The timing is perfect for using the new stamp set, A Good Man. With Father’s Day around the corner, and summer birthdays, it’s just what I needed for masculine cards.
I began by stamping this relaxing man in Memento Black Ink on Watercolor Paper. Then, I colored him with Stampin’ Blends: Ivory for his skin, Light Balmy Blue for his shorts, and Light Crumb Cake for his hat. His canvas chair is Light Pineapple Punch and Light Pumpkin Pie. He fit within a Rectangle Stitched die, which made cutting easy.
For his background, I used a second, Rectangle Stitched die to cut a piece of Balmy Blue Cardstock. To add some interest, I topped this with some Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut DSP. This is retiring, but if you miss out, there is new Shimmer Laser-Cut DSP, #149611.
After tying some Linen Thread around the bottom, I glued this to a Sahara Sand card base.
The sentiment, “Relax your way,” was stamped in Memento Black Ink on Watercolor Paper, and cut with a third, Rectangle Stitched Die.
“A Good Man” is relaxing on vacation, which was designed to fit Ann’s theme for this week’s Paper Player’s challenge.
Add this masculine stamp set, A Good Man, to your list. It’s available for ordering in just a couple days, June 4th!
Thanks for stopping by! Now, check out more summer vacation themed cards, and come play along!
