DSC#135 - Masculine Tie & Vest Birthday Card - NEW Video!

Hi Stampers,
Well it's another masculine card for this weeks DOstamper Thursday DSC#135 Color My World Challenge.  This challenge gave me another opportunity to make a another masculine card. I really have a shortage on them right now and when I saw the colors for this weeks challenge, for some reason I saw a mans shirt and tie in my head.  This card was a real challenge for me. The main idea for the card was there, but it took me forever to figure out what to do to make the collar and lapels on the shirt stand out to hold the tie.  It is definitely easier to tie the real tie on your husbands neck  than onto the card base!  LOL  Hope you enjoy the card,  I would love to hear your comments if you have time. God Bless!

I used the Crazy About You Stamp Set for the Happy Birthday sentiment and the NEW  Banner Triple Punch  for the flagged banner. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that new punch!  It pretty much punches any size flagged banner for you, perfect flagged ends all the time.  How cool is that?

Basic Card Instructions:
  • Stamp sentiment onto 3/4" wide piece of Sahara Sand CS using the Crazy About You Stamp Set, then flag the edges using the NEW Banner Triple Punch.
  • Cut a Chocolate Chip CS for base 4-1/4" x 11" and score at 5-1/2".
  • Cut Pool Party CS @ 4" x 5-1/4" for layer 1
  • Cut Moonlight CS for the vest.
  • Cut Whisper White CS for the lapels, and attach 2 Chocolate Chip Candy Dots.
  • Cut 12" of Chocolate Chip 3/4" Chevron Ribbon and tie like a real men's tie.
  •  Loop some Linen Thread into the button and place onto the vest with glue dots
  • Use lots of Dimensionals to "pop" the lapels of the collar.
  • The Envelope and Envelope Liner were made with the Envelope Punch Board and the Neutrals Backgrounds Designer Series Paper

    1. Thank you Bobbi! Truth be told, the making of this card was a total of hit and miss. I had NO idea what the heck I was doing. I just kept cutting and folding white paper until I could make it look like a lapel. Thanks for taking time to comment! Appreciated!
