glitter Stack, SU Pixie Pink, Chocolate Chip
Ink: SU Pixie Pink, Copic
Accessories: SU Craft Tool Kit (paper piercer), SU Ticket Corner Punch, Making Memories Square Brads, Hemp cord, Making Memories Ribbon


1. Stamp your image on a 2 3/4" x 4" panel.
2.Color your image with preferred medium; in this case I used Copic Markers.
3. Mat the image on to a SU Pixie Pink cardstock that is 1/8" larger than the panel then again mat on to a Chocolate Chip cardstock 1/8" larger than the Pixie Pink mat
4. Punch 3 holes vertically to top left corner of the panel and attach 3 brads; in this case 3 small square brads
5. Poke holes to the right lower corner using the Crafter's Tool Kit piercing template. Set panel aside
6. Cut a 4 x 5 1/4 designer paper and punch the corners using the SU Ticket Corner punch.
7. Mat on to a SU chocolate chip cardstock 1/8 larger than the designer paper.
8. Punch holes on to the 4 corners and attach a brad to each hole then attach to a Pixie Pink card base
9. Attach a 1" x 4" strip horizontally on to the designer paper.
10. Follow the rest of the sketch as shown.

What a great card! Love the image and the color combinations you used are great. It is wonderful to see all you are doing with your Copic markers. I found a sketch on Lynn's blog I am going to give a try then I am going to work on the one you've posted.
