The Perfect Gentleman - Making Handmade Cards

Hi there and Happy Friday!
I'm here again to show you a few cards that I made using a new kit coming out soon from Making Handmade Cards. The kit is called Perfect Gentleman and WOW is it chocked full of wonderful digi paper, sentiments and elements too! I made two of these cards basically the same and one a bit different. These cards will be for sale in my Etsy Shop real soon!
You might remember seeing this nifty little frame on my brother's birthday card a few posts back. That one was blank, but this one sports this little hefty gentleman looking a bit down I must say, but I do believe he is surely an "Old Chap" as the sentiment says. LOL!
The sentiments are available in several colors of backgrounds and sayings so you can choose just the right one for your card.
Next I chose a rather thin fellow that is looking dapper in his top hat and walking cane and wishing the receiver a Happy Birthday!
I just cut out 3 sentiments and glued them together to make one large sentiment block, then added a bit of black sheer ribbon to spiff it up a bit.
Here's the last card I made using 3 different papers from the kit. I used my Nesties to cut out the circles and then stitched around the outside edge of the card for a bit of added interest.
This card would be for that dashing gentleman in your life, maybe to wish him Happy Birthday or maybe just to tell him how much you love him!
I started all 3 cards on a Kraft Paper base and then just used the digi kit to complete each one. What a neat little set of cards to give to your Mom, sister or girlfriend as a quick, cute gift. Everyone loves handmade.....right?
Okay, that's all for me for now. Hey, did you sign up for my blog hop giveaway back on Monday's post yet? Well you'd better hurry up then 'cause I'll be drawing first thing in the morning and you just might be my lucky winner! See ya then! HUGS!

Pin It!
