How To Make A Grungy Masculine Card With ScraPerfect

Hi all! Tracy here today with a messy, grungy, masculine card. I had so much fun getting messy with this one. This card is for my baby brother who is turning the big 50 this year.

ScraPerfect Products Used

To start I used a stencil and some modeling paste to prepare the background of the card and let that dry.

Once dry I applied a very thin layer of the Best Glue Ever using a sponge brush. I let some of the glue seep between the raised surfaces as I wanted to make this look really grungy.

I waited until the glue was tacky and then laid one of the Transfer Foils on top and burnished it with my finger. I didn't want to cover everything with the foil so I just did it randomly. This is how it came out.

Since it was still a little tacky where I hadn't used any of the Transfer Foils, I took the Perfect Crafting Pouch and tapped it all over the top. 

Then  I used the Perfect Cleaning Cloth to clean up all the powder left from the pouch. Here's a photo that shows one side before using the Perfect Cleaning Cloth  and the other side after.

I then used a stencil and some red ink to add the circles in the right top corner and lines along the bottom edge. I die cut everything else using my Cricut and Cuttlebug and then assembled it all on a black base. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I like the play on words and how a motorcycle is climbing over the hill "red circle...showing if he's still riding bikes, he's not really old. Ah, to be 50 again.... I also like the textures and how the red circle and black grunge of the background is repeated in the very precise red circle and black bike of the fore-ground focus.
