Dapper Day

February 5, 2018

Do you struggle with where to begin when you want to make a card?  Well I do, not all the time but sometimes, so here is what I do.  I either go to my favourite challenge sites and use the sketch challenge or even the colour challenge to begin my creation.  If that doesn’t inspire me then I will go to my Card Sketch Pinterest Board and scroll through my pins until I find something that suits my purpose.  Today I used one of the sketches from my Pinterest Board to create another card featuring the Truly Tailored stamp set and True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.  This time I cut a piece of Tranquil Tide card using the largest square in the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and attached it to Whisper White card.  I embossed the piece using the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder and attached the panel to scored and folded Chocolate Chip card.  I cut a strip of the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper and punched one short end using the Triple Banner Punch before attaching to the left hand side of the card front.  I stamped the greeting from the True Gentleman stamp set onto Whisper White card using Tranquil Tide ink and cut it out using one of the circles from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a narrow strip of Chocolate Chip card behind one long edge of a narrow strip of the same True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.  The panel is attached to the bottom of Whisper White card.

This truly is another clean and simple card but I think they make the best kind of manly card, don’t you.  I’m pretty sure my husband would love this card.  I certainly am loving this great product suite.

Bye for now,
