Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
How are you doing today? I hope all is well with you. Thank you for the kind comments to yesterday’s post, I am truly grateful for all of the amazing people I have met through my stamping and have supported me by choosing me as their demonstrator ❤ Thank You!
Today I want to share one of the cards that my retreat attendee’s got to make. Our theme for retreat was “Caring Cards” … cards to convey our feelings for others, support, gratitude, sympathy and more. In that mix I thought I needed to add a little testosterone so I created a card from the “True Gentleman” product suite …. You can find it on pages 44 & 45 of the Occasions Catalog!
This is really a simple card to make but with the double fold it looks like it would be more difficult, not so … it’s just a smaller card tucked inside the regular size card and they open in opposite directions!!
My card base is Night of Navy and is adorned with the “True Gentleman” Designer Series Paper. This paper is so much fun … it has playful patterns and some great neutrals that will compliment the playful papers or stand alone! I chose the bow ties and glasses pattern paper to play off the “Lookin’ Sharp” sentiment from the “Truly Tailored” stamp set.
The coordinating punch was used to punch out the greeting and the mat of Tranquil Tide behind the greeting. I cut the Tranquil Tide in half and aligned it with the greeting to show a bold background!
I really wanted to highlight the greeting so I embossed the background using the “Simple Stripes” Textured Embossing Folder. You can find that on page 5 of the Occasions Catalog with the Picture Perfect Party Suite. I couldn’t resist adding one of the cute buttons from the “True Gentleman” Buttons … he is looking “sharp” you know! lol
Had to address the inside of the card as well …
And it was very easy to do with the sentiments included in the set. This is a great stamp set for Fathers Day which is right around the corner … However, this is also on the DISCONTINUED LIST, so if you like it, don’t delay … get your order in before the end of May (the sooner the better) stamp sets are only guaranteed till mid May.
Thank you for checking in on me today, and don’t forget to stop back tomorrow… I’ll keep sharing snapshot from our stamping retreat.
Have a “Dapper Day”!!
