For the last day in July, I’m sharing a masculine birthday card, created with the Game On Stamp Set. Wouldn’t this be a great card for a chess player, or a guy who appreciates “play on words?” Keep scrolling to see my instructions, and you’ll find my supplies in the Product List below.

Today’s Step-by-Step Instructions:

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp in Real Red Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, a little larger than the stamp. Use your Stamparatus to get good ink coverage. Trim the Buffalo Check to 4″ X 5 1/4″, making sure the lines are straight, and adhere the layer to the card base.

Stamp the chess pieces from the Game On Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Use a Layering Squares Die for cutting, and one a size larger for cutting the Basic Black Cardstock border. Attach this to the card front with Dimensionals.


Stamp “Hope your day is all fun & games” in Memento Black Ink, cut with an Ornate Frames Die, and attach with Dimensionals.
