Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature

Today I hope we all take time to remember the men and women who died serving in the military to retain our freedom. They are heroes and not forgotten. I will never forget our RV trips to the Civil War sites and other war memorials.  I am thankful for parades and marching bands too.

My card for you today is a masculine card. I am playing at The Paper Players - PP395 - A Sketch Challenge from LeAnne



I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set, which will be available June 1. As a matter of fact, all of the products I used will be in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. 


My card base is Crumb Cake and my DSP is from the Wood Textures paper stack. It will be in the new catalog. I stamped the card base with one of the leaf stamps before I adhered the DSP. I used Crumb Cake ink full strength. 

I stamped the piece of wood in Crumb Cake and fussy cut it. I took a piece of burlap ribbon and glued it down with glue dots. I cut the sentiment with a die from Petals & More Framelits. It is stamped in Early Espresso. This is a quick and easy card, peeps!

For the inside, I stamped the tree in Crumb Cake, stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso.

I thought I'd add a little color with Mossy Meadow ink using an Aqua Painter. I rounded the corners of the Very Vanilla mat with the Detailed Trio Punch.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card. I enjoy making masculine cards.

  2. As you know, Karen, I love this set too! I like the way you've used neutrals. The wood grain and the burlap add interest and the touch of green on the inside it great. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.
