My card today has been created for the challenge over at “Seize the Birthday“. I’ve been watching this site since it first started but have only managed to create a card now. Very slack on my behalf, I know.
When I saw the challenge this week, this set was the first that come to mind. This was the first set I purchased from the current Mini Catalogue when it first come out & it has only just seen ink.
As I wanted to give the card some depth, I decided to stamp the shoe image twice, the 2nd image onto scrap cardstock, fussy cut it & then adhere it to the top of the main panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think it makes it stand out a little more, especially as the matching DSP tends to be a bright & a little in your face. Don’t you just love those shoes? This is the perfect Stamp Set & DSP for the males in your life.
I also decided to break the middle section away from the DSP by adding the new Embossing Folder – Needlebpoint Border. What a great little folder this is? I didn’t want the scallop edge at all, so I embossed along the edge of the stitching only. I like the end result & how it breaks away from the DSP.

I love the fussy cutting and yes that DSP is a little in your face but so exciting as well. Great card for a special guy.
Great card for the men in our lives. I always struggle with ideas for this type of card but you've inspired me 🙂
