My father’s 88th birthday is coming up this weekend so I made him this card. When we were growing up, Dad loved to go hunting deer, duck, goose, pheasant, squirrels, etc., so I thought it only appropriate to use the pheasant from the Walk in the Wild stamp set for his birthday card. I CASE’d my card from Pam Steckham at http://stampininthesun77.blogspot.com/2013/09/stampin-ups-walk-in-wild-for-happy.html
- Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla
- Burlap ribbon
- Wood Grain embossing folder
- Labels collection framelits
- die cutting machine (i.e. Cuttlebug, Big Shot, etc.)
- Ink: Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz marker
- Adhesive, dimensionals, Sticky tape
Assembling the card:
- Cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold to form a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card.
- Cut a piece of Early Espresso cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″ and run through the Cuttlebug using the Woodgrain folder
- Next I cut a piece of burlap ribbon about 7 1/2″ and put 1/4″ sticky tape along the long edges of the ribbon. Adhere to card front.
- Adhere this to the card base.
- Using the Labels collection framelits (I used the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th framelits in the set), cut largest one from Crumb Cake, then cut the next smallest from Cajun Craze.
- Stamp image on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using the smallest of the three framelits chosen for this project.
- Using the Pear Pizzazz marker, color in the grass.
- Adhere the layers together then using dimensionals, adhere to the front of the card.
- On the inside of the card I used a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock for my greeting.
This is a quick and easy masculine card to make! Thanks for stopping by!
