A Truly Tailored 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop


Welcome to the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! I am very excited to be part of fun blog hop along my fellow demonstrators. This month’s theme is all about the Occasions Catalog which just launched on January 3rd! Here is my project below:

Handmade by Hiske (7)

For this project, I used the True Gentleman Suite in the 2018 Occasions Catalog! This is one of my favourite suite/stamp sets in the new catalog with it being tailored toward men.

To make this card, my base is made of Night of Navy Cardstock, topped with Tranquil Tide Cardstock and follow by Very Vanilla Cardstock. The Night of Navy and Tranquil Tide designer paper are from the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper Pack.

Using the Truly Tailored Stamp Set, I used the “Wishing You A Dapper Day” stamp along with the bow stamp in Night of Navy ink on the largest square of the Stitched Shapes Framelits in Very Vanilla Cardstock. The Very Vanilla square was layered on top of a Tranquil Tide square which is layered on top of a Night of Navy square.

After gluing the Very Vanilla rectangle on top of the Tranquil Tide rectangle, I glued the two different designer series paper pieces onto the Very Vanilla cardstock. Then, I wrapped the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon around this piece of cardstock. I, then, made a bow out of the same ribbon and glued it on the ribbon using Mini Glue Dots.

Then, I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the previously glued square to the rectangle and regular Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the rectangle to the Night of Navy card base.

And that’s it! A beautiful truly tailored card for that special dapper someone!
