Lookin’ Sharp!

Hello and welcome to today’s card featuring the True Gentleman Suite! Since the last two days featured Manly Moments from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit and this upcoming Saturday is Stamp It Groups Father’s Day Blog Hop, I’m going to keep the theme of Father’s Day and Masculine Cards going! Today we are going to create a quick and simple card that is great if you are pressed for time or would like to make multiples of!

The card base is Tranquil Tide cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The base layer is from the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, and punch out using the Tailored Tag Punch. Cut a piece of 2” x 2” Night of Navy cardstock to layer the sentiment on:

Cut a piece of Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon long enough to go across the middle and adhere to the back of the DSP:

 

Adhere the base layer to the card base:

After adhering the punched sentiment to the 2” x 2” cardstock, use dimensionals to adhere across the ribbon:

After I did this, I felt like the card needed a little something more, so I used some Linen Thread on two buttons from the True Gentleman Buttons and adhered those with glue dots:

For the inside sentiment on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Very Vanilla cardstock, it is stamped in Tranquil Tide ink and then I used my Stamparatus for the images along the bottom in Night of Navy ink:

This is a fun and easy card to make that is great for anyone and any occasion!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
