Handmade card featuring the Perennial Lavender Suite Collection by Stampin' Up!, available in the USA at StampinSavvy.com/Shop

❤️ Hi crafty friend! This week, enjoy making a masculine card with the new PERENNIAL LAVENDER Suite of coordinating products, our February Savvy Suite Showcase.

While florals are typically considered ‘feminine’, this card is designed to give a MAN!

In fact this was made with my step-dad in mind (although I think my step-mom would love it, as well)… wooHOO for savvy versatility! Who will you give it to???

WANT TO MAKE THIS? YOU CAN!

Follow these simple step-by-step instructions…

  • LOST LAGOON CARDSTOCK
    • Die-cut with second-to-largest die from PERENNIAL POSTAGE Bundle.
    • Keep on your die-cutting platform and move die in about an inch to the right (or left) to cut a piece that is narrower than the die.
    • Match die to cut piece at top and bottom; die-cut a second time… you’ve now created a custom size! (Remaining narrow piece is scrap for another project)
    • Adhere Very Vanilla stamped piece on top, centered; adhere die-cut pieces at bottom.

SAVVY RIBBON TIPS!

{tips shown in photo above}

  • Wrap Lost Lagoon 1/4″ Bordered Ribbon around a bottle of glue (or anything about 4″ in diameter) and tie a square knot in front; trim ends, then cut ribbon in half at the back of the bottle.
    • Wrap ribbon around the Lost Lagoon Cardstock die-cut piece (with knot centered on the front over the die-cut branches) and adhere to the back with tape or adhesive (above photo-on right).
    • This is a savvy way to get a great-looking, easy-to-tie knot BEFORE you adhere it!
  • Adhere panel to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Embellish with Neutrals Adhesive-Backed Sequins (copper)… done!
