I struggle somewhat with masculine cards.  Especially for other than a birthday.  It is hard to choose a design that would meet the needs of say a promotion, retirement, even graduation.  Today’s card could fit those categories.



I love these colors from the designer series paper!  The paper is the Country Club Designer Series Paper with the addition of Garden Green as the base and Poppy Parade as the stitched layer.

The layers and sentiment are from the So Sentimental Bundle.  The dies have been on back order and are now back in stock!!  Woohoo.  These dies are awesome.  They not only have three varied shapes for sentiments but also the stitched and scalloped layers for layering or large sentiments.

I went with the DSP as the focal point of the card and chose two complimentary patterns.  I added the Poppy Parade layer to break it up a bit.  I generally layer my sentiments, but this cute shape did not need it.  Especially with the bold prints behind it.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will give this layered card a try and share your version with me on my Facebook Page, Blue Line Stamping.
