We're Still Celebrating!

Yep, here are VLVS we're celebrating the entire month of January!
And if you know me, you know I love a part-tay!!

My card today is a title risqué, so if you don't swing that way, please avert your eyes! 

This card used some scrap papers, which made me very happy.
And it includes a nekkid man, which makes me happy.

So are ya ready?
On with the show....

Card Base
Patterned Papers
Craft Paper Scraps
Foam Tape/Pop Dots
Markers to Color your Nekkid Man (I used Stampin Up markers)
Black Ink (I used Memories by Stewart Superior)
Circle Punch
Scissors (my go-to for precision cutting are Cutter Bees)
Swirl Die Cut (mine is cut from craft paper with a Sizzix die)
Paper Trimmer
Distress Ink- Black Soot, Vintage Photo
Inking Handle
Stipple Brush
Blue & Green Inks
Spellbinder's Dies and Die Cut Machine
Baker's Twine

Here's your man:
I mean, seriously, how can you not love him!
Anyone else think he looks like Super Man?

OK, first things first -
Fold a card base.
Stamp your man using black ink on white card stock twice.
Use the circle punch and punch out his head from one of the stamped images.
Set aside.
 Cover the card front with patterned paper. 
This paper is old Sassafrass, and already had the scalloped border on it!
Ink up the edges with Vintage Photo.
 Die cut a couple of nested shapes using the Spellbinder's dies. 
Ink all edges with Vintage Photo. 
Add a strip of patterned paper to the center of the die cuts.
Adhere to center of card using Miracle Tape.
 Die cut a swirl out of craft paper and ink edges with Vintage Photo.
Add to card front.
Ink edges of punched circle using Vintage Photo,
and place in center of die cuts using a pop dot.

 Cut a white panel of card stock to go inside card, and stamp your man using black ink.
Color with markers- I cheat and color just the edge areas, because most of this will be covered up!
Mount this onto a card stock panel and place inside card towards the top.

 Color your stamped image that you stamped earlier using markers.
Fussy cut...
Note- I DID NOT cut out the candles at the edges. 

 Add some patterned paper strips inside the card (NO NEKKID INSIDES!)-
 be sure to ink all the edges with Vintage Photo first!
Stamp the sentiment onto craft paper using black ink. 
Trim around it, ink with Vintage Photo, and add to the card.
Use a Stipple Brush and add some color around your man- I used blue and green.

Put pop dots or foam tape on the back of your cut out image.
Place the cut out image over the image in the card.

 Add Stickles to the hearts and candles.
I used Fruit Punch on the hearts and candles, Yellow on the outside part of the flames,
Orange on the inside part of the flames, and a little Crystal in the man's hair.
 Awwww yeah!

 Side view.

 Add some Tangerine Stickles around the edge of the circle with the man in it.
Add some Crystal Stickles to his hair and to the flourish.
Put the brad through the flower and put some Baker's Twine behind it.
Adhere with Miracle Tape.
