I always look forward to the masculine theme suite that is released in the Occasions Catalogue. Last year we played with tools in the Nailed It Suite.
This year it’s all bow ties, combed hair and smart spectacles for the True Gentleman Suite. Time to create a whole range of ‘dapper’ cards.
Using a whole product suite really makes it easy to whip up designer cards!
Here’s the full range of True Gentleman products…
The coordinating colours are Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide & Very Vanilla.
Here’s a couple of cards I’ve made using the products…
The first card uses the punch & DSP to create a tiled background – isn’t it a great shape!!
You can nudge the punched shapes up against each other, or if you prefer, leave a gap like I did so the card base colour comes through too.
There’s so many options within my existing craft stash that coordinate with this suite including the Burlap Ribbon & Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon in Night of Navy..
The second card I’m sharing for today uses the “have a dapper day” stamp from the Truly Tailored stamp set. I added the ‘birthday’ from the Birthday Wit stamp set – it coordinates so well!!
How awesome is that plaid DSP??
And you’ve got to love the embellishments from this suite – Corduroy Ribbon & True Gentleman wood buttons!
Make sure to order these supplies before May, ready for our Father’s Day in September. The seasonal offerings don’t line up with the US for Father’s Day, so you’ll need to plan ahead!
To see products in action, see the colours and feel the quality, book an in-home workshop. I can travel anywhere within the greater Bunbury area.
I’d love to craft with you & your friends!
