Today I thought it was time for another masculine project. It’s a simple idea using just Night of Navy and white. The Clubhouse Stamp Set, Golf Club Dies and Country Club Designer Series Paper (DSP) are all retiring, but are still available while stocks last. It’s a fairly simple layout but check out the idea for getting extra dimension on delicate die cuts.
I began with the golfer image from the Clubhouse Stamp Set and stamped him onto Thick Whisper White Card.
Then I stamped the small golf flag image in the bottom right corner on the front of a Whisper White Medium Envelope.
To line the inside of my card I cut a layer of Whisper White Card. Then I stamped the golf flag in the bottom right corner to match the envelope. In the centre of the layer I stamped the sentiment, “I hope the next year is full of green fairways, blue skies & short putts”.
Finally I stamped the simple “Happy birthday” sentiment onto a 1/4″ strip of Whisper White Card.
GOLF CLUB DIES
With all the stamping done it was time to pull out the coordinating Golf Club Dies. First I die-cut the golfer image. This was really simple as there’s a channel in the die to check the shaft of the golf club is positioned correctly.
Then I cut three more pieces of Thick Whisper White Card using the golfer image.
Now all I needed was to cut a piece of the golf bag design from the Country Club DSP pack and I was ready to start putting it all together.
Using my Paper Trimmer I cut and scored a piece of Night of Navy Card. Then I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder to create the card base.
Then using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I fixed the Whisper White layer on the inside.
On the front of the card I started with the golf bag DSP, then I added a 1/8″ strip of Whisper White Card along the edge.
I wanted my golfer to be really prominent but the very narrow golf club wasn’t really suited to being mounted on Stampin’ Dimensionals. This is where the extra white golfer die-cuts came in. Using liquid glue I fixed the three die-cuts on top of each other before adding the stamped golfer on the top. Then I attached the golfer to the front of the card.
That just left the sentiment. For this I used a couple of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals under the centre and right-hand end. The left end of the sentiment strip was fixed directly onto the golfer with liquid glue. Job done.
