Dapper Day

Hello and welcome to today’s card featuring the True Gentleman Suite! A few years ago, I made a “Shirt Card” for that I sent out for Father’s Day and I thought today I would make an updated version! This is another great way to have your Designer Series Paper work for you and it is quite simple to make.

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

The base layer is from the True Gentleman DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and then cut again 1” from the top and 1” across, this will make the shirt collar:

The collar is folded down and adhered with glue dots:

The bow is made from the same DSP, using the bow builder punch, and I used glue dots to adhere together:

I cut a ½” x 4” piece of DSP and 4 buttons from the True Gentleman Buttons, Gold Thread is threaded thru the button holes:

The strip of DSP is adhered with Snail and glue dots for the buttons:

The completed shirt is then adhered to the card base:

The inside sentiment is on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and stamped in Night of Navy ink:

On a ½” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the word Dapper in Versamark ink and heat emboss in Copper Embossing Powder. The ends are trimmed with the Banner Triple Punch and then adhered with dimensionals:

This is such a quick and easy card, great for any occasion and making multiples of!

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!
