Treat Time for Manly Monday

Yes, it’s Monday again. Today, I have a masculine version of a collar card. I used the Treat Time stamp set for this card. I think it’s bright and happy!

The Broadway Bound Designer Paper has definitely become one of my favorites .

 

Design Notes for Treat Time Card:

I love how the collar fold lets you see both sides of a sheet of Designer Paper. If you follow my blog, you recall that I used the collar fold a few days ago. (Click here to see that post.) This time, I placed the fold on the side of the card, rather than the top. The opening allowed me some space to heat emboss the Happy Birthday sentiment. I added some Black Shimmer Ribbon and still felt it needed just a little more pop. Since there were gold circles on the designer paper, I punched out a few more from some Gold Foil Sheet with a 1/2″ Circle Punch. That did it for me.

While I had that great paper out, I used some to create a very cool envelope decoration. I think this will make anyone feel special.

Collar Fold for Fun Fold Friday

This week’s fold is probably just about the easiest one I can think of. I’m going to show you the collar fold. And – head’s up – I’m also doing a collar fold for Manly Monday.

Isn’t this cute? And, truly, it’s so easy.

Design Notes for Collar Fold Card:

Here’s how to create a collar fold.

  • Stamp sentiment on the background piece.
  • On the Designer paper, find the center of the side where you want the collar opening to expose the sentiment.
  • Cut down about 1/2″ inch and fold back. If the sentiment is not exposed, cut down a little further.

I used the corner rounding part of the Envelope Punch Board to round the corners. After that, I placed a Glue Dot under each collar part.

Some ribbon and Gold Faceted Gems made it look like a blouse!
