This is the last card that I made for the upcoming auction, which will be held this month at the Assisted Living Facility that my daughter works at. I hope they do as well as they did last year!
Of course this card was made for a man, so I brought out my tried and true set, Lovely As A Tree! This time I remember to take a picture of the inside of the card too!
I'm always so happy with how well the cards turn out when using this stamp set too. I did use a retired embossing folder called Wood Grain, but I felt it would go better with the tree than the Hardwood background stamp. I did light sponge it with ink the bring out the grains better. Here is a picture of the inside. I also stamped the envelope with this same image and colored it in too.
Here is what I used:
Stamp sets: Lovely As A Tree and Flourishing Phrases
Card stock: Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla
Inks: Jet Black Staz-On, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso and Soft Sky
