Father's Day Truly Tailored Card Recipe and Tips

Yesterday on the Blog Hop with several Stampin' Up! demonstrators, I shared my Father's Day card featuring the Truly Tailored Bundle and the True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Buttons. I sure hope you enjoyed the blog hop. What a great group of ladies in this Blog Hop. They all love to share everything Stampin' Up! As promised, today I am sharing my tips and tricks for my card.

My goal is to utilize every inch of the DSP drives every cut of my DSP. Cutting this piece of the DSP at 4" x 3" will give you 12 card fronts (2 cuts of 4" down from the top and 3 cuts of 3" across from the side). The Dapper Denim piece is 4" x 2 1/4" so this layer totals 4" x 5 1/4". Then emboss using the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF).

To make the cute embellishment, after stamping the sentiment from the Truly Tailored stamp set i
n Dapper Denim on Very Vanilla Card Stock, instead of centering the sentiment in the Tailored Tag punch window, move the upper edge of the image for a cut that does not allow as much "white space." Maybe this picture will help.

Then adhere a scrap piece to the back of the sentiment for a "handle" and punch the lower edge of the sentiment close with a similar "white space" edge,

Then snip both sides to make the "white space" even around the sentiment.

Adhere to a full punch of Dapper Denim and stack on dimensionals with a twist of Burlap Ribbon. I secured the ribbon with small glue dots.

Finally, for the "Dad" flag, stamp on a strip of Dapper Denim, adhere to a slightly larger strip of Very Vanilla and flag both ends pushing the strip through the top of the Tailored Tag punch, line it up evenly (as shown, looks like a little house, right?) and punch.

So two additional uses for the Tailored Tag Punch. Yay! Then adhere a couple of the small True Gentlemen Buttons and this card is all set!!

I really hope you enjoyed my card and the Blog Hop See you next Wednesday for another new card.

Stamp On!!
