There are a few Theme Challenges this week:
- Global Design Project – GDP279 ANIMAL
- CASology – Week 384 FOX and
- Watercooler Wednesday Challenge – WWC309 MASCULINE
I wanted to keep this card very clean with minimal layers yet be striking.
From the Nature’s Beauty stamp set, I stamped the Fox on to a small piece of Basic White cardstock in the foreground and added the smaller Tree in the background using Early Espresso ink.
I colored the Fox with Terracotta Tile ink. Added some Soft Suede to the Tree and a bit of Balmy Blue for the Snow. The color was picked up from the lids of the ink pads with a Blender Pen to achieve the softer watercolor look.
The focal image was then trimmed to shape with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies (1⅜” x 2¾”) and matted with a piece of Balmy Blue card stock (1⅞” x 2”).
Keeping the design clean, the sentiment, Happy Birthday, from the Brushed Blooms stamp set was chosen for the straightforward font. The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink on to a Basic White back panel (4⅛” x 5⅜”). The panel was then dry embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder for a bit of texture.
Everything was then assembled on to a Basic White card base.
This is a great masculine birthday card featuring the Fox from the lovely stamp set, Nature’s Beauty. The other animals included in Nature’s Beauty are a Deer and a Rabbit. Many multi-seasonal scenes can be created with this stamp set.
Hope you like this card as much as I do!
