Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Hope you all had a Happy Fourth of July weekend! For some … you have off of work as well (Me … I’m back at work in the candy store). The past two days I’ve shared some “pretty” cards, perfect for your bestie, sister, Mom or daughter …
Today, we’re going back to nature with the Beauty of Friendship bundle, now don’t get me wrong when I call this a masculine card, I know a few ladies who would LOVE this card …
The beautiful color pallet and thick borders just seem to be a bit more masculine than what I’ve been sharing lately. I simply followed the colors in the beautiful Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper, and yes, this one is on sale too!! Let me share some information with you …
Card Dimensions ….
- Night of Navy Card base is cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
- Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper is cut 5 1/4″ x 4″.
- Night of Navy for the die cut frame
- Early Espresso for the die cut tree
I used the 3rd and 5th dies from the Stitched Rectangle dies (I count from the center of the dies to the outside. Align them carefully by centering the smaller one inside the larger die, this will ensure your frame has equal sides.
While you are die cutting, use the small tree from the Beauty of Friendship bundle. The tree will be attached to the frame with our Glue Dots …
I used a greeting from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set. Because the “Thinking of You” stamp has more to the greeting, I used my Stampin’ Write Marker to color only the part of the verse I wanted and then die cut it with the rectangle die included in the Beauty of Friendship bundle.
I used glue dots to attach the greeting over the tree and slightly touching the frame. Then I used the Foam Adhesive Strips to the entire frame and attached it to the front of my card.
I really like the way the frame highlights this beautiful paper, yet allows the tree and greeting to stand out as well. I guess I would end up saying this could be a gender neutral card!!
