Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’m going to share a masculine … or “earthy” card today that highlights the Beauty of the Earth Suite. You’ll see the Designer Paper, Dies and stamp set which will bring this card to life. Today’s my brothers birthday so I decided this was the perfect set for his card ….
The card showcases the Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper, in fact, it is the pattern shown above as the front piece…. I will show you a close up further down the post. It also highlights the dies …
It’s so easy to make a beautiful card using this suite … the designer paper creates depth, making you feel as if you are looking at the entire forest as it fades the farther away you get. The entire package of designer paper is just amazing!! Look at how bold and beautiful these colors are …. and for every season!
Let’s take a closer look at the watercolor effect they created on this designer paper ….
As you look from top to bottom the fade effect gets darker and the trees don’t have detailed definition but the watercolor look … even has “droplets” of color !
So Stampin’ Up! did all the work on the background of my card, so all I had to do was die cut the tree, stamp the greeting, and then die cut that (because that piece is included in the dies as well)!!
I finished off the card by die cutting the bottom piece and wrapping it with the White Bakers Twine to add a little texture, and to pull some white across the bottom. Nice balance.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card, this is only the first of many I have to share with you.
Thank you for checking in on me today, and have yourself an amazing weekend!!
