Happy Birthday, Dad!

Good Morning, everyone!

Today, I'm showcasing a card that I made for my dad's birthday.  It's coming up on Sunday and I just totally enjoyed making this for him.  He is a hunter and a fisherman and loves the outdoors, so what a perfect set "Through the Trees" is for his birthday.

Happy Birthday, Dad!

I used so many sets for this card.  Just on the front, I'm using Think Big Favorites #7, Through the Trees and Autumn Acorns.

On the inside I used Make A Wish, Framed and Botanical Silhouettes!  I used a Copic marker to put in the comma AND I just realized that I need to use it again for the exclamation point after "Dad!"

 I used Clean and Simple's #156 Sketch Challenge in order to make my dad's card!

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Through the Trees stamp set
Autumn Acorns stamp set & dies
Think Big Favorites #7 stamp set
Make a Wish stamp set
Framed stamp set
Botanical Silhouettes stamp set
Woodgrain impression plate
Boy Basics: Simple Circles die
Tim Holtz distress inks
Filigree embossing powder - Clear
Terracotta Tile, Kraft and Rustic Cream cardstock
VersaMagic ink - Jumbo Java
Studio G. ink - Gold
Orange Zest ink
Copic marker - E59 (for the comma)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Fantastic card, Stephanie! I love how you used the Simple Circles die with these other stamp sets (I need to pull that die out again!)

This is really stunning, Stephanie. I love the warm and rich background behind the trees. It's such a great look. Isn't it fun to use lots of different stamps on one card! - Everything co-ordinates so nicely.

Amazing card as per your capable custom. I just adore the particular combination of sets and dies. They really seem a perfect match. This card is a perfect masculine card and is not at all cliche. Fabulous!
