Stampin Up Well Suited Suite #2 Masculine Cards

 Hi friends. It’s another cold and dreary day here in Nevada. We had about 1 inch of snow last night with more predicted for today. I guess it will be another stay in craft day. Oh darn! Haha.

I had the Well Suited DSP on my desk from yesterday and decided I would make another couple of masculine cards to add to my stash. These were so easy to make. 

My first card I went with a grey and black scheme and the 2nd card I went with a blue color scheme. I tried to use up my scraps as much as possible.

I started each card with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Heavy Basic White card base. I then cut two piece of Basic White to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I ran one sheet through my Cut and Emboss machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D folder #152718 and the other using Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder #152702. I then cut two pieces of the Well Suited DSP to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and then cut each on a diagonal about 1/3 down. I then cut two strips of scraps at 6 in x 5/8. I choose Basic Black and Seaside Spray. I then punched the largest oval from the Double Oval Punch #154242 in Smoky Slate and Night of Navy. I then stamped the sentiment from the Handsomely Suited Stamp #154444 in Black and then Night of Navy on a scrap of Basic White. I punched these out with the smallest oval. It’s always easier to stamp then punch or die cut! 

Since I had all the pieces ready it was just a couple of minutes to put them together. I added the embossed sheet to the card stock, then layered the colored DSP. I then laid the 5/8 in solid color strips along the diagonal and then trimmed the edges to match the card base. I then glued the sentiment to the larger oval. I popped this up with dimensionals over the solid strip. I added three of the matte black dots #154284 on the grey black card and dug in my stash for some retired blue holiday rhinestones to go with the blue theme card.

I added some matching paper to the envelope flap and another strip to the bottom of a piece of Basic White cut to 4 x 5 1/4 for the inside.

So easy to make! I think this design could be used for i birthdays, masculine cards, holiday cards and more. You could always add a die cut in place of the ovals and stamp your sentiment on the diagonal strip. Endless possibilities.

Hope you enjoyed these cards today. I’ll probably be back tomorrow with my Valentine cards. I know I’m running out of time if I’m going to mail them. I’m thinking I might use this same layout with some valentine paper and a couple of hearts with Happy Valentine’s Day stamped on the diagonal.
