Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Classic Garage

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin; Up! Classic Garage:

Here is the recipe:

Card base Basic Black 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Classic Garage DSP 5-1/4 x 4

Top panel: Classic Garage DSP 5-1/8 x 3-7/8

Strips: Classic Garage and Basic Black,   long one is Black:  4-3/8 x 5/8, shorter one are Classic Garage: 4 x 5/8 and 3-1/2 x 1/2

Here are the details:

I let the Designer Series paper do all the work on this masculine card today.  With all the great paper in this pack you could make a dozen cards just like this and they would all look different.  I do hope you will try a few!

The Art Piece

  • Cut out a Circle from the Stitched Shapes framelit in Whisper White card stock
  • Stamp your Sentiment on Tuxedo Black Ink onto the top of the circle using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set

More details:

  • Adhere your Classic Garage DSP panel to the Black card front
  • Adhere the smaller Classic Garage DSP panel on top of the first DSP panel
  • Adhere your art piece to the right side of the card front
  • Adhere your DSP strips over the art piece
  • Finish off the card by adding Black Cord loop
  • Add a double Linen Bow to the center of the loop
  • Adhere a key from the Classic Garage Metal Element to the Linen Thread bow

Here is my card inspiration:
