M asculine card perfect for a thank you, birthday, or congratulations using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Just Jade Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" of light woodgrain design from In Good Taste Designer Series Paper
- 2-1/2" x 6" of ferns and pine boughs scattered on light green background design from Flowers For Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper
- 3-1/4" x 5-1/2" from Very Vanilla Cardstock
Adhere the strip of Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper diagonally across the piece of In Good Taste Designer Paper so the upper right side is about 1" down from the upper right corner and the bottom left side is about 1" up from the lower left corner. Use Paper Snips to trim off excess Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper on either side.
Cut two pieces of Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color 1/4" Ribbon each 5" long.
Lay one piece of ribbon across the designer paper layers at an angle so it covers the top seam between the two pieces of designer paper. Flip the layers over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Lay the other piece of ribbon across the designer paper layers at an angle so it covers the bottom seam between the two pieces of designer paper. Flip the layers over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add Stampin' Seal to the back of the In Good Taste Designer Paper rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Just Jade card.
Mount the large, single pine tree image from the Rooted In Nature Set on Block I. Ink up the tree trunk using the brush tip of the Cinnamon Cider Marker. Ink up the foliage using the brush tip of the Just Jade Marker. BEFORE STAMPING, use the brush tip of the Shaded Spruce Marker to randomly thump specks of dark green all around on the foliage of the tree image. Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink. Stamp it in the center of the Very Vanilla rectangle so the top of the tree is about 3/4" from the top of the rectangle.
If desired, use the fine tips of the Markers to color in any areas of the trunk or foliage that need more color.
Mount the "You are wonderful" sentiment from the Rooted In Nature Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Just Jade Ink Pad. Stamp it just below the tree image on the vanilla rectangle so it is centered side to side and the top of the loop on the "d" touches the bottom of the tree trunk. Very slightly move the stamp down and to the right a tiny amount. Stamp again to create a shadow effect on the sentiment.
Pick out the stitched label die that cuts out a label that is 2-5/8" x 4-7/8" from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Put it on top of the stamped vanilla rectangle on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool so the tree and sentiment are centered. Run through the tool.
Tip: You may have to press fairly firmly along the edges of the die to pop the cut out loose.
Adhere the label cut out to the front of the card on the left side so it is centered top to bottom and about 3/8" from the left edge.
Cut a 3-1/4" piece of the Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color 1/4" Ribbon.
Slide one end of the ribbon under the ribbon already on the card front on the bottom edge of the Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper strip on the right side of the label cut out. Tie it in place using a half knot. Trim the ends.
