A Good Man

June 17, 2019

I am not one who easily creates male themed cards but there is a stamp set in the new catalogue designed for males which makes it very easy.  The two cards I am sharing today use basically the same products and I love the way both cards turned out.

To create the first one, I stamped the image from the A Good Man stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Sof Suede, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends. I cut out the image using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I also cut a Rectangle Stitched Die from Night of Navy card.  I embossed a piece of Old Olive card using the Curls and Swirls Embossing Folder.  I stamped the greeting from the A Good Man stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.  Then I assembled the rest of the pieces,  I attached the right hand side of the stamped Whisper White rectangle to the right hand side of the Night of Navy stitched rectangle, then I slipped the Night of Navy Rectangle under the embossed card and the stamped Whisper White rectangle over the embossed card, using the stamped Whisper White card as a quide.   Once positioned, I added more adhesive to the panels to attach them to the card front.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Night of Navy card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed a strip of Old Olive card using the Curls and Swirls Embossing Folder and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.

For the second card, I stamped the image onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it using the Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  The image is cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I also cut a rectangle from Night of Navy card using the same dies. I embossed a piece of Old Olive card using the Curls and Swirls Embossing Folder.  I also punched a narrow strip of Night of Navy card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.  To assemble the card front, I attached the punched strip behind the top edge of the embossed Old Olive card.  I attached the panel to Whisper White card using adhesive across the bottom of the panel and on the right and left sides but not behind the punched edge.  I attached the stamped Whisper White Rectangle to the top of the Night of Navy Rectangle. I added more adhesive to the panels and slipped the Night of Navy Rectangle behind the embossed card to attach it to the Whisper White card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Night of Navy card.

To decorate the inside of this card, I stamped the greeting from the A Good Man stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.

These are relatively simple cards to create but I love how they turned out.  I am sure this stamp set is going to be a real favourite, not only with me, but with you also.

And don’t they look great together.  There is another stamp in this set and I think you could create a great gift set of cards with this stamp set.  I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
