If it’s Monday, it’s a masculine card. Today I am showing a Congratulations card I made for my friend Lee, who achieved Top Salesman for the country in his company! Way to go, Lee! Even though it doesn’t sound very masculine, I chose the stamp set from the Darling Label Punch Box Kit to use for this card.


Unfortunately, Lee may see this card here on line before it reaches his mailbox. Sorry.



Design Notes for Darling Label Punch Card:

Don’t you love the color combination? I was inspired by the colors in this piece of Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper. Then I added the Merry Merlot Card Stock to emphasize the masculine intent of the card.


This card was pretty simple once I selected my papers. I used the Layering Squares Framelits to create the squares and opening. Here’s a little tip for you that will help you save paper. I call it “Hidden Punching”. It work with punching and cutting out with dies. Just cut from a piece of paper that will be hidden by other layers. Here’s what I did on this card.

The piece of Merry Merlot was the perfect background for the label. I cut it from the middle of the Merry Merlot card stock layer. No one is the wiser, well, until now.
