This is the third and final Dapper Dad card that I'll be sharing from the team training day on Saturday. I love this one, it's so easy and incredibly effective. The Argyle Embossing folder has been used to emboss two strips of Night of Navy card stock, and have been placed onto a Very Vanilla card blank so it looks like a cardigan. How clever! The bow tie stamped image was stamped with Early Espresso ink onto Crumb Cake card stock, and three of the smaller Silver Buttons were placed underneath in a row to look like buttons on a shirt. The sentiment which reads "It's your birthday, Oh, What fun! Blow out your candles one by one!", has been stamped onto Crumb Cake in Early Espresso ink, and punched out using the Decorative Label punch. Bakers Twine was tied around the label, and attached to the bottom of the card with dimensionals.

If you've been following my Dapper Dad posts this week, I hope you've liked all the cards, and are inspired to use it yourself. It's £16.95 for the wood mount stamp set (129195) or just £13.95 for the clear mount stamp (129198). These stamps are so versatile and can be used for lots of different cards. You don't have to just limit them to masculine cards, at the training day on Saturday one of my fellow demonstrators suggested "blinging up" the watch using pearls or rhinestones for a ladies watch, I thought that was a great idea.
