True Gentleman

Good Morning everyone! I'm hoping all is well with you and that you have a BEAUTIFUL day! I have a doctors appointment this morning for my shoulder.  It's been giving me problems for about eight months now so I'm finally having it looked at.  I thought it  might be arthritis setting in to an old injury...I was in a quad wreck about ten years ago and separated my shoulder.  It seems to be getting worse and is affecting my sleep so I'm getting my act together and having it checked. UGHHHHHH...I hate going to the doctor....UGHHHHH...I HATE getting on the scale...dang it!!! My appointment is a ten this morning so I'm hoping to get out to my workshop when I get home! Real quick before I head out I want to share another creation with you! 

Yesterday I shared my spring themed swap card with you so today I want to share my masculine themed swap card. I don't make a lot of masculine cards so I struggle with them. I need to keep challenging myself to make more for the men in my life...I do have four sons, a son-in-law and a husband!

This card has a Dapper Denim base with a 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock as it's first layer. I used the True Gentleman designer paper for the next layer. I LOVE this houndstooth paper. It reminds me of matching outfits my mom had made for herself, me and my grandmother.  We wore blue and white houndstooth pants, vest and jacket with a red shirt underneath! Oh...I've got to find that old photo...it will be good for a giggle and a smile! 

Back to the card!! I used my Stitched Shapes framelits to cut the Very Vanilla circle then stamped the background image using the Best Birds stamp set, in Soft Suede ink.  The sentiment is from the same set and is stamped in Dapper Denim then punched out with the Tailored Tag punch. I punched a second one in Dapper Denim, cut it in half and layered it underneath the sentiment. Last, I attached it to my card with dimensionals (the circle is attached with dimensionals too), and I glued a True Gentleman Button that I tied a piece of Linen Thread in, to the side of the sentiment! This card comes together quickly and easily!  I hope you'll give it a try!

Ok...I'm off to the doctor!  Have a GREAT day and THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by!
