Hello friends and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing more elegant masculine themed cards featuring the Tux stamp set from Brutus Monroe. I absolutely love this stamp set and think that it could be used for a wide variety of occasions! If you are looking for a really classic and timeless stamp set to add to your collection for future masculine themed cards, I'd highly recommend this one.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from black cardstock. Using the Diagonal Stripes with Window die from Pinkfresh Studio, I cut the background frame from black cardstock. I placed a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of light gray cardstock behind the frame. Using the Gilded Holiday paper pack from Whimsy Stamps, I cut a piece of the gold and black polka dot paper to fit inside the window. I stamped the tuxedo in Versamark ink on black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I fussy cut the tuxedo out and adhered it to the left side of the card using 3M foam adhesive. I stamped the sentiment "you're a classic" using the You're A Classic stamp set and coordinating dies from Honey Bee Stamps in Memento Black ink on white cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut the sentiment out. I adhered the sentiment to the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a couple white sequins randomly to the card for texture.
Here is the second tuxedo card I created using the same Brutus Monroe stamp set:
The base of this A2 sized card is made from black cardstock. For the first mat, I used a piece of paper from the Gilded Holiday paper pack from Whimsy Stamps. I adhered this black, gold and white striped paper directly to the card base. I cut a 4 " x 3" piece of black cardstock and stamped polka dots over it in Versamark ink. I heat embossed the polka dots with black embossing powder to give it a subtle shine and pattern. I adhered the black rectangle to the center of the card at a slight angle. I stamped the tuxedo in Versamark ink on white cardstock and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I fussy cut the tuxedo out and adhered it to the right side of the card using 3M foam adhesive. I stamped the words "happy birthday" in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock. I used the coordinating die to die cut the sentiment out and adhered it to the card using foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a couple gold sequins to the card for added dimension and sparkle.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
