True Gentleman, Truly Tailored, Masculine Card, 2018 Occasions Catalog

Okay, one more card from the "Truly Tailored" set and I'm moving on to something else  I'm not quite sure what but I'm sure it will be something fun!

This was a pretty simple card to make.  The Decorative Series Paper (DSP) from the "True Gentleman" 12" x 12" pack pretty much carries the card.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Tranquil Tide.  That's a color I don't use very often.  Thanks to the color being in the design of the DSP it made it an easy choice.  I could have gone with Chocolate Chip but I thought it would be too dark.

On top of the card base is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla. I scored it every 1/2".  I liked that look on the top. It needed something up there and this worked well.  

The DSP was cut 2-1/2" x 4".  I taped that on the bottom of the Very Vanilla piece.  Before I taped it to the card base, I taped some of the new Night of Navy corduroy ribbon.  See, now I do need to make more masculine cards. The spool is barely touched!!! 

I used the "Starburst" punch and punched out a Crumb Cake piece.  I stamped the "To a Classy Kind of Guy" image on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock and I punched it out with the new "Tailored" punch.  I taped the word piece on top of the "Starburst" piece and I used Dimensionals to set them in place.  But make sure you don't put the Dimensionals where the ribbon is. It makes the piece lay funny. I think the ribbon is too thick.  I wasn't paying attention, mostly because I didn't think I needed to and that is how I figured out you should avoid the ribbon with the Dimensionals. So, now you know!!!

This would be a great masculine birthday or father's day card.

This was a very easy and fun card to make.  I LOVE this layout and I have used it in past cards. It's pretty universal and versatile!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
