True Gentleman DSP

This DSP paper is gorgeous and fun!  It is perfectly masculine, has fresh designs, fabulous colors (Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide, and Very Vanilla), and coordinates so well with the Wood Textures DSP stack in the annual catalog.  I made my DH’sdouble z-fold birthday card out of this paper and and he really liked it as well.  (See that card HERE.) Love it!

True Gentleman Designer Series Paper

Truly Tailored Clear Mount bundle

This Occasions catalog bundle is the perfect companion for the DSP paper.  This suite has a coordinating set of buttons, masculine corduroy ribbon, and a cardstock pack.  The stamps themselves are fun and great for Father’s Day, birthday, or all occasion card.

Classy Kind of Guy

Sometimes, when I see a card in my head, it just comes together in a snap.  However, I’d punched the pieces and played with them last week and couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do.  Last night I went in my Blue Room (aka craft room or my room of random stuff) not knowing what I was going to create, pulled these pieces out and it all just fell into place.  

This card came together pretty easily once I figured out the layout.  I knew I wanted to include shapes punched from the Tailored Tag punch in 2 of the designs.  These two patterns are actually the front and back of one of the DSP sheets.  The Very Vanilla punched piece for the sentiment is matted with two Night of Navy punched pieces.  When I got the card all glued down I thought I might need something else and added the Linen Thread surround.  It adds some interest and dimension without overpowering the clean lines of the card.

I’d love to know what you think about this card and bundle, so please leave a comment below.

Have a Peachy day!
