Today’s card is a little bit different for me, and one I CASE’d from Wendie Young Waldman. Mine is a little different to hers, but the idea is the same – to cut up squares from one of the stamps in the Rooted In Nature stamp set.
If you like Lovely As A Tree you’ll love this. Plus, this one has not only a bigger stamp set, but dies too. Buy them both as a bundle and you get a 10% discount. Some of the leaf dies emboss too, it really is a great bundle.
I used new ink pads for this card – Grey Granite for the tree trunks, and Granny Apple Green for the leaves. Those leaves are beautiful aren’t they? Such a lot of detail in them. And I love that tree slice too.
I used the smallest of the Stitched Framelit squares to cut up the slices – I first stamped them onto a piece of card then die cut them afterwards.
The Happy Birthday sentiment comes from the Hand Delivered hostess stamp set.
I used this for a 60th birthday card for a man who I know will love it.
Stampin’ Up! have a video showing the whole bundle, stamps and dies, and ideas for how to use them.
Here’s what I used to make the card:
