Well Suited Thank You Card is handmade with Stampin’ Up! products from the Well Suited Suite. This is a fun set to use for paper crafting. At first glance it appeared very corporate (which I like), but when I started to use the pieces and some creativity, I discovered that it is quite versatile, and I have enjoyed the projects I have made, including cards for attorneys and corporate positions.
The card base is navy, with a white panel on the inside for writing. I used navy ink on both of the necktie stamps from the Handsomely Suited stamp set and stamped them on a range of colors of cardstock. I tried to use realistic colors that we would see on neckties, and I think I did O.K. After stamping each tie, I cut it with the corresponding tie die from the Suit & Tie Dies, and arranged and adhered them on a piece of white cardstock. The middle tie is raised with Stampin’ dimensionals. I layered the white panel on a piece of the navy Well Suited Designer Series Paper, then adhered all layers to the card base.
I stamped the navy sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock, then layered it on a piece of navy. I tied a piece of Well Suited Twine in a bow and adhered it to the back of the sentiment layers, then added the sentiment layers to a piece of light blue card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The idea for the bow is from fellow demonstrator Heidi Collins, and I like how it peeks out from the layers. I then added the sentiment to the card and topped it off with a blue rhinestone.
