Hello my friends! I hope you are all keeping well. I received a surprise FedEx package the other day so I needed to make a Thank You card. I make lots of Thank You cards every month because I put one in with every customer order. Those are easy because they are for women. This card is a male themed card which I always find more challenging.
I decided to start with the Handsomely Suited stamp set and the coordinating Well Suited DSP. The stamp set had two stamps that were perfect for the card I wanted to make.
I started with a Pacific Point card base. On top of this I added a piece of Basic White cardstock. On top of the white, I added a piece of Basic Black cardstock and on top of that I added my piece of DSP.
On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I repeatedly stamped the polka dot bow tie image using Pacific Point ink. I stamped off once so it would not be too dark. On top of that, I stamped my sentiments using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I then used one of the dies from Hippo & Friends die set to cut out this piece. I also cut out the next larger size from a piece of Basic Black cardstock. I matted the sentiment piece using this piece.
Since I have a hard time making a card without putting ribbon on it I decided to add some baker's twine. I made a small nest using the Basic Gray baker's twine from the Well Suited Twine combo pack. I attached this nest to the back of my sentiment piece using tape. I then added my sentiment piece to my card front using dimensionals.
What I used for today's card:
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. It is a little more on the simpler side than my usual style but I think it is great for a male card. I didn't want to add ribbons or rhinestones so this works. I think the recipient will be happy as I'm sure he will not be expecting it.
Stay well and keep creating!
