G reat masculine card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Crumb Cake Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Early Espresso Cardstock
- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" of wood cut ends design from Wood Textures 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper
- 3" square from Crumb Cake Cardstock
- 2 squares each 2-1/4" square from Crumb Cake Cardstock
Adhere the rectangle of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to the Early Espresso rectangle.
Cut two 4-1/2" pieces of 3/16" Braided Linen Trim.
Lay the trim pieces across the designer paper/cardstock layers so the pieces criss cross and are about 2-1/4" up from the bottom edge. Flip the layers over and fold the ends of the trim over. Adhere the ends of the trim in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add SNAIL to the back of the Early Espresso rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Crumb Cake card.
Mount the wood cut piece image from the Rooted In Nature Set on Block E. Ink it up with the Crumb Cake Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the large Crumb Cake square.
Mount the "thinking of you" sentiment from the Rooted In Nature Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Early Espresso Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the stamped wood cut image on the large Crumb Cake square.
Use Paper Snips to cut out the wood cut image by hand.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the cut out wood cut image to the left side of the card front so it is centered over the pieces of trim.
Mount the group of three leaves image from the Rooted In Nature Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Early Espresso Ink Pad and stamp it in the center of one of the smaller Crumb Cake squares. WITHOUT re-inking the stamp, stamp it again in the center of the other smaller Crumb Cake square.
Pick out the matching three leaf framelit from the Nature's Roots Framelits. Place one of the stamped three leaf images on the Cutting Pad on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the three leaf framelit on top so it is centered over the image. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Repeat to cut out the other three leaf image.
Adhere the three leaf cut outs to the card front so they stick out from the right side of the wood cut sentiment cut out, overlap each other a bit, and are tucked behind the trim pieces and stick out above and below the trim pieces.
Pick out a triple copper leaf from the Leaves Trinkets. Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it to the front of the card so the stem is tucked under the right side of the wood cut sentiment cut out and the leaves are pointing down and overlap the stamped three leaf images a bit.
Cut two 4" pieces of 3/16" Braided Linen Trim.
Lay the two pieces of trim together and tie a half knot in the center. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the trim knot to the right side of the wood cut sentiment cut out where it overlaps the trim pieces already on the card front.
