Birthday Suit

March 9, 2021

Today’s card uses the Hansomely Suited stamp set and the Suit & Tie Dies. I have wanted to try making a card where the coat pieces overlap and finally got it done. I cut the pieces for the suit and tie from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper using the Suit and Tie Dies. I cut the suit coat pieces in half at the end of the “v”. I attached the collar panel to one side and on the second side, I added the edging strip before attaching the collar piece. I attached the shirt collar piece to a Basic White layer making sure to attach the tie underneath.

I attached the smaller piece of the “jacket” to the card front and attached the second piece so that it sits over the first piece. I attached the small decorative topper to the pocket. I attached the second shirt collar piece (which is folded to look like a handkerchief) behind the pocket before attaching it to the card front. I cut Basic Gray card using the button die from the Suite & Tie Dies and attached three buttons to the coat. I cut my card base from Basic Gray card and scored and folded it to create an easel card base before attaching the suit piece. I stamped “a happy birthday to you” from the Handsomely Suited stamp set onto Basic White card using Basic Gray ink. I punched the stamped panel using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I punched both ends of Basic Gray card using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and attached the greeting. The whole piece is attached to the bottom of Basic White card using dimensionals before attaching the panel inside the easel card base.

I am rather happy with the way this card turned out. What do you think?

Bye for now,
