I’ve really enjoyed playing with the Dad Jokes stamp set. Today I paired it with the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper and Buttons to create this dapper, yet corny, card.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Early Espresso card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″ (2 pieces: one for a layer and one for the inside of the card)
  • True Gentleman DSP cut to 5″ x 3.75″, then cut diagonally from corner to corner
  • Early Espresso CS cut to
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to

Stamped with the Dad Jokes stamp set:

  • two sentiments in Early Espresso ink onto the small Very Vanilla CS layer
  • scissors in Tranquil Tide ink between the two sentients

Colored using a Blender Pen:

  • scissors – smeared the existing ink to fill in the image very lightly

Assembled the card:

  • folded and burnished the score line in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Very Vanilla CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • True Gentleman DSP glued onto Very Vanilla CS layer
  • sentiment layer glued onto the Early Espresso CS layer
  • Early Espresso CS layer glued onto the DSP and Very Vanilla CS layer
  • 3 buttons adhered to the DSP and Very Vanilla CS layer using Mini Glue Dots
  • remaining Very Vanilla CS glued to the inside of the card base
