Today I made a masculine Thank You card for some men at my church who help out with small projects for my widow’s group. They are an awesome group of men and have really come through for some of the women. I used products from the Classic Garage Suite in the Occasions Catalog.
This is a great stamp set for masculine cards. It’s perfect for Father’s Day, Birthdays and of course Thank You cards. There is a coordinating 6x6 Designer Series Paper pack with images relating to cars, tool, tire tracks and most have a grungey look….is that a word?
Here’s the dimensions:
Tranquil Tide Card Base - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
Classic Garage DSP Layer - 5 1/4 x 4
Strips of Classic Garage DSP - one at 4 1/4 x 1 and one at 4 1/4 x 3/4
Whisper White for sentiment punched with Tailored Tag Punch
Classic Garage DSP punched with Tailored Tag Punch and then cut in half.
Layer the DSP on the card base the the two strips of DSP together and adhere to card base.
Stamp your sentiment on the Whisper White tag with Tranquil Tide Ink. I used the sentiment from the Flowering Desert Stamp Set. You can use whatever fits the tag. Cut the Classic Garage DSP label in half and then adhere to the back side of the label leaving a space so that it gives you a nice boarder. I used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue so I can adjust it a little before the glue dries.
Look at these Classic Garage Metal Elements! They are just perfect for a guy card. Some are keys and some are wrenches. I used a very small piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive to make sure it sticks good; it has some weight to it.
For the inside I used the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set. The tool box was stamped in Real Red with a stamp from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set.
I’m happy with the way the card turned out and think the men will like it too!
