Last week I ran a private class for some lovely ladies. They chose the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set and I revisited a class I’d run previously using this set as inspiration.
It was also my Father-in-Law’s Birthday so one of the projects had a dual purpose.
The project is based on this one. I’ve updated the colours and design slightly.
Using the Woodland Embossing Folder and Mossy Meadow Cardstock creates a lovely background. This is then added to with tone-on-tone stamping using the small leaf. A quick colour of the leaves using a Blender Pen adds some additional depth to the design.
Another larger leaf is stamped onto Old Olive and cut out by hand. The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and cut from Crushed Curry Cardstock using the Classic Label Punch, biasing it to one side.
The cut out pieces are attached to the back of a True Gentleman Button with a length of Linen Thread tied through it. They are then securely fastened to the Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon using Tear & Tape and Dimensionals.
I’m pleased to say that my Father-in-Law was happy with his card 🙂
Pop back soon to see some more projects from the class.
