Masculine May Club

This month I decided to make masculine cards for Club.

I can't remember where I got the pattern for the little origami shirt on this first card. I've made it lots of times. Recently I made it for my son's basketball coach (I'll have to post a photo of that card). He always has the boys come to the games dressed up with ties so I thought it would be cute.
Colors: night of navy, daffodil delight and old olive
I texturized the card base using the Big Shot and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen. The Happy Father's Day greeting on the card below is from that set also.

I saw this tutorial by Susan Carlson a year ago and wanted to make it in a class ever since! I used Peach Parfait dsp since it will be retiring, and adapted my directions to use the Simply Scored Tool. It's really a fairly simple card. Susan has a pretty good tutorial, so I won't re-create the wheel.

Happy Stamping! Mary

Basketball Thank You Card

My son's frosh basketball coach always had the team dress in ties on game days, so I thought this would be an appropriate thank you card or him. It uses Concord Crush card stock and designer paper.
