AYSI252 Dapper Dad's Day

Hi stampers!  Yay, it's Friday and the start of the weekend!  It's also the start of a new As You See It challenge with a masculine theme:


I saw a card recently (you can see it here) that had an interesting engineering facet to it and I wanted to try it out!  Here's what it looks like from the top....four panels that intersect, yet fold flat to create a standard-sized card:

I created mine a bit differently than she did; I had the basic idea in my head but needed some assistance from my brother the engineer!  He gave me the final push, I adapted the sizes to fit a standard envelope, and here we go!  Each panel was covered with some DSPs, and on the slightly larger panels I added some embellishments and stamping!

Here are some closeups:

The papers are all from the Original 6x6" pad by Authentique; the stamped images are from Guy Greetings, and I used various dies and some copper metallic cardstock from last year's holiday catalog too!  Since neither John nor I have any dads left, I'll have to see to whom I will send it!  Maybe my brother, LOL!  Hopefully, I'll make another one in this style and maybe post a tutorial!  And since this has lots of layers, I am entering it in the Always Fun Challenge too!

I hope you'll find some inspiration to create a masculine card this week...they're always a challenge for us stampers, aren't they?  Be sure to check out the As You See It blog to see what the DT created, then share yours with us too!  Thanks for popping by!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

WOWzers, now this is an interesting card, LeAnne! I love the masculine paper you used and all those cool images! I seen this style of card on FB the other day and passed right on by it. I think your brother would love this for Father's Day! TFS! Can't wait for the tutorial! Happy Friday....enjoy the rain today!

Besides loving all your wonderful papers, and images, it's like looking into a proper gentleman's closet, LeAnne! How fun!

This is just fantastic, and I love it! Very unique and clever design and I like all those great papers and embellishments you chose! I'd love to see a tutorial for this, I've never seen anything quite like it! NJ!

This must have taken some time. Well executed!

Lisa Elton said...

Wowza, this is so creative! I like all of the papers and elements you've combined. Just terrific, LeAnne!

LeAnne!!! I love this card. I will be attempting this in the near future, as I start a new job on 06/28 and will be supporting the CEO, CDO, and a group of engineers. They will appreciate the design of this card. Excellent job!!

This is so clever LeAnne - I've never seen anything like it before! I love the mix of papers and detailing - this is such a special card and I can think of many men who like to know how things work that would be fascinated by it!

Jan Clothier said...

Oh wow! That is fabulous! It's a fold I'd forgotten about but then, I've never seen one as lovely as this. YOu've got me thinking!

Bonnie said...

Wow! I'm not good at fancy folds, but this is something to try. Hope for a tutorial soon. Love your papers and all the masculine images! A very special Father's Day card!
