#stampinup #faithfulinkspirations #ThoughtfulThursday The "A Good Man" stamp set is one I overlooked in the annual catalog. But when we made four cards with this set at the Proverbial Stampers & Friends gathering, I fell in love with it! It's a lovely set if you have men in your life and you'd like to honor them for being good men.
I particularly like the color scheme and design of this card. It's bold and strong--just like a good man! We started by stamping the main image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a Whisper White Card Stock oval that had been cut with one of the Stitched Shapes Dies. We colored the image with Crumb Cake, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Blueberry Bushel, and Ivory Stampin' Blends. Then we adhered it to a Real Red scalloped oval cut with one of the Layering Ovals Dies.
To build the card, we started with a Blueberry Bushel Card Stock card base and added a 4" by 5-1/4" Whisper White mat. We stamped a sentiment and the heart from the "A Good Man" set in Blueberry Bushel Ink. We colored the heart with a Real Red Stampin' Blend. We adhered a 4" by 1-1/2" piece of Blueberry Bushel Designer Series Paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6" by 6" DSP pack and then wrapped a length of Gray Granite Textured Weave Ribbon around. We adhered this piece to the card base.
Finally, we added the stamped oval piece to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. So handsome, right?!
