Waterfront, Guy Greetings, Birthday Card for Dad, 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog

I REALLY love playing with this new "Waterfront" stamp set that is in the 2018 Occasions catalog.  There's SO much you can do with this set. Today I decided to make a dad birthday card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Early Espresso card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the "True Gentleman" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and on top of that is the Whisper White focal piece that was cut 3-3/4" x 5". 

I stamped the mountains first. I used Crumb Cake and stamped off once.  Then I added the trees. I wanted to make sure they were showing a bit above the mountain. I used Garden Green ink to stamp them. I wish I would have used  a marker and colored over the trunks so they weren't green, but this is what I did!

Next I used Pool Party ink and stamped in the water. And then I took Old Olive ink and the long strip image and stamped on the ground.  

I made a mask for the mountains and stamped the sun using Daffodil Delight.

The words are from the "Guy Greetings" set and I used Early Espresso to stamp them.

It's a pretty simple card to make. I think I'd like to try another one sometime soon.  Keep an eye out for it, it will be the same image layout but a different look!!  Now are you curious?  LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
