“I’m Just Ken” ~ Home Made Card

i'm just ken (from Barbie) Today is Ken’s day! Last week,  I posted about a super cute Barbie card that I made during a Live video.

I made a matching Ken card for today’s post.  At some of the Barbie movie premiers, I saw Ryan Gosling wearing these fabulous light-coloured suits, so I decided my Ken card should be in a Fresh Freesia suit.  Fresh Freesia is like a pink and purple combined today, and Ken wears it well.  I purposefully coloured his jacket to look tailored at the waist.

I used the stamp set as my Barbie post: Here’s to Love.  It is a wedding stamp set, but the bride and groom images were perfect for my Barbie and Ken cards.  See all the supplies I used at the end of this post.

Store (view here).

I also used the Radiating Stitches dies to cut out the little circle where I stamped “No. 1”.  If you watched the Barbie movie, you know this is a nod to the fact that Ken is quite upset at being a No.2 to Barbie. I also got a little bit of extra blue ink on the circle when I stamped it, but I decided it added to the look and just left it.

The greeting comes from the He’s the Man stamp set. The greeting “hello handsome” also features a moustache image.  To omit the moustache,  I laid scrap paper over the image and then inked up the greeting with Blueberry Bushel ink.  I then removed the piece of scrap paper and stamped the greeting.  I then punched out the greeting with the Double Oval Punch from Stampin’ Up!, which you can see on the list of supplies below.

I’m going to enjoy giving this card to my handsome #1 husband!
