The Beauty of the Earth DSP and Best Year stamp set combine to create this large-format 5×7 masculine thank you card. Special men in our lives deserve special cards. See how I shared my gratitude with my father in this fall-themed Thank You card. This design easily morphs into a masculine birthday card and would be perfect for a Father’s Day card.
Big Thanks = Big Card
While a regular 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ card is nice for most cards, sometimes you just need something that makes a statement. I designed this card to be an A7 5×7″ card and scaled up one of my favorite fun folds. Even with the extra width, I still needed to keep the vertical strips at just 1″ wide. I searched high and low for coordinating paper and ended up loving the dreamy blue back to the leaf paper from the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper collection. A brushed copper was the perfect compliment to the earthy tones in the DSP.
The Perfect Sentiments
For masculine cards, I look for bold greetings with strong typefaces. I keep coming back to the Best Year stamp set for its awesome sentiments. The Thank You is made up of two parts. You can choose to have the first sentiment on the outside and the second on the inside. Or, as I did, combine them into one on the inside. The extra size on this card gives you plenty of room to use both, and still have space to add your own greetings.
I also opted to add an additional sentiment on the left side. The typeface on this one, also from the Best Year stamp set, matched nicely to the Thank You on the right. For the outside of the card, I thought the Handsomely Suited stamp set had a nice wish, without being too Father’s Day focused. I doubled up those stamps as well and they fit perfectly inside the same Stitched So Sweetly dies.
