All Occasion Card Class/Club - Wednesday, December 10 - Card #1

This is one of the cards we'll be making at our All-Occasion Card Class this week...

I decided to focus on a Masculine theme for this card - it seems we just don't make enough masculine cards for the guys in our lives!

And....  when I first saw the pattern of this Designer Series Paper (from the Santa & Co DSP), it reminded me of a man's sweater - a perfect look for a masculine card!!

We start this card with a Basic Gray Card base, then added a layer of Smoky Slate card stock.  Next, we added that manly strip of DSP to the bottom of the card and tied a Marina Mist 1/4" Cotton Ribbon around it.  I think this ribbon still has a masculine look to it (especially since we didn't tie a bow!)

Our next step to this simple card was to stamp the "happy Big day" in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (from the Chalk Talk Stamp set) and die-cut it with the coordinating Chalk Talk framelits.  You can buy these items separately, or they are also bundled together for a 15% savings on both items!  Finally, we added a Marina Mist Candy Dot to the sentiment and popped up on Dimensionals.
