Dapper Dad

March 2, 2013

I was inspired by a suite of cards I saw on Pinterest to create this one using the Dapper Dad stamp set.

033I started by cutting the collar shape onto a 10cm x 14.3cm piece of Bashful Blue card.  Once I had done my cutting, I embossed the card using the Stripes Embossing Folder.  Next I took a strip of Whisper White card and punched both long edges with the Scallop Border Punch.  I also embossed using one of the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folders.   I attached this strip to the embossed Bashful Blue card and added a dimension under each “collar” piece to hold it in place.  This piece was then attached to Whisper White card and then to scored and folded Night of Navy card.   I embossed a piece of Night of Navy card with the Stripes Embossing Folder, so that the stripes run across the card when attached over the bottom of the Bashful Blue card.   I stamped the tie from the Dapper Dad stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink and cut it out.  I attached it to the card front using a Glue Dot in the middle and a dimensional under each side.  I cut four buttons using the Buttons #5 Sizzlit from Bashful Blue card.  I pushed out the buttonholes and attached three 1/2″ Circles of the same colour to the back of each button to give it some dimension.  I pushed the buttonholes through the stacked card and then added a little Whisper White Bakers Twine which I held in place using a Glue Dot.  I attached the buttons to the card front using Glue Dots.  Lastly I stamped “happy birthday” from the Bring on the Cake Stamp set onto Whisper White card and attached it to the card front.

I really love the way this has turned out.  It’s a fun concept to play with.  Let me know what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.
