The True Gentleman suite on pages 44 and 45 in the Occasions catalog is an absolutely perfect collection to make dashing masculine cards. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. The richness of the Tranquil Tide with Night of Navy is elegant and smart. The punch makes multiples a snap and the buttons bring it all together. I have made several already and I am just getting started! These cards feature lines I scored using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to add a little extra to the Tranquil Tide Strip. I used Fast Fuse to glue it down due to the added dimension of the button. And the final perfect little detail is adding glue with the Fine Tip Glue Pen to the lenses of the glasses to make them shine like glass. I’ve included a close up photo for you. I am entering this in the Watercooler Wednesday WWC153 – Gail’s Masculine “Anything Goes” challenge. Since it’s a suite that’s new to me, I’m also adding it to the Just Add Ink challenge, too!
A big thank you to my mother, Jean, for gifting this suite to me for my Birthday – I love it!
