I noticed that I have very few masculine greeting cards, so I took advantage of the Seize the Birthday challenge this week.
This is a nice, clean and simple sketch, but still has just the right amount of layers. I pulled out one of my favourite stamp sets - Lovely as a Tree - and used one of the tree stamps as the central focus of the card. I paired it with woodgrain embossed paper and a touch of Old Olive to tie it all together. Here's how it turned out:
The part that took the longest was fussy-cutting the tree. But I love the look of a cut-out stamped image! I popped it up to give the card some dimension and completed the card with a simple sentiment.
