4/23 A Trio of Stampin' Up! Dapper Dad Cards


I came across a really cute set of cards using the Dapper Dad stamp set back in January or February. As soon as I saw them, I knew they would be perfect for our Spring Fling. I cased Christina Barnes and I just love how they turned out. So did our Spring Fling attendees!


I also provided a "wrap" for the cards that we made to hold the three manly cards. The front has a Velcro closure. The sides are open, but a bit of twine keeps the cards from falling out. A very quick and easy to make card holder.


Here's a close up of the shoe card. Of the three that Christina created, this is the one I modified the most by adding the Natural Trim Ribbon. The ribbon has kind of a "burlap" feel to it so I guess if you could ever call a piece of ribbon "manly" this would be it! lol!


Here is the watch card. My favorite thing about this watch is that I can add a rhinestone to it and class it up instantly. I LOVE adding a rhinestone to a "manly" card :) !


And finally, this trio is topped off with a bow tie card. Fun and simple to do.  My customers selected the sentiments of their choice from a collection of sentiments in our Teeny Tiny Wishes set.

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by Stamping to Share. I truly appreciate you and hope that you are inspired to create some Dapper Dad cards of your own!
