Waterfront, Woodland, Southern Serenade, Masculine Birthday Card

Today's card was easy and fun to make.  My plan for today was to make a masculine birthday card and it worked out. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Tranquil Tide card stock.  And on top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White that was embossed using the "Woodland" embossing folder.  This is such a cool folder. I LOVE those trees.

Next I took a piece of Whisper White card stock that was cut 3-5/8" x 2-3/4".  I stamped the mountain image from the "Waterfront" set.  I used Soft Suede ink and I did stamp off once before stamping on my card stock.  The grassy area below the mountain was done by stamping off once using Tranquil Tide ink.  Looking at the image on my computer, I'm thinking that I should have used Soft Suede there too.  To the right I stamped the "land" using Tranquil Tide ink.  I also stamped the trees using Tranquil Tide. I used my Stamparatus and stamped the tree a couple of times to get it darker.  And the water was stamped using Pool Party ink and stamping off once.  I added dots to the piece using Pool Party ink and stamping off once each time. I taped the image layer to the Tranquil Tide layer.  If you want you can die cut the scalloped circle from the center of the Tranquil Tide piece no one will know. I often forget to do that (like today) but I had some small scrap so I used that. 

The words are from the "Southern Serenade" set and I used Soft Suede ink to stamp them.  I die cut the circle and taped it to the Tranquil Tide scalloped circle. 

I set the focal image in place using Dimensionals and I added a couple of Dimensionals to the bottom of the circle and a little bit of snail on the right side of the circle and I set that in place on the bottom left side of the card.  And that was it.  

I thought it was a fun card to make. I really like the "Waterfront" set and I've had a lot of fun with it.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
