Truly Tailored, Masculine Card, Retiring Stampin' Up! Set, 2018 Occasions Catalog

It makes me sad to see this set leave.  There's just not enough masculine sets.  And the ones they have don't even compare to the amount of female sets.  This was a fun set to play with and it expires on May 31st.  I pulled all the sets that will be retiring and I plan on playing with them a LOT before they retire.  

I found this card on Terri's display board a month or so ago and I took a photo of it with my phone. (Terri has a new blog) The image has been in my phone and about 100 photos later I thought I would look at what's on my phone.  And there it was.  Well, not quite like this.  The bottom of the original card had some stamped splashes on it and the words "P.S. Happy Birthday".  I thought I would use a retired mustache since I had die cut a couple of extras and put them in the "Truly Tailored" set.  

This card is very easy to make and if you don't have the mustache, you can either add words there, move the circle down further or leave it open.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that I added two pieces of card stock and one piece of Decorative Series Paper (DSP) from the "True Gentleman" paper.  I cut those strips 1-1/4" x 3".  I added a piece of the Night of Navy corduroy ribbon to the bottom of where the strips ended.  I taped them to the back of the Whisper White piece. 

I stamped the words using Night of Navy ink and I die cut them with the 2-3/8" circle die. I die cut a black scalloped circle that was just a little bigger than the white circle. I taped those pieces together and added Dimensionals to the back.  I made sure that the Dimensionals didn't touch the ribbon.  It would cause the circle to sit crooked.

I added Dimensionals to the back of the mustache and set it in place.  I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of white card stock to the inside for writing and that was it!!

This was a very easy and fun card to make.  What a great way to use up some strips of DSP!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
