Good morning! I remember the days when my boys were young that we always got a new tie for my husband for Father’s day. He had to wear ties to work and was really bad about spilling his coffee, so a new tie was always good. The problem was that I liked the newer styles and he liked the more conservative styles, so I usually picked the wrong tie. So I love a tie Father’s Day card and the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle is perfect! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I embossed a Balmy Blue panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I used three different patterns of the Well Suited designer series paper to cut the long tie and knot from the Suit & Tie dies – don’t forget to turn the knot sideways before cutting! I adhered the knots to the top of the ties and then adhered the ties to the embossed panel.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited cling stamp set on Basic Black with Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heated it with my heat tool until it was shiny and popped it on the ties with dimensionals.
I popped the panel on the front of a Basic Gray card base with dimensionals and added tie-tacks to each of the ties with the gray pearls from the Pastel Pearls.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Well Suited DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle is great for masculine cards with wonderful sentiments and classic suited stamps and dies. I have also seen so many creative non-suit cards made with the dies – polo shirts, flannel shirts (with suspenders even!), Hawaiian shirts, scrubs, cammos, and even Harry Potter inspired cards! And though the bundle pricing with the 10% discount will go away when the Mini Catalog closes at the end of June, the stamps and dies are carried over into the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.
