CELEBRATE IN STYLE

WP_20180517_12_51_22_Pro 1This masculine card is one of my favorites.  It is actually quite simple, using 2 patterns of DSP – True Gentleman and Wood Textures – and the Tailored Tag Punch.  5 tags of each pattern are adhered diagonally on Night of Navy cs to make this eye-catching design.  The completed layer is adhered to an Early Espresso card. The sentiment  from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set is stamped in Navy on Tip Top Taupe (retired) and adhered with dimensionals over one of the punches.  Two True Gentleman buttons are “sewed” on with linen thread.

WP_20180517_15_20_40_Pro 1The second sample card uses a “rougher” looking  Wood Texture pattern.  A linen thread bow is tied on to the lower button. 

You’ve seen 3 of our 4 masculine cards.  The last card – Dapper Day – will be posted tomorrow – Monday May 21st.  I want to do a sample with a different DSP pattern so that folks can have a choice. 

As a reminder, June Stamp Camp is Thursday May 31 from 1 – 7 pm, Friday June 1 from 2 – 7 pm, and Saturday June 2 from 9 am – 4 pm.  It is helpful if you can let me know which day you might be coming.  Check back tomorrow for Dapper Day.

TRULY TAILORED in PLAID

WP_20180517_12_49_40_Pro 1This is one of those cards that really holds your interest as you take in all the parts and pieces.  Crushed Curry is added to the Night of Navy and Tranquil Tide color scheme.  Two patterns of the True Gentleman DSP are used.  The navy corduroy ribbon adds texture.  Two of the True Gentleman buttons are used with a linen thread bow tied to the larger button.  The bow is, of course, optional. The idea for this masculine card was cased from SU Demonstrator Mary Deatherage.  I did make 3 changes.  First, I put the plaid on the top, I cut the diagonal at an angle that matched the print on the bottom piece of DSP, and I added a second button.  This is not a difficult card and one you can complete at home once your sentiment is stamped and punched.  I love the Tailored Tag Punch.  It’s classy with clean lines.  Word has it we may see more use of this punch in the upcoming catalog.

The retired list is available for your perusal at Retiring Products   This is a good time to pick up some of your favorites at a discount.

Two more masculine creations coming.  Check back soon!
