Celebrate in Style, Dad – True Gentleman Suite

Another fun card from the True Gentleman Suite from Stampin’ Up!. Celebrate in Style, Dad!

Celebrate in Style

My Dad’s birthday is today and this is the card I sent him! I’m sure he appreciates my handmade efforts. I really love the simple and masculine style this True Gentleman Suite lends itself to. The card was quick and easy but I had to “edit” a stamp! (You will see what I mean below!)

I used Night of Navy for the base of this card. It coincides with the really cool Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon that I am loving right now.

The stamp set in the suite is called Truly Tailored. Right now you can get the stamp set with the Tailored Tag Punch for 10% off. I used the punch for “Dad”.

When you look at the stamp set you will see the “Today is your day celebrate in style” stamp. I really wanted it separate – The “Today is your Day” part on top and the “Celebrate in Style” part on the bottom. So…I cut the stamp. Ahh – Don’t freak out! If you aren’t comfortable doing that, you can mask one side. But I really like it separate and think I will use it more that way.

As you can see, I even cut the little line out!

For the “Dad” – I stamped “Dad’ on Very Vanilla then cut it out. I punched a sheet of DSP and adhered it to that piece for a border.

Those were about the only two complicated things I did. I think it is beautiful and elegant. I’m sure my Dad will love it!
