Well Suited

January 21, 2021

This week on my Facebook Live, I shared some cards I made using the Well Suited Product Suite and today I am going to share a couple more. This is another fantastic Product Suite from the January-June Mini Catalogue. The suite contains a stamp set, dies and twine. The dies are amazing and you can’t have this product suite in your possession without creating a “suit” card! I cut Basic Gray card using the “neckline” die from the Suit & Tie Dies before embossing the card using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I cut one “pocket” from Basic Gray and embossed the pocket using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I cut the “collar” from Basic Gray and embossed it using the same embossing Folder. I cut the little topper for the pocket from Basic Gray but this time, I didn’t emboss. I cut the collar from Basic White card and the pieces for the tie and another collar from Well Suited Designer Series Paper.

I also cut one of the “brace” pieces and buttons from Basic Gray card. To create the card, I attached the Basic White collar to scored and folded Thick Basic White card. I attached the tie piece underneath the collar and then the shirt piece. I attached the brace piece to create a centre button panel and attached two buttons before attaching the embossed collar piece. I attached the designer series paper collar behind the pocket to look like a hankerchief. I added the topper before attaching the pocket to the right hand side of the jacket. Lastly I added the knot for the tie using mini dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the greeting from the Handsomely Suited stamp set onto the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Basic Gray ink. I attached a piece of Basic Gray card behind one long edge of a piece of Well Suited Designer Series Paper and attached it across the bottom of the inside of the card base.

While I was creating this card, I decided to create another card using the reverse side of the Designer Series Paper. I think they both look great, but I do like the striped tie card slightly better. What about you? Which one is your favourite?

Bye for now,

Kris
