I’ve made a simple, but layered, card to share with you today. With neutral tones and fun patterns, this is a perfect thank you card for the man in your life. The simple layout, though, can be used to build a card for anyone. Not every man would love to receive this card (I like brighter, bolder colors), and not every woman would be upset to receive it (neutrals are for everyone). Still I used for patterns from the He’s the Man Specialty Designer Series Paper to build it and a die from the coordinating set. Here’s my card:
I’m going to let you know right now – the rest of this post is about showcasing the new products I used to build this card. There will be some tips and tricks peppered in, but I’m mostly glowing about the new products I am playing with. Yay!
My card features four patterns from the He’s the Man Specialty Designer Series Paper. Not only does this pack of paper include pages centered around style, card, camping and barbecuing, but there are two pages of punch-out images included in the pack. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this incredible pack of papers (you can click on the image below to tab through these pages in my online store, including the punch-out pages showcased as the front panel):
I used the last two patterns on the top line above to create the backdrop for the focal point on my card. The torn-edges, ripped paper is punched from the first page on the top row, and the Cajun Craze, striped strip is pulled from the second page above. How fun it was to play with these neutral, regal tones.
The scripty, fun “thank you!” at the center of this card is stamped with Early Espresso on Sahara Sand with the Good Feelings stamp set. I love, love, love this set! Here’s a look:
I cropped the “thank you” with another new product from Stampin’ Up!’s 2022 Annual Catalog – the Decorative Circle Punch. The wavy-edged circle measures approximately 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″. The wavy edges looked great with the torn edges of the paper I showcased on my card. Here’s a look at the Decorative Circle Punch:
One more new thing to showcase – I cropped the Early Espresso argyle pattern that peeks out from under the Decorative Circle Punch cutout. The All That Dies feature some wonderful, all-purpose shapes. You need these! Even if you aren’t excited by the sentiments in the He’s All That stamp set, you can get 10% off when you buy the stamp set and dies together. Good deal! Here’s a look at the He’s All That Bundle:
The colors on this card are pulled right from the He’s the Man Specialty Designer Series Paper. If you like this mix of Sahara Sand, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
