The June SOTM is perfect for the generally neglected masculine cards.Wonderful Friend D1422 is a great set of 9 stamps. When I started creating this card, I had no plans of using the obvious "Father's day tie". However, things don't always turn out how you think they will. I have moved my stamping room (SUCH a huge mess) downstairs and ran across our display boards from the CTMH convention in 2001 that had been tucked away in a corner. This was my first year of teaching at the CTMH annual convention. There was this old card pattern that I hadn't used since then...and guess what...PERFECT for the tie. The more I played, the more I liked the card, pictured both closed and open.
Here are the measurements in case you want to make one of your own. Card size is 51/2 by 8 1/4. Score at 2" and 4 3/4". I used the new Passages paper packet, which was kind of the obvious choice. I wish you all a wonderful Father's Day and I'll see you in the beginning of July for the next SOTM blog hop! Now hop on over to Sarita Schraeder's blog to see what fun things she did with this stamp set!
Remember, the June SOTM is only available until June 30, 2010! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even FREE!
