Here is another card honoring k dunbrook. You may remember from yesterday's post that she was named Queen for the Day at SCS last Friday. Her reign lasts a week. A week isn't enough time to make cards that she inspires!
Here's Karen's card that I used for inspiration. I used a different embossing folder, stamps and sentiment and added a layer. Other than that, my card is pretty much the same.
To get the embossed frame, I used a thin wood plaque, with an oval cutout, from a craft store. I put my cardstock in the embossing folder, laid it on the plaque and ran it through the BIG GUY. Last time I tried this, it took several tries to get it to impress right. When I finally got it right, I drew the lines on the wooden piece so I would know exactly where to lay the embossing folder. This time I got it right first try. I was so excited!
After I got the embossing done, I cut a mask using the Ovals die and sponged inside the large oval with River Rock and Soft Suede. Leaving the mask in place, I stamped the trees in Always Artichoke. After they were all stamped, I used a Soft Suede marker to draw the trunks and branches.
The button came from my button can.
The Stampin' B's challenge from last week was to do a Masculine Card. I think this qualifies.
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Teeny, Tiny Wishes
Ink: River Rock, Soft Suede, Always Artichoke, SU Marker (Soft Suede)
Paper: Whisper White, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice EF, Hemp twine, Button
