Welcome to another Cardz 4 Guyz challenge! Dawn chose “shades of blue” for the theme for #276. I hope you will pop over to the C4G blog to see what the rest of the design team created as well!

Here’s my card:

This card falls into the easy-peasy category when using the Stamparatus. I can’t imagine trying to do this card without that tool.


  • The Night of Navy base of the card started out measuring 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • Next, I trimmed off 1-1/4 inches from the top, outside part of the card.
  • The white cardstock on the front measures 5-3/8 inches by 2-7/8 inches.
  • The white cardstock on the inside panel measures 4-1/8 inches by 5-3//8 inches.
  • The DSP panel for the inside of the card measures 4-1/8 inches by 1-1/2 inches.
  • I also trimmed a piece of the DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. Since I have a tendency to put the envelope DSP pieces away, I adhered it to the envelope flap as soon as I trimmed it down.
  • At the same time, I punched a 1 inch circle of coordinating DSP and ran it through my XYRON create-a-sticker machine for the envelope seal.

Stamparatus for the Win!

  • I used the Biggest Wish photopolymer stamp set from the annual catalog for the sentiment words.
  • First, I used a piece of printer paper trimmed to the same size as the white cardstock on the front. That way I could make sure that I wouldn’t wind up with half a sentiment. I could also make sure that I had almost the same white space at the top and bottom of the front of the card.
  • Using the second plate of the Stamparatus, I placed “happy” where I wanted it to be stamped, and tried it out on the copy paper. Success! On to the white cardstock!
  • I first stamped all the Balmy Blue “BIRTHDAY” sentiments going down the front of the white cardstock. To accomplish this, I simply moved the Stamparatus plate down one notch and restamped four more times.
  • Then, I stamped the Night of Navy “happy” using the same process of moving the plate down one notch after each stamping.
  • That’s it! The result looks so cool!

Finishing Up:

  • Next, I adhered the DSP panel to the right side of the white cardstock for the inside. At first, I thought I would have the stripes line up vertically. However, the vertical stripes with the horizontal lines of the sentiments did not look good at all together. Once I changed the stripes to horizontal. everything on the front of the card flowed nicely.
  • Since I adhered the DSP first, I was able to pick out a birthday sentiment that would fit on the remaining white panel. I chose “wishing you your BEST year yet” from the Best Year stamp set, also in the annual catalog. I used the Night of Navy ink pad for the inside sentiment.
  • That’s it. This card came together very quickly. It just might become my go-to card layout when I need something fast!

Have a Peachy Day!
