Masculine Card, Lovely as A Tree, Wood Textures Paper, Stampin UP

Happy Saturday Guys!!! I’m hoping you will have a little crafting time this weekend and I decided this masculine card with the largest tree from the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set would be what’s on the menu.  I’ve seen a card lately where they used this stamp for the focal point of a card and thought I would put my own twist on it and make it a great masculine card for any occasion.  As you can see I grabbed the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper for the background, you know I love my Wood Textures Paper especially for masculine cards.
Masculine Card, Lovely as A Tree, Wood Textures Paper, Stampin UP
I used my Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the tree because I knew I would be coloring it in with my Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.  I grabbed my Crumb Cake Card Stock for the card base and sentiment, some Basic Black Card Stock for my first layer and to back my sentiment (which by the way came from the Lovely Wishes Stamp Set) and got busy.  I did use my the Largest Square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut my tree and the Largest Scalloped Square from the Layering Squares Framelits to back it with Basic Black Card Stock as well and popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals.  I’m betting you have the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set in your crafting area and if not, why, why, why I say!!!  It’s Stampin’ UPs oldest stamp set and that means it’s an all time favorite for sure.  I hope you enjoyed today’s card and it helped to get your creative juices flowing, I’ve listed all the measurements and supplies below to get you started.  Have a wonderful weekend and HAPPY CRAFTING!!!
