My idea for today’s project began with the Winter Woods stamp set. It has an artistic row of tree trunks that “would” be perfect for this week’s challenge at CAS(E) this sketch.

Winter Woods Birthday

 

See what I mean?

 

Say the word, “wood,” and it says “masculine” to me, so this “would” be a birthday card for a man. I stamped the row of trees with Gray Granite ink on Gray Granite cardstock. The stamp has three trees, so I stamped several times across the 3″X 2″ piece of cardstock.

The corners needed to be round, like the sketch, and our Detailed Trio Punch worked perfectly. I layered my row of trees on a piece of Galvanized Metallic Paper. It doesn’t show in the photo, but it has a wonderful sheen.

I tied some Braided Linen Trim around one side, frayed the ends,  and added dimensionals to the back.

 Next, I chose a beautiful piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to blend with the Gray Granite card base, and glued the two together.

For the details, I used four dies from three different die sets. The pinecones, stamped in Soft Suede ink on Gray Granite cardstock, are from Winter Woods. The leaf branch, die cut from Galvanized Metallic Paper, is also from Winter Woods. The berry branch, cut from Balckberry Bliss cardstock, is from Frosted Bouquet. And, “Happy Birthday” (Picture Perfect Birthday) is cut with a label die from Merry Christmas.
