Birthday Boxers With Lisa

Hi! Lisa here today.  
Sharing a fun clean and simple card using my set I designed for AJVD


Here are a few tips for making this card 

Stamping the sentiment, I used the Fiskars stamp press.  
 I put my sentiments on the table like I would if I were actually stamping then pressed my press to them and they adhere terrifcly.  I love this press because it makes lining up your stamp a breeze. 

Making the heart pattern on the boxers.
I placed the large and small solid hearts at each end of my small acrylic block.  This makes the stamping pressure even with another stamp at the end.  Worked great.  And there was enough space that when I used one, the other did not stamp on my image.  I alternated between the two sizes on my boxers.  

Lastly, I placed dimensional tape on the back of the boxers.
Leaving a border all around.  Then I carefully bent the edges from the front toward the back.
This gives it a more realistic look.  

This card is also for two challenges
If you are like me and sketches intimidate you, this is a simple one to work with. Just my speed. 

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge 
I stamped my hearts on the boxers for this challenge.
