Card Details

You’ll find the “A Good Man” stamp set on page 147. Three beautifully sketched masculine images are accompanied by 8 greetings. Although the stamp set doesn’t include a birthday greeting I easily added one from another stamp set extending its versatility.


The products in the Come Sail Away Suite provide the perfect nautical touch for this image. I coupled the designer paper with the baker’s twine for added texture. The single loop bow is easy to create and I’ll teach you how in today’s video.


Two simple score lines and a separate piece of cardstock are all that’s required for this fun fold. The trick to propping up the easel is by creating a ‘stopper’ which is represented here by the greeting strip.


Change up the stopper area with punches images like flower or even embellishments like buttons or faceted gems. Anything with a little height will work!
