Dapper Golfing Dad

I love how interactive Facebook is!
Last week (or so) I posted a question on
what Sport you'd like to see in a card...
Tanya Sasaki commented 'Golf'...
So, thanks Tanya -
HERE is my card from YOUR Suggestion!!
(What do you think? 
Leave me a comment and let me know!!)
I don't golf and neither does my husband (yet - he keeps threatening to learn - lol).  When I think of Golfing I think funny argyle pants, shoes, polo and bow tie...
a rich man's game....
rich men and women who may dress a little funny (lol).
I also think about all that beautiful Green Grass they play on.
So with our In-color Gumball Green card stock as the card base, the Prints Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack (Spring Mini) and this pretty patterned paper!
 
Embossing this Dapper Dad stamp set with my Versa Mark stamp pad, Black embossing powder and heat gun (Idea Book & Catalog), it is sharp, retro and cool -
shiny like patent leather!
'Dad' in Argyle from the 'Loved Ones' retired stamp set fit soooo perfectly - I couldn't resist stamping it in Gumball Green ink on the top of this Dapper Dad trio.


Wrapping it up with our Stitched Satin Gumball Green ribbon is sharp and a little metro - kind of like this card! 
Using our Glossy White card stock, punching three 1-3/8" circles and running it through the Big Shot and our Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder so that the dots are De-Bossed (fancy lingo for going in vs. embossing out - lol).  It's shiny with these little divots - just like a little golf ball!
 
The Trio of three balls to the side of the three manly images is cohesive to the eye and odd numbers are appealing to the subconscious - cool, huh?!?!
The subtle raised 'golf balls' are popped up with our Stampin' Dimensional adhesive - so easy and fun!
My cousins play golf often... maybe my husband will join them, lol.  I love that the manly look can be achieved without tools or fish.. a fun way to change up a masculine card!

What man would YOU give this card too?
Leave me a comment and let me know.
Thanks for coming by and taking a look!
Please feel free to SHARE this with your family, friends, facebook, twitter and/or pinterest!  I'm on ALL of those places - find a moment and Follow ME!!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
