Good Morning! I have a quick and easy card for you today perfect for the guys – my Tailored Birthday card …
I always am looking for quick and easy ways to make cards for the male species and combining the new True Gentleman Designer Series Paper with the Tailored Tag Punch has resulted in this really quick, really easy card.
Simply pick 6 different design from the True Gentleman Paper pack and punch them out using the Tailored Tag Punch. Affix them to a coordinating card base in a tiled layout and add one ’tile’ with the birthday sentiment and you are done!!
Step up this card with a few flicks of a Stampin’ Write marker on the card base before ‘laying your tiles’ and add one or two of the True Gentleman Buttons with a touch of Linen Thread and you are done!
The two sentiments I’ve used on today’s card come from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set. That’s another great set for creating all sorts of card as it has some wonderful birthday sentiments in it.
Stamping Basics Classes
Are you free on a Wednesday?
I’m starting a fortnightly ‘Stamping Basics’ class at my house. I’ll show you the basics of stamping and cover all the neat tricks I’ve learned over the years. We will cover things like what inks to use for a particular technique or type of cardstock or material to stamp with. How to care for your stamps, the basics of layering the pieces on your cards, plus much much more!
First class will be Wednesday 14th March and they’ll be on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month and class will be just $15.00.
Even if you’ve been stamping for a little while you may find these classes useful for learning some neat tricks and different ways to get a particular look you’ve been after. I’d love to have you join us!
Thanks for stopping by …
