Today’s masculine card gets it’s dapper details from the Stampin’ Up! True Gentleman Suite and Truly Tailored stamp set.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Create a standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base using Crumb Cake Card Stock. Adhere a 3″ x 5″ houndstooth pattern from True Gentleman Designer Series Paper to card base.
Stamp sentiment from Truly Tailored stamp set in Dapper Denim ink on Very Vanilla card stock. Crop with circle from Layering Circles Dies and layer over a Chocolate Chip circle created with Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
Re-stamp sentiment on Crumb Cake card stock (Dapper Denim ink). Crop “dapper” using the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Magnetic Platform (to keep the die in place) and die from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals as shown. The sentiment layout was inspired by a card in my Stampin’ Success demonstrator magazine!.
Using a Chocolate Chip Ink Pad or Stampin’ Write Marker, ink the mustache portion of the sentiment. Stamp on Very Vanilla card stock and snip with Paper Snips. Cut a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional in half and use to adhere the mustache.
Thread two True Gentleman buttons (one of My Favorite Things in the Occasions Catalog) with Linen Thread. Tie one in a bow and the other in a knot. Adhere with Glue Dots.
Adhere sentiment circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals to 3″ square of Dapper Denim card stock. Adhere to card base as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Adhere bow tie pattern from True Gentleman Designer Series Paper to the flap of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. Remove excess with Paper Snips.

Are you “sweet” for Sweet Sugar Plum? Delighted by Dapper Denim? Get a closer look at the currently available Stampin’ Up! 2016-18 In Color products here,
IF YOU LOVE THEM, GET THEM NOW! Many of the coordinating 2016-2018 In Color products will retire as of June first (when the 2018-2019 annual catalog begins) and will be on the Retiring Products List in April (date to be determined). In the past, retiring In Color products have sold out very quickly (and forever) once they hit the retiring product list (April).
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Stampin’ Up! has the option to keep or bring back any of these colors and products if they do an update of the color collections. However, purchasing them now, while they are in stock, is the only SURE THING!
