Need card ideas for Father’s Day?  This simple 4 1/2″ square card combines simple elements with the strength of two classy patterns from Stampin’ Up! Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You can purchase Quatrefancy Specialty DSP beginning this Friday, May 31, when the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog begins!

The foundation for today’s card is this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO295).


  • The cute combination of the mustache and tie (even the tiny silver brad) were inspired by a Stampin’ Up! card idea.  I couldn’t resist trying it with my own design.

  • The Naturals Designer Button is a bold element with a masculine edge.  Bingo.
  • Those flagged ends can be created quickly and easily.  Watch the 1 Minute to WOW! Video I previously shared to learn how.
