DAPPER DAY

Daughter Debbie makes cards with a Stampin’ Up demonstrator in Hampshire, IL.  She showed me a cute card she made and I thought, this could be made into a simple masculine card.  And so, Dapper Day was created.

WP_20180517_12_46_19_Pro 1The measurements of this fun fold card are a teensy bit different.  We start with 7 1/2 X 5 1/2 Tranquil Tide and score at 4 1/4.  A piece of True Gentleman DSP cut to 5 1/4 X 3 is adhered to the card front.  The band that wraps from front to back is 5 1/2 X 1 1/2 Tranquil Tide and is scored at 1”.  The un-scored end is punched with the banner triple punch to give the sharp banner end.  The 1” scored end is adhered to the back side of the card.  The Very Vanilla sentiment from the Truly Tailored set is stamped in Night of Navy and die cut with the 2 3/8 circle framelit.  This circle is layered on to a 2 1/2 Night of Navy scallop circle and adhered to the Tranquil Tide band.  Finally, a True Gentleman button is “sewed” to the sentiment circle with linen or metallic thread.

WP_20180521_15_37_10_Pro 1True Gentleman DSP has some very nice patterns so you can have your choice of 3.  The sample has a print of lines.  The second sample to the right has a diamond pattern.  The sample below has a plaid pattern.  You can choose any of the 3 as long as the designer paper lasts.  The Tranquil Tide card base remains the same for all 3 patterns.

So you have now seen all 4 manly creations for June Stamp Camp which will be held Thursday May 31 from 1 – 7 pm, Friday June 1 from 2 – 7 pm, and Saturday June 2 from 9 am – 4 pm.  I am waiting for the new catalogs to arrive so you can pick yours up (free) at the June Stamp Camp.  I know many SU demonstrators charge for the catalogs but I am choose not to. 

This is the last regular stamp camp until August 2, 3 and 4.  We are currently scheduled for Christmas in July on July 19 and July 21.  This is tentative and I will keep you posted. I will also keep you posted on any specials/sales Stampin’Up might have.  The winter Occasions Catalog will be coming out this summer.  I’m excited to see what our holiday choices will be.

Wishing you a great summer!
