Here's the "man" card of all "man" cards. I created this card this past weekend at a card making event (not my design 🙂 and felt it was an excellent way to share Stampin' Up!'s Nature Silhouettes (111542) stamp set. It's a bit more "wilderness" than I typically do (my idea of camping is going to a Best Western), but I love the outdoors and felt that this set was particularly tasteful. For more masculine card samples, click here for "You've Got Male."
The deer silhouette was inked in Chocolate Chip and stamped on Naturals Ivory card stock. I then stamped the tree scene (also Chocolate Chip) on Mellow Moss and snipped it out with my Paper Snips. TIP: Paper Snips (103579) are the way to go if you need precise cutting. They get into the tiniest of spots. The "scene" is layered over the deer with Stampin' Dimensionals for a cool 3-D effect.
Below is more Mellow Moss, with the corners clipped by a Ticket Corner Punch. The moss layer is followed by Old Olive card stock with Organic Grace (Hostess/Stampin' Rewards Level 1) ferns scattered in Always Artichoke. The Mellow Moss tabs at the top and bottom were shaped by a Tag Punch and stapled. The card base is 4.25 x 5.5 in Always Artichoke. Stampin' Up!'s Canvas Background is layered on top in Always Artichoke.
