You Are The Best

Good Sunday morning!  I thought this would be the perfect card to share with Father's Day just around the corner!  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Linen embossing folder (I do apologise as I think it has since been discontinued).  Next I created a multi-layered frame using the Double Stitched Rectangles Set B, with the larger bottom area out of white card and a thinner frame of cobalt blue.  I cut  the Pressed Shirt out of some decorative striped paper from my stash.  I cut it again out of white card and trimmed away just the collar and added it on top of the other shirt.  I cut two pockets out of the decorative paper but with the stripes going horizontally.  The tie was cut out of chestnut brown card and I added a bit of shading with a light brown pencil and glued it in place.  I cut the accessories and added them around; the pen, pencil, cell phone and sunglasses.  I added two small buttons to the collar and three black pearls in the corner.  The sentiments were cut out of cobalt blue card and added to the top corner and the pocket.  I completed the card with white, blue and brown mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

GM Sue. Great card. Love it.

Donita Naylor said...

Oh no! I'm late already with my Father's Day card!

Your men's accessories are perfect, and I love the pocket stripes going the other way. For realism, it needs a big ink spot below the pen.

Welcome back, Sam, we missed you!

Hey, the launch starts this week, doesn't it?

Woohoo!

Wishing everyone the best day possible. Find a little moment to enjoy.

Love,
Donita

A lovely card and perfect for lots of dads - Mine especially as he always wore a suit for work
It seems nowadays office workers don’t tend to wear suits Smart shirts- yes but no ties (the big wigs are suited and booted) I love to see a man in a suit
When Lisa showcased this set on Hochanda with your samples I was amazed at the variety and the set is on on Wish List

Hi Sue. Great card for the city gent. Love the embossing folder, I don't think I have seen it before (where have I been?) so I am sorry it seems to have been discontinued. Nevermind, I have saved some money for something else.

Hi Sue
Lovely card for all the men in our lives, I love the pressed shirt Die and all the accessories that go with it especially the phone and sunglasses. Just need to find a patterned paper pad so that I can make some fancy shirts
Welcome home Sam

Love and hugs to everyone

Pawprintx4 said...

Donita! You are so right. I thought of ink spotted pockets when I saw this card. My husband has ruined loads of shirts.Any way,I laughed when I read your post.
I didn't think I needed this die set but I have reconsidered. Lisa showed so many cute samples the other day also.
Sam, I missed you. I had to do my own research the other day! Glad you are home and sorted out and hope you had a lovely vacation.
Everyone, have a great Sunday.

This card would have been ideal for my Dad, he always wore a shirt & usually a tie, even if he was in the garden, my Grandfather even wore a shirt & tie on the beach! Great card with lots of alternatives. Thank you Sue!
Sorry but think I missed commenting yesterday, must go back & check.
