STB #11...

... meets the new Stamp Set "Dapper Dad".
My card today has been created for the challenge over at "Seize the Birthday".  I've been watching this site since it first started but have only managed to create a card now.  Very slack on my behalf, I know. 

When I saw the challenge this week, this set was the first that come to mind. This was the first set I purchased from the current Mini Catalogue when it first come out & it has only just seen ink.

As I wanted to give the card some depth, I decided to stamp the shoe image twice, the 2nd image onto scrap cardstock, fussy cut it & then adhere it to the top of the main panel with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I think it makes it stand out a little more, especially as the matching DSP tends to be a bright & a little in your face.  Don't you just love those shoes?  This is the perfect Stamp Set & DSP for the males in your life.

I also decided to break the middle section away from the DSP by adding the new Embossing Folder - Needlebpoint Border.  What a great little folder this is?  I didn't want the scallop edge at all, so I embossed along the edge of the stitching only.  I like the end result & how it breaks away from the DSP.

I love the fussy cutting and yes that DSP is a little in your face but so exciting as well. Great card for a special guy.
