Masculine Birthday Card - Truly Tailored (retiring)


Happy Wednesday, everyone! Boy, this weather is crazy! We were close to 80 last Friday, we were in the 30s and it snowed again on Monday (thankfully none of it stuck, since the ground is too warm), and today, it's supposed to be in the 60s again! I'm ready for this weather cycle to end! I'm ready for Spring weather only! LoL Hopefully, Monday was the last day of winter weather until next winter!

Well, to more fun things to talk about. Here's the card I promised to show you last Saturday. This is the card I made for my dad for his birthday. I was inspired from a card I saw on Pinterest. It was made by Angela McKay.

I used the retiring Truly Tailored Stamp Set, True Gentleman Designer Series Paper (DSP), and Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon from the Occasions Catalog. I also used the retiring Bow Builder Punch from the Annual Catalog. I'm really going to miss all of these items! I absolutely LOVE the DSP and that corduroy ribbon!


Dimensions:

  • Crumb Cake:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base), 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" (embossed layer mat), & 3" x 5" (circle mat and tag)
  • Tranquil Tide:  2" x 4" (embossed layer)
  • Very Vanilla:  3" x 3" (circle) & 4" x 5-1/4" (inside layer)
  • True Gentleman Designer Series Paper (DSP):  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer), 4" x 1" (bow tie paper-front), 4" x 1/2" (bow tie-inside), 4" x 3/4" (bottom inside), and scraps (bow tie)
  • Night of Navy 3/8" Corduroy Ribbon:  6"

Instructions:

  1. Fold the Crumb Cake card base piece in half (fold on the left) to form card base. Attach the bow tie paper-front piece across the bottom of the DSP base layer piece. Wrap the corduroy ribbon around the top edge of the bow tie layer, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the DSP base layer piece. Then, attach the whole thing to the center of the card front.
  2. Emboss the Tranquil Tide piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach the piece to the center of the Crumb Cake embossed layer mat piece. Then, attach it to the left side of the card (see left picture).
  3. Ink the words on the "Wishing You a Dapper Day" stamp from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set with the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the mustache and mouth with the Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp it onto the center of the Very Vanilla circle piece. Die-cut it out using the third, largest circle die from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. Die-cut another circle out of one end of the last Crumb Cake piece using the second, largest circle die. Attach the stamped circle onto the center of the Crumb Cake circle. Then, attach it to the top, right-side of the embossed layer using Stampin' Dimensionals (see left picture).
  4. Stamp the "Classy Kind of Guy" stamp onto the other end of the last Crumb Cake piece using the Night of Navy ink pad. Punch it out with the Tailored Tag Punch. From a scrap piece of the plaid paper from the DSP pack, punch out one of the small rectangle section and two of the bow section (oval-like/tabbed ends) of the Bow Builder Punch. Put a Mini Glue Dot onto one of the tab ends of a bow piece, bend the piece so both tabs are on the same side, and attach the tab ends together. Do the same with the other bow piece. Put a Mini Glue Dot onto the tab of one of the bow pieces, and attach the tab of the other bow piece to it to form the bow. Put a Mini Glue Dot onto each end of the rectangle piece. Wrap the rectangle around the middle of the bow, attach both ends to the back of the bow. Attach the bow tie to the top, center of the greeting tag using another Mini Glue Dot. Attach the tag to the bottom, left of the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Inside of card: Attach the DSP bottom inside piece across the bottom of the Very Vanilla inside layer piece. Attach the DSP bow tie-inside piece across the top of the first DSP strip. Stamp the "Today is Your Day..." stamp onto the top, center of the piece using the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Stamp the "Hoping Your Birthday..." stamp underneath the first using the Night of Navy ink pad (see right picture).

When attaching, use SNAIL Adhesive, unless stated otherwise.
