In Good Taste Masculine Card

You NEED this designer paper! I was having fun with the sunlight this morning, and couldn’t resist showing you how it plays on this realistic wood. This is just one of many designs of the new, In Good Taste DSP. If you click on the question mark in my Product List below, you can see all of the designs.

Sunlight on wood

 

I began by using the largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut the first layer from the DSP, followed by cutting a second, smaller piece from the middle.

The middle piece was layered with cardstock for thickness, and placed on Foam Adhesive Strips. These are twice the height of Dimensionals, and I wanted the added dimension.

Before attaching the middle, I tied a piece of Braided Linen Trim around it, finished with a knot. It’s more masculine than a bow, right?

TIP: It’s held in place with tape on the back, and Mini Dots on the front.

 

For some color, I used a Forever Flourishing Die to cut a sprig from Garden Green cardstock.

This is a birthday card from a group of people, so I chose the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, “from all of us.” It fit perfectly within the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. I layered it for thickness, so it would be sturdy, hanging over the edge.

 

My layout is from Freshly Made Sketches.

Forever Fern Hello

 

I began by stamping the splotch from the Waterfront StampSet in Blushing Bride Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. I “stamped off” the splotch twice, and stamped the dots full strength. Can you see the images I used?

 

Next, I stamped the same splotch on Whisper White Cardstock with Soft Sea Foam Ink, and used the Forever Flourishing Die for cutting the branch.

 

“Hello” is from the Forever Fern Stamp Set, stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink , and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. The little hole in the die-cut was perfect for tying Baker’s Twine.

I adhered my art piece to a Soft Sea Foam card base, and my Forever Fern sneak peek was complete.

 

My layout was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.

 

And, the colors are from Global Design Project.

Product List

Forever Greenery Sneak Peek

Today’s “clean & simple” masculine card is giving you a sneak peek of three new, 2020-2021 products. Actually, four, if you count the DSP I’m using for photography. It’s from In Good Taste, and I can’t say enough about how fabulous it is. There’s a great variety (24 sheets) of photographed images, and it was at the top of my list!

Forever Greenery for Guys

 

First of all, the card base is a new color, Misty Moonlight.  I combined it with a stripe of Forever Greenery Designer Paper, using four strips that I cut with my Stampin’ Trimmer. I glued three strips at an angle, as shown, and one horizontal strip underneath the middle, angled strip.

The entire collection of DSP is absolutely yummy! There  is a question mark in my Product List below, but if you click on it, you can see all of the luscious designs.

 

The strips are glued to a Whisper White Cardstock layer that I embossed with the new Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. I remember saying someone needed to take the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder away from me, because I used it so much. I think I can finally let go of it, because this beauty is going to become a fast favorite!

 

“Happy Birthday” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, Stamped in Night of Navy Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. I placed it on Mini-Dimensionals and my “clean & simple,” masculine birthday card was complete.

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches for the layout.

And, the Paper Players for a “clean & simple” card with men in mind.
