I love creating masculine cards! When I saw the SU In the Meadow stamp set- I knew I had to have it! I am sure you all peruse Pinterest as I do when I get a new stamp. I came across this card and liked how Lisa used circles to highlight the images and used the Work of Art stamp set to “color” the images of the trees and deer.
I modified my card by creating a mountainous background, adding an Early Espresso border on the deer image, embellishing it with Burlap and a candy dot, and using the SU Guy Greetings on the bottom of the card. My stamping classes chose between the Happy Father’s Day greeting or the Happy Birthday Greeting. We even conserved paper by cutting our circles (2″ and 2 1/2″) out of the Very Vanilla border on the front that is covered by the Crumb Cake card stock the mountains and greeting are stamped on:) Thankfully, both stamp sets are sticking around!
I used Soft Suede ink for the mountains, trees, deer, and greeting on the card. I stamped off once and then stamped the colors Tip Top Taupe and Wild Wasabi on the stamped images on the circles. The second stamp on the images was stamped again with that same “stamped off” ink so it was essentially stamped off twice.
