Masculine Cards: Fathers Day & Birthday

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

With Father’s Day creeping up on us quickly, I though it would me nice to share some cards created from the Well Suited Suite which can be found on page 66 and 67 of the Mini Catalog.

The suite includes the Handsomely Suited Stamp set, Suite & Ties Dies … both carried over to the Annual Catalog, and the Well Suited Designer Paper and the Well Suited Twine … both retiring!

Today we are going to begin just using simply; stamps * ink * paper! Isn’t this how the whole “stamping” thing got started? My color pallet will be Night of Navy, Merry Merlot and Basic White … masculine. I started with my base in Night of Navy and my mat in Merry Merlot and my Basic White to stamp on, and I choose the ties!

The greeting was stamped on a piece of scrap that I had lying around and fit it well, and then I added some Night of Navy to mat the greeting.

Next up, I thought I would use the ties again, however I’m introducing the Well Suited Designer Paper and the Suite & Ties Dies …

First, I used a simple yet masculine design from the Well Suited Designer Series paper as my background, and then using 3 other patterns of designer paper … I cut out my ties with the coordinating tie dies! It’s so much fun pick patterns and make your own ties! I felt like I could sew again … LOL!!!

Next up … I’m going all out, it’s time to introduce “A Sharp Dressed Man”!! I picked out two patterns from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper; one that reminded me of tweed and the other is paisley! That is how I started …

Your card base begins as any other; 8-1/2″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″ … fold in half and your ready to dress your card. I took the “tweed” pattern paper and with the coordinating dies, cut out the suit. You get the suit and lapels.

The shirt consists of the White card base and the die cut collar … it is so easy to create. HOWEVER, before you adhere down the suit, you need tuck the tie under the collar and and suit. I just love that paisley tie!! You could add a pocket, buttons and more to dress up your card, the dies have them all.

This will be your last chance to purchase the suite as it retires at the end of the month, so the “bundle” with 10% saving … the Designer paper … and Bakers Twine will be gone. Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for hanging out with me today.
