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.

 

Rooted In Nature, 146482

 

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.
