Stampin’ Up! Masculine Thinking of You

It’s Saturday… and I’m knee- deep in a convention… lots of debate and amendments. It’s very civil, and it’s necessary to keep the organization in good order, but oh my, it’s l-o-n-g. Today’s card is another necessary… a couple of thinking of you cards for men friends of ours struggling with their health. The two cards are very similar, different card bases and DSP used and embellishments, but same layout. And you like that right? Here they are…

The Positive Thoughts stamp set is perfect for these cards – it gives the right sentiment without being too mushy.

The card on the left uses In Good Taste DSP, Simply Elegant Trim in Silver, Tasteful Textures EF, Matte Black Dots, Picture This Dies for the sentiment, Smokey Slate and Basic Black card stocks. Smokey Slate ink for stamping.

Masculine Thinking of you

Here I stamped using Smoky Slate ink on a Basic White panel, added the strip from the envelope flap (you’ll see this in the next photo :), adhered it to a Basic Black panel and adhered it into the inside of the card.

I added more of the same In Good Taste DSP to the flap, and die cut the edge with one of the Basic Borders Dies. And the card was done – ready to go out in today’s mail.

The card on the right uses Beauty of the Earth DSP, Tasteful Labels Dies for the sentiment die cut and Champagne Rhinestone Jewels for the embellishment, Cinnamon Cider and Early espresso card stocks. Early Espresso ink for stamping.

For the inside of this card I stamped the sentiment and the butterflies in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel- both from Positive Thoughts stamp set, then layered it on Early Espresso card stock and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Again, same Beauty of The Earth DSP on the envelope flap and on the front another butterfly stamped in Early Espresso ink. And this card is gone already. :O)

I really like how these cards turned out – simple, again, but layered and thoughtful for each individual. And they do fit the person to whom they are being given: one man is very quiet and a bit shy while the other man is a bit of a partier and flashy.

The countdown for Sale-a-bration is 6 days if you count today. Remember what that means – no more free Stampin’ Up! goodies, no extra bundle if you decide to join as a demonstrator… more particulars follow. If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual 2021 Catalog OR Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. And when I send it, there will be a Sale-a-bration catalog in with it! That means more FREE items to choose from with every order of $50, or $100 or multiples of that.
