I really struggle with Man Cards so when I saw the In The Meadow Stamp Set, I though I need that set!!! It is the perfect masculine look. I have lots of family and friends who are outdoorsy so this is perfect!!!
I started with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ and I stamped the deer and trees with Basic Gray Archival Ink. I like the lighter look of gray over black for this card! You can always add in a little bit of the grass to fill in if you would like to. All of the images are from the In The Meadow Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. The greeting was stamped in Chocolate Chip from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set! I colored in the images with an Aqua Painter! I did the deer in Crumb Cake, the grass and leaves in Old Olive, and the tree trunk in Chocolate Chip. You can always make one of the deer a different color to off set them a little more. I’m really starting to like coloring with an Aqua Painter! I took a Crumb Cake card base and added a piece of the Corrugated Cardstock (4″ x 4″) with opposing corner touching the sides. I thought I would do an off set look rather than just layering it on there. I added the Very Vanilla to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This adds texture and dimension to the card but also makes for a smooth look on the corrugated paper. Love it!
I plan on making lots of these for Father’s Day, Birthdays, and maybe even Sympathy. If you would like to see this in action, check out my Video Tutorial below or by clicking here! Don’t forget to give this video a thumbs up if you liked and be sure to subscribe if your new!
