Another Year Older

2/6/23 Top Sprout at A Place To Start!
2/3/23 Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Hey everybody! Happy Friday – I hope you’ve had a great week! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our Basis Gray, Dolphin Gray and Pop Tone Black Licorice which I paired with some Echo Park double-sided paper in my stash! This is one of my most favorite stamp sets because it always makes an awesome masculine card! Plus it’s a tunnel card with a pop-up sentiment on the inside! I’ve made quite a few tunnel cards over the years but have never made one quite like this, and it was rather fun!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base and small rectangular panel from Basis Gray cardstock. I ran the smaller panel through the Big Shot with a Darice Diamond Plate embossing folder. I stamped the motorcycle on a scrap piece of Dolphin Gray cardstock, cut it with the coordinating die, and layered it on three additional die cuts for dimension. I stamped the sentiment from The Project Bin Wild Thing stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added several Darice tiny gray gemstones.

The inside consists of two layering panels. Using my Fiskars 12″ SureCut paper trimmer, I cut two horizontal lines into the Dolphin Gray layer to create the pop-up mechanism. I stamped another sentiment from the same Wild Thing stamp set in black ink, trimmed it and layered it, then adhered it to the left side of the pop-up mechanism. I die cut a circle into the Echo Park plaid paper and a slightly smaller circle into a square piece of Pop Tone Black Licorice which I adhered behind the aperture in the plaid paper, leaving a small border visible. The final step for the inside was adhering the plaid panel in place, making sure the sentiment flap was through the aperture before applying adhesive.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
