I don’t know about you, but it can be difficult for me to make a masculine card. Occasionally they pop right out, but generally I have to really think about it. I have found a stamp set that is a great resource for masculine cards. The Rooted In Nature set is just perfect in my opinion for rugged, nature, masculine cards. Today’s card is for my sweet husband’s birthday. Although I did not put birthday on the front.
I paired the trees with the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper. If you saw yesterday’s post, it was using the Nature’s Poem DSP as well. And it was a totally different look!!
To get the effect I did for the trees, I colored them with the Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers. The center front tree is full strength and the others are repeated without re-inking. I did do a second re-ink. You get three stampings with one inking. The third is very light. I hope you will play with this technique and let me know what you think of it.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will come back tomorrow. All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.
