Truly Tailored, Guy Greetings, Rose Wonder, Masculine Card, Father's Day Card

I wanted to play with the "Truly Tailored" set a few more times before it is retired.  I thought it was a fun set and a great guy set, but it will not be found in the new 2018-2019 catalog.  It makes me sad because there are not very many masculine sets as it is and this one was quick and easy to whip up cards with.  So I need to play with it a bit more in the next month plus.

This card was found on Pinterest.  I added the greetings to it and I changed the wording in the upper part as well. 

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Night of Navy card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White, which should have been Very Vanilla.  On top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Tranquil Tide.  I scored that piece every 1/4". 

I took some scrap pieces of the "True Gentleman" Decorative Series Paper (DSP) and cut them into 2", 1-1/2" and 1" strips.  I didn't measure how long they were but they do need to be at least 5" long.  My middle piece was not long enough and you can't see the ribbon cut on the end.  But it's still nice looking and I'm thinking that had I not said anything, you would not have noticed!!! LOL  I taped those strips in place on the scored piece and then I trimmed them across the top.

Next I stamped the "to a classy kind of guy"image from the "Truly Tailored" set using Night of Navy ink. I fussy cut around the image closer to the inked lines.  I did that because I wanted the Night of Navy card stock layer to show.  I stamped and fussy cut a bow tie using Tranquil Tide ink.  I set it in place with cut pieces of Dimensionals.  I used my Night of Navy marker on the center of the bow tie.
I took an 8" piece of the corduroy ribbon and taped it in place on the card.  I set the word piece over it using Dimensionals. I added the Dimensionals to the ends and left the center open, I didn't want them stuck to the ribbon.

The "Happy Father's Day" is from the soon to be retiring "Guy Greetings" set. I stamped them in Night of Navy and die cut them using the die from the "Rose Wonder" bundle.  I sponged the edges and set them in place using Dimenisonals. 

I taped all the layers together and I added a piece of Very Vanilla on the inside for writing on and the card was done. It was a pretty simple card to make, even with the fussy cutting!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
