A Dapper Birthday

Happy Saturday everyone.  Remember I said I had a series of three cards for a couple celebrating their anniversary and birthdays on the same day.  This is the second of the three.  I used the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #263.  The sketch is perfect for creating a masculine card.

Card Base:  Night of Navy CS cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"; score at 4-1/4"

Sentiment Layer:  On Very Vanilla CS, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Truly Tailored stamp set using Night of Navy and Tranquil Tide inks with Versamark and Clear Embossing Powder.  I didn't want the mustache that is part of the sentiment so I covered it up when I stamped the two parts of the sentiment.  I cut a 2-1/2" square piece of True Gentleman DSP in half diagonally.  These were added to opposite corners.  I added a 1/4" strip of Night of Navy CS over the edge of the DSP and trimmed off the overhang flush with the edge of the Very Vanilla layer.  The whole layer was added to the card front.

The Finishing Touch:  I fussy cut a bow tie from the same DSP and added it with Glue Dots.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you are enjoying a great weekend.  Be blessed and be safe.
