Suit and Tie.


Today I'm here to share a little smart dressed man with you, okay no it's really paper.  This is a fabulous Die-namics set that I had a blast customizing with the newest MFT Background stamps.  The set gives you the option of creating a standard tie, or a bow tie.  Today my card is suited up with the standard tie.

Remember to visit the MFT Blog each day for your chance at one of SEVEN $75 gift cards! You'll find links to participating designers each day, see the full stamp and Die-namics graphics & product videos to see the new products in action! 

The Grid Background was stamped to Berrylicious card stock with the Berrylicious Hybrid ink before I did my die-cutting. Then I used a bit of foam tape to pop up the windsor knot for a dimensional feel.  The body of the suit was stamped with the Pinstripe Background using Black Licorice Hybrid ink to Black Licorice card stock.  It's super subtle, but I like it.


The obvious choice is to use it as a father's day card, but here's another idea.  Paired with one of the stamps from our April Release it becomes a wonderful "Congratulations on your new job!" card. Or "Boo-yeah for you on your big fat promotion!"  You decide.   You know me, I like to give you all some options in your crafting.

The inside was layered quickly with the new Rectangle Frames Die-namics. I love these babies.  Now that I can cut these so quickly I think I'll put them into action on the insides of my cards too.  I love the extra POP it gives.  The Grid Background is making a little appearance inside for a coordinated feel inside and out.



Did I mention that there are THREE fabulous MFT Backgrounds this month. It's back to basics with Linen, Pinstripe and the Grid.  They're all fabulous.

The Rectangle Frames are fabulous and a real must have.  I plan to show the daylights out of them the night of release, so join me then, we'll have fun. 

I'm beyond excited to share the cuteness I have for you tomorrow. So I hope you'll come back to visit with me again tomorrow.

Till then, don't forget to head on over to the MFT Blog for links to all the girls that have stamped something up for you, and of course for information on the SEVEN prizes being given away as part of the release.  SEVEN PRIZES -that's right, get on over there

Great card. Love the masculine images. This is a style I struggle with so any way to make them easier is right up my alley.

Love this look, so cool for guy cards. I can't wait to get my hands on this sort. Think I might need all the backgrounds too. Hugs, Amanda x

Love the traditional look you created using the background stamps. Very crisp and clean.

Great job on the suit, and I never thought to do what you've done--put a frame on the inside of the card. Great job.

Kathy Krug said...

Love the black and blue and how you framed the sentiment on the inside.
