Celebrating You, Grassy Grove, Father's Day Card, 2022 Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalog

What I really like about this "Grassy Grove" set is that it's a perfect masculine set. It's great to use for a masculine birthday, Father's Day, get well, thinking of you, and even a sympathy card. My set was still sitting out (no surprise there, right?  LOL) so I thought I'd make another card with this set. It's super easy and quick too!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. The layer on top of it is a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Pale Papaya card stock. You could make the card base a half-sheet of the Pale Papaya card stock if you want. I didn't because I was trying to save on my colored card stock. 

I took a piece of Basic Black card stock and cut it to 4" x 5-1/4".  I die cut the tree image using the die from the "Grove" die set that came with my "Grassy Gove" bundle. Then I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "New Horizons" 6" x 6" stack.  I cut it just a hair shy of the 4" x 5-1/4" size the Basic Black die cut piece is.   

Then I took some Basic Black card stock that I had sitting around with the double sided sticky sheet on it and die cut the two deers in the "Grove" set. 

I set the die cut tree piece on top of the DSP to see where I needed to stamp the grass from the "Grassy Grove" set. I used black Memento ink to stamp the grass in two places.  

Next I set the DSP down and put the Basic Black die cut tree on top to see where I wanted the deers to go. I removed the backing on the deers and set them in place. Then I glued the die cut tree image to the DSP. That piece was then glued or taped to the Pale Papaya piece. And then that was affixed to the card base. 

The words are from the "Celebrating You" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using black Memento ink. I die cut them with the die from the "Ornate Frames" die set. I took my blending brush and brushed the edges with Pale Papaya ink. I set the piece in place with Dimensionals and the card was done.

I think it turned out well. I LOVE the background. It's like a pretty sunset. I can seem making more of these for a masculine birthday, thinking of you and get well. They are quick, easy, and fun to make too.

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