Handsomely Suited, Masculine Birthday Card, 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I love it when I can find a fun, quick and easy masculine card to make. I had bought the "Handsomely Suited" bundle and have not played with it much. With Father's Day coming up I thought I would make a Father's Day card but I saw this card first and I didn't want to forget about it. (Trust me, I forget a lot of things!!!). I could pin it but then you have to remember to go into your pins and find it but before you go into your pins you are on a fresh new page in Pinterest and the trouble starts!  LOL  Anyway, I thought I would just stop and make this card first and then find a nice Father's Day card to make or be inspired by. You can see the original card here

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. 

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Night of Navy card stock was cut and taped to the card base. 

The Basic White piece was cut at 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  The first thing I stamped were the words. I wanted to make sure I get them on nice and straight with plenty of room for bow ties. The words were stamped using Night of Navy ink.

Then I die cut the bow using the die from the "Suit & Tie" dies and some Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Well Suited" 12" x 12" package.  I also cut the small oval from the same DSP.  I set the bow on the Basic White piece so I would know where to stamp the bow ties.

The bow ties were stamped using Night of Navy ink and were just added randomly.  

I taped the Basic White piece to the Night of Navy piece.

The die cut bow tie was added using Dimensionals. I also added a small Dimensional to the center oval of the bow tie and the card was done.  I told you it was a very quick card. It took longer to get the materials out to make this card than it did to make it. Well, in my workroom it takes a while! LOL

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to see this quick and easy masculine birthday card,
