The Tree

I’ve entitled the second card for our June Stamp Camp, simply The Tree.  The actual set is entitled “Look Up to Father.”  I feel this stately image speaks for itself.

Tree birthday 1This birthday card was designed for a male, and has lots of texture and detail.  Mossy Meadow, one of the 2014 – 2016 In Colors was used for the card base.  Baked Brown Sugar cs became our tree trunk with Soft Suede ink applied to the Woodgrain Embossing Folder .  Texture was added to the Very Vanilla CS beneath the tree layer. with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  Paper piercing was added to the 4 corners of the tree layer and the center was cut out with one of the Starburst Framelits and sponged in Soft Suede.  The tree was stamped in Mossy Meadow and rests on cs below the starburst circle.  As a finishing touch, the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch was used on Mossy Meadow, and Linen Thread was added in an “X” formation.  Note how stately the tree appears on the envelope below the card.  The greeting that comes with the stamp set is shown below. 

Happy Fathers Day 1This greeting is perfect for Father’s Day, a birthday, or any occasion for a respected Dad or Stepdad.  Sadly, this stamp set will no longer be available after June 1st which is when the Celebrate the Everyday mini catalogue ends.

I thought it would be interesting to carry the paper piercing onto the message sheet.  You can barely see the triangular piercing in the corners which matches the card front.  A line of piercing was also added to the starburst die cut which was left from the card front.  We will be using the Paper Piercing Pack which makes paper piercing a breeze.

This is the second card we will be creating at the June Stamp Camp.  To repeat the dates and times:   Thursday, June 5 and Friday, June 6 from 2 to 9 PM; and Saturday, June 7 from 9 AM to 4 PM. If you have a conflict with these dates/times, please let me know, and we can arrange an alternate date/time – or you can purchase a kit. A kit includes all the materials for the 4 cards, and the stamping, embossing, die cutting, punching, etc. has been done for you. I supply everything except the adhesive.  The kit currently costs the same as attending the stamp camp – $12.00. Such a deal!

Give me a call, or send me an E-mail if you have any questions.

Blessings, Rosemary – 630/759-3089 –
