Making cards for the men in your life can be quite fun when you have in hand a stamp set apt for that purpose. Today I am sharing a card using a stamp set named Dapper Dad, which is perfect to create Father’s Day cards or other masculine projects.

I thought a simple card design would be right to showcase this fun set. I began by stamping the Irregular Grid Bold Prints over a card base with Strawberry Hybrid ink. Then I created the main panel of the card with a Snow Layering Paper rectangle. I stamped the argyle pattern image a few times using different colors of ink to create a partial background. Then I stamped the sentiments over that pattern with Intense Black ink.

I stamped the glasses and hat also with Intense Black ink over a piece of Snow Layering Paper. I colored the hat’s band with a red marker and then, I trimmed out the pieces with scissors. I adhered both pieces over the panel with foam tape. I adhered the panel over the card base using a piece of foam underneath just to give a bit of dimension. I also put Glossy Accents over the hat, glasses and the word “Dad” and I finished off the card with some enamel dots as embellishments.

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you got some inspiration to try making some masculine cards.
