Greetings, Stampers! How are all my bloggy friends today? I'm doing just fine, and immensely enjoying playing with all my "loot" from the new Spring Catalog which I pre-ordered last week. I love the perks of being a Stampin' Up Demonstrator! Today I have a masculine card for you, featuring the Dapper Dad Stamp Set. It's a set of three stamps, with images of a watch, a shoe and bow tie. It's perfect for Father's Day, masculine birthdays, and many other occasions when you need a "guy" card.
The layout was provided by this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge. Although it's kind of hard to see in my photo, I do have a row of piercings under the greeting as in the sketch. I replaced the scalloped circle with a shape cut using the Apothecary Accents Framelits. It was just the right size for my watch!
As soon as I saw this watch image, it reminded me of my Skagen watch, and I thought I'd try heat embossing it with Pewter Embossing Powder. Love it! The paper in the background reminds me of a pattern in a silk tie. It's from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack, which is filled with oodles of patterns both feminine and masculine, and features all the new In-Colors.
