Mountain Air, Thinking of You, Masculine Card, 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I was planning on making a masculine card and I saw the "Mountain Air" set that I bought last year and have never used. As I'm looking at the set I realized why. It's a bit more challenging that I thought it would be.  I was looking on Pinterest for some inspiration but wasn't seeing anything I liked so I just thought I'd give it a try in pieces.

I die cut the tree from the dies using Mossy Meadow ink. I cleaned up all the pieces that didn't just pop out and set it aside. 

I liked the mountains but I didn't like them all in a long row like they are on the stamp. SO I stamped them anyway using Balmy Blue ink. 

Then I stamped the smaller tree line that was just as long as the mountain line. I used Basic Gray for that.  I was liking what I was seeing.

There's cloud images in the set so I stamped a few of them using Balmy Blue ink that was stamped off once.

I decided to make this into a circle layered card. I love making those type of card using smaller images. It puts that tiny image into focus.  But I usually us it with two different size punches. So I need to look for two different size circles because those punches I usually use are way to small for this scene.

I ended up using the second largest Stitched Circle die and the next size larger plain circle die.  I cut a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic Gray and a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut the largest circle first on the Basic White piece.  I set the die on the card stock and the tree over it to see where the circle needed to be moved so there was enough room for the words.  Then I set the circle in place and die cut it.

I set the Basic White piece on top of the Basic Gray piece.  Then I set the die inside the Basic White circle and lined it up. I held the die in place and removed the Basic White piece. I taped the die down so it wouldn't move and I ran it through my Big Shot.  

Next I stamped the words from the "Peaceful Moments" set using Basic Gray ink. Then I taped it to the Basic Gray piece. Dimensionals were added to the back and set in place on the card base.

I taped the top part of the tree and then added some glue to a piece of scrap paper and pressed the bottom part of the tree in it and then set the tree in place and the card was done.  

I now liked this set. But I can only make so many of these cards before it gets boring and I don't enjoy working with the set anymore.  But there are other shapes to explore!!!  And who knows, maybe I'll find something on Pinterest that will rock my world and I'll have to try to recreate it!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to see today's masculine card,
