I have been wanting to make a card using this sentiment ever since I first saw the Stampin' Up! Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper. When I saw sketch #230 on the CAS(E) this Sketch! blog everything came together.
Here's the sketch which I followed pretty much exactly! Why mess with perfection?
Get it? I know it is a pretty silly play on words but I like it! Anytime I can come up with a twist on a manly card I will take it. The Pick a Pattern DSP is so very fun to play with. Lots of great designs to mix and match. After a little fiddling around I finally settled on these three patterns. I used the Brushworks Alphabet to stamp out the sentiment. I think it is always good to have at least one alphabet stamp set in your collection, so you can customize your sentiments. I like the Brushworks Alphabet because I like to pretend that I can brush letter.
On the inside of the card I used another strip of the Pick a Pattern DSP and cut out some of the fungi/mushrooms. This is a pretty simple card to make and a great way to use some of your scrap pieces of DSP.
Here are the basic measurement but you can easily change the sizes of the DSP depending on what you have in your DSP stash.
Basic Black card base 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2"
Crushed Curry layer 4" x 5-1/4"
Basic Black layer 3-1/2" x 4-3/4"
Striped DSP 1" x 3-1/4"
Mushroom DSP 2-1/4" x 3-1/4"
Black and White DSP 1-1/4" x 3-1/4"
Whisper White inside of the card 4" x 5-1/4"
DSP strip inside of the card 3/4" x 4"
