Have you used the Tree Rings background stamp? I don't what it is, but I love this stamp. I'm using it on my card for today.
We made this card at my November class. I think it's a great fall card and maybe a little masculine if needed.
Start with a Soft Suede card base. It's cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. Stamp the front with the Tree Rings background stamp. I stamped it in Early Espresso. While you are at it, stamp a rectangle of Soft Suede measuring 2 x 3 3/4 with the Tree Rings, too. You'll need it later.
Run a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 2 x 4 1/4 through the Big Shot with the Woodlands embossing folder. Layer on a piece of Early Espresso that's 2 1/8 x 4 1/4. Adhere to the lower part of the card front.
From the stamped rectangle, cut the row of hearts and the "for you" using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. You will need to trim the row of hearts. Save the extra hearts for the inside of the card. Add to the vanilla panel.
Using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, cut two detailed leaves from Lemon Lime Twist card stock. Cut one solid leaf from Soft Suede. Crumple the suede leaf in your hand to add texture. Sponge around the outside with Early Espresso ink. Place the leaf on the Versamark pad. Press it in places, but not all over. Sprinkle with the copper embossing powder and heat with the Heat Tool. Layer these leaves on the card. Add a bow of Copper Ribbon.
For the inside of the card, use a sentiment from the Soft Sayings Card Kit. Add some of the hearts cut of from the heart banner. Stamp the detailed leaf in Early Espresso and the inside in Lemon Lime Twist.
The sentiment makes this a birthday card, but it could be for any occasion with a different sentiment. Don't forget about the Soft Sayings Card Kit stamp set just because it's part of a kit. Use it any time!
Thanks for sharing your time with me today. I appreciate it so much.
