Today’s card

I failed to post the one Father’s Day card I created.  So I am posting it a few days late.  The best part is that it is a Fun Fold / Gift Card Holder.  And with a change of the inside sentiment it could be for any manly occasion!  The star is the He’s All That stamp set and Dies.


Stampin' Up!, He's All That, Share A Milkshake, Jute Twine, Exposed Brick, Jackie Beers


Stamps and Dies

The starring stamp set is the He’s All That set.  All of the stamped images are from that set.  And the coordinating, but no longer a bundle, dies are the All That Dies.  Dies were used for the main sign shape as well as the arrow.  For some fun, I used the crosshatch die from the Share A Milkshake Dies for some added texture and color.


Extras are always needed but sometimes hard to see.  Especially in the photo.  The white layer is embossed using the Exposed Brick Embossing Folder.  Oh My!!  I really love the look of this and the different textures.  And I do apologize that you cannot see it in the photo.  Some of the other extras are the Rustic Metallic Dots that are scattered around.  They add an extra manly touch as they look sort of like a nail head in color.

The final Extra is the Jute twine.  This is a new pack of 2023-2025 In Color Jute Twine.  I used the Pebbled Path to match the card base and ink used.  I love the jute and how well it ties a bow.  But I will say that it is a bit fuzzy with the strands.  That is the nature of jute however.


This section was added last so I could share the Fun Fold and colors.  It can be a little difficult to make manly cards except in dull colors.  So I went through my colors seeing what would pair well with Pebbled Path.  It is new and I have not used it really.  Surprisingly it really popped with the Coastal Cabana.  So I went with that.  And I love the outcome!

The card design shows a good bit of the Pebbled Path card base.  After that it is mostly White and Coastal Cabana.  As I mentioned in the opening, this is a Fun Fold and Gift Card Holder.  Here is the open view:



The card base is a piece of Pebbled Path that is cut to 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  The White layer is 5 X 3 3/4 and embossed.  For the tri-fold Coastal Cabana you need a piece that is 4 1/4 X 11 and scored at 3, 6, & 9.  Accordion fold these pieces as shown in the photo.  The sections are even sizes with the exception of the last one which is 2 1/2.  Fold that one in and adhere with Tear & Tape for your gift card holder.

The only important thing to remember is to center and adhere the Jute Twine to the back of the accordion fold prior to adding it to the card.  The inside layers are 3 7/8 X 2 5/8 of Pebbled Path, and 3 3/4 X 2 1/2 of White.  Simply change the inside sentiment and you are ready to go for any manly occasion!
