Today I thought I would make a masculine birthday card. I wanted to use the Country Living stamp set, but as I went along, I envisioned the Thoughtful Branches stamp set, which is still available from Stampin' Up while supplies last.
Here is how my card turned out:
On a 3 1/4 by 3 3/4" whisper white piece, three trees were stamped from the stamp set "Thoughtful Branches". Marina Mist ink and a scallop circle created the sky. Two little cardinals landed in the trees near the truck, probably waiting for the apple load it was carrying.
The cut out truck was placed in front of the trees, and some applies were placed in the cargo - a few fell on the ground and sentiment. Some Wink of Stella was applied to parts of the car and the apples.
On a separate Whisper White panel 3 3/4 by 1 5/8" a background was stamped with Crumb Cake and the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. The boots were adhered near the top, and the guitar angles at the bottom and adhered with dimensionals.
Both panels were layered with striped Real Red DSP and separated from each other with a 1/8" strip of Real Red card stock.
The sentiment is from "Happy Happenings.
