You're a Good Man

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   #ProtipTuesday   Today's card is another great card we made with the "A Good Man" stamp set at the Proverbial Stampers & Friends gathering in June.  This set pairs really well with the striped sheets of either the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper or, as in today's card, with the striped sheet of the Magnolia Lane DSP.

Let's start with the PROTIP, it's one of my favorites. See that Whisper White Card Stock mat between the Night of Navy base and the DSP? You only see a little border. Well, here's the PROTIP--before you even begin assembling the card, stamp the image from the "A Good Man" stamp set in the very center of that mat and cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Die. Who's going to know it's missing when you've assembled your card? You can do this with any die. Here's how it would look if we'd actually done it for this card.

After we stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black, we colored it with Light Night of Navy, Light Old Olive, Light Balmy Blue, Light Crumb Cake, and Ivory Stampin' Blends.  

We adhered a 2-1/4" by 3-3/4" Night of Navy Card Stock piece that we embossed with the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder to the top of a 4" by 5-1/4" Whisper White panel. We adhered a 3-3/4" by 4" piece of Magnolia Lane DSP to the bottom. We wrapped a length of Whisper White Flax Ribbon around the "seam" before adhering everything to a Night of Navy Card Stock card base.

We adhered the stamped rectangle to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. For a finishing touch, we stamped the sentiment onto a 1/2" Whisper White strip and snipped off the end. We adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally, we added a copper Designer Element.  I love those, don't you?!
