I held my April card classes last week and we made the following cards using the Handsomely Suited Bundle. They were fun Covid-safe classes, with five groups of ladies over three days.
I cased this from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalogue but made a few changes.
This card is so stylish and is a great masculine card. The handkerchief was stamped using the tip of the Tie stamp and hand cut to fit.
I cased this card from Stamp it up with Jaimie.
I changed the colours of the DSP and ties. This is another simple but very effective masculine card and the ladies at class had fun changing it up more to make them individual.
I love seeing the creativity of my happy stampers when they finish their creations.
I cased this next card from Juleen Henderson.
We used the retired Cable Knit Embossing Folder as it was highly effective. I love the simplicity of this card but you do need to think about the order of layering before you stick pieces together.
I found popping the collar up on dimensionals looked great and made adding the centre strip easier.
I wanted to use this bundle to show that you could make feminine cards with it too.
This was my design after lots of playing. I wanted to use the bows in the bundle but ended up using ribbon. The V can be cut using the dies and the Dainty Diamond embossing folder added a lovely texture.
I used the button die to cut silver foil for the necklace and the stitched strip as the waist band on the dress. I hope you like it.
They were the four cards we made at class but here’s a few more that I made as samples to show the versatility of this bundle.
I came up with this design while playing around. It has a lot of pieces and detail that was layered. I added a double lapel using contrasting Very Vanilla for the collar.
The detail in the pocket is lace ribbon and the necklace was made using gold cord, a tiny flower from the Hydrangea Dies and a Pearl. I used the Ornate floral 3D embossing folder to add texture to the jacket.
I even added some skin tone above the collar.
I hope you like my card.
This card was very simple, the bow used as the embellishment is from the Handsomely Suited dies, I ran it through the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder for extra detail.
I had fun creating this card at my last retreat. I cased it from Danielle Howard who cased it from Pinterest.
I made a few changes and added my twist. I love the simple, clean look of this card.
The tee-shirt with red bow tie gives it a ‘Sheldon’ look. The lapel and pocket was covered in packing tape before cutting it out with the dies, this give it the shinny look.
The main part of the suit was run through the Subtle embossing folder.
The ladies from Wednesday night class – thanks for allowing me to share your photos.
I love seeing your variations of the cards. Creativity was flowing!
We’ll be creating four cards using the Butterfly Brilliance bundle for our next class.
