Father's Day is sneaking up on us! It's Sunday, June 17th….this Sunday!! As you have heard time and time again, this stamp set, Lovely As a Tree (p. 84) (now available in clear-mount!) is so versatile and well-loved….and perfectly suited for those difficult masculine/manly cards for any occasion.
I think the simplicity of this card will suit a father or any man in your life. You can use any background paper, layer the tree and add a greeting for whichever occasion. Teeny Tiny Wishes is perfect for most occasions!
Just stamp the tree in Black Stazon ink and color in however you like. I used a Blender Pen and various inks straight from the ink pad. I started with a little yellow (the new Summer Starfruit) because someone used to always say use a little yellow with any green. Then I colored in with the new Gumball Green and Old Olive. And there is nothing "artistic" about coloring in the greenery on the tree….just scribble on some color…really! It will look fine! The tree trunk is Soft Suede to match the card base and layers. The designer paper background layer is the new Comfort Cafe #126898. If you don't have the new papers yet, I'm sure you will be able to find something suitable in your stash. Well Worn from last year would be great…and don't overlook the subtle patterns on the back of the more dramatic sides of any designer paper.
