True Gentleman Suite Birthday Card: Truly Masculine [Tutorial]

Truly Tailored Brother

Hello Paper Crafters!! I created this True Gentleman Suite Birthday Card for my little brother, Dale. At 6’ 4” he’s not “little” any more. His birthday is May 1. He has a lovely family and I am proud to call him my brother. I just love the True Gentleman suite of products. It’s my favorite masculine suite ever!! I knew that I would put this suite to good use. The Night of Navy Corduroy ribbon is so touchable. The DSP has fun images like mustaches, bow ties, glasses and patterns reminiscent of men’s dress shirts. The Tailored Tag punch works great with this suite but I have seen some great projects on Pinterest where it is used to create amazing backgrounds with DSP.
