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