Masculine Pine Tree

  I'm totally digging these colors together.  They make a great guy card.  I made this one for some guy birthdays.  I usually try to come up with a different design for each card I need to mail out but I was in a time crunch and only had time to design one since all the paper, ink & accessories were already out I just made several.

  As always anything made with Lovely As A Tree is, well, lovely...though I might be biased since this is my card!  I'll let you be the judge.

  The base is Very Vanilla with a smaller layer of Very Vanilla on top.  The smaller layer was embossed with the square lattice embossing folder.  On top of the embossed layer is a length of black 5/8" satin ribbon held down with Crumb Cake brads. 

  The pine tree is just stamped in black Stazon and layered on Crumb Cake.  For the little Happy Birthday tag I stamped the sentiment and then just punched it out with Decorative Label punch.  It's not even a full piece of cardstock.  This is a great way to use up some smaller scraps.  All in all a very simple guy card but the texture from the embossing folder gives it some punch.

  This week is the first week of the new Occasions Mini catalog.  Check out my sidebar to see all the great new offerings!!  I placed my order the other morning and I can't wait to get the new goodies and play in my new and improved stamp room (it's coming along slowly but surely)!  Also, I have 2 spots still open for my every other month stamp club.  If you're in Richmond and want come out for some stamping fun just let me know and we can talk details.

  Thanks for looking!  Happy Stamping!
