Today’s card features some of the new masculine Well-Suited Designer Series Paper that will be available come Jan 5, 2021 – AND the Darling Donkey stamp set that is a FREE ITEM as part of Sale-a-bration, also beginning Jan 5, 2021. That free item is only when purchasing $50 worth of Stampin’ Up! product – just reminding…

Well-Suited Darling Donkey b’day – #1

I am smitten with these donkeys – don’t ask me why, but they definitely tickle my fancy. This card is destined for a young man who is kinda shy and that smile on the donkey is just, well, sweet. And do you notice how the donkey ate a bit of the paper edge? heehee… ok – details…

  • Card stock base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. This is Pacific Point
  • Well-Suited DSP papers (2) are the same size, just angled – 3 3/4 x 4 3/4, adhered to card base with Stampin Seal
  • Sentiment banner: Calypso Coral cut out with Stitched So Sweetly Dies as is the Whisper White panel. I stamped the Whisper White with Pacific Point ink PRIOR to die cutting. The sentiment comes from another new stamp set called Sweet Ice Cream – yep, available Jan 5, 2021. Adhere the Whisper White to the Calypso Coral banner with liquid glue and adhere to the card front with dimensionals.
  • Stamp the donkey from Darling Donkeys stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color with Stampi9n Blends – Crumb Cake and Lt Flirty Flamingo. Fussy cut and adhere to the top of the banner: NOTE… I used a dimensional under the donkeys head and liquid glue on his “sit-upon bottom”.
Well-Suited Darling Donkey b’day – #2
  • For the inside I adhered another panel of the Well-Suited DSP 3 3/4 x 4 3/4 with liquid glue
  • On a panel of Whisper White 3 1/2 x 4 1/2, I stamped the donkey in Tuxedo Black and colored with Stampin Blends, Crumb Cake.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Adhere this panel to the DSP and the inside is done
Well-Suited Darling Donkey b’day – #3

For the envelope – I used one of the same DSP used on the card front to adhere to the envelope flap. I then stamped the sentiment on the card front – again from the darling Donkey stamp set. FINIS… Simple and masculine for a young man, yes!
