Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Well Suited Card

Hi  Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited:

The recipe:

Card base: Smokey Slate 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Extra front panel: Smokey Slate 4-1/4 x 5-1/2

Mat: Night of Navy 3-1/2 x 4-7/8

Art piece: Whisper White die cut with the Stitched Rectangle Die measuring 3-3/8 x 4-3/4

Embossed with the Brick and Mortar EF

The details:

  • Die cut the  bowties and the tie knot using the DSP from the Well Suited DSP
  • Emboss the bowties and knots with the Tasteful Textile EF
  • Die cut 3 extra  bowties and knots for each  bowtie from Whisper White card stock
  • Stack and glue 3 white  bowties together topping the stack with the DSP bowtie
  • Repeat with the knots and then glue the knots onto the corresponding bowtie

The sentiment:

  • Stamp your sentiment from the Handsomely Suited stamp set with Versamark Ink
  • Then stamp the sentiment immediately into Night of Navy Ink
  • Sprinkle Clear Emboss Powder over the sentiment and then heat set with your Heat Gun
  • Die cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Die

Putting the card together:

  • Wrap a piece of Basic Gray Bakers Twine from the Well Suited Twine Pack around the Smokey Slate Panel
  • Adhere this panel to the front of the card
  • Adhere your embossed art piece to the Night of Navy mat
  • Attach this panel to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Attach your six  bowties onto the art piece with Glue Dots
  • Adhere your sentiment onto the front of the card with Dimensionals

Finishing touches:

  • Add a double Basic Gray Twine bow from the Well Suited Twin Pack to the left of the sentiment with a glue dot and your are done
