We had another birthday last week, David one of my fathers-in-law (I am lucky to have two) celebrated his birthday. David has retired now but still does alot of gardening work so I wanted to make some cards that reflect this.
I didn't have any kraft cardstock so I used a download of kraft paper from Pink Petticoat and printed it on white cardstock, I think it came out quite well. I stamped some flower images on the background with versamark ink and then stamped a tree with my new Spring Silhouettes stamps from Kanban I then inked a bit around the edges of the paper to soften it.
I embellished the trees with a bit of bling but not too much as it was for a man. In a couple of days I will post a card that I have made for one of my best friends and I have embellished every inch of that tree! From the kids I stamped three other different trees from the same stamp set and mounted them on to green cardstock.
