Smokey Slate Colour Creations

Hi Stampin' Friends!

Tonight we are showing off our Smokey Slate creations. This soft grey colour is a great part of the Neutrals range.

Here I have teamed it up with one of the new In Colours - Fresh Freesia.

I cut some Smokey Slate cardstock and ink-embossed it with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. I then cut out the jacket with the Suit and Tie dies. And I didn't forget to add a little breast pocket with the help of the dies!

I folded a Fresh Freesia cardbase (A5 folded in half), and diecut a Fresh Freesia collar with the Suit and Tie dies. The tie is diecut out of plain Smokey Slate cardstock. 

The "happy birthday" sentiment is from Timeless Tulips. I used Smokey Slate ink on a scrap of Fresh Freesia cardstock.

I had a lot of fun making this masculine birthday card, and it was a quick and easy card for someone dear. Head on over to Cathy's blog to see what the other creatives have shared tonight!


  1. Great texture on the jacket, Su! This is a fun card for a special guy in your life.

  2. What a dapper card Su -I love these colours together and how you've made this new InColour work so well on a masculine card. Thank you for your Smoky Slate inspiration in the AWH Colour Creations showcase this week!

  7. A great card Su. Love your colour combination - Fresh Freesia looks so good with Smoky Slate. And the way you created the "fabric" for the jacket is very clever and looks so good. xxx
