Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Masculine Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Is anyone making any fun plans for the weekend?  One more work day left in the week and then 2 off, for most.   I usually work on weekends, so I get 1 day off and I’m usually off Friday’s too.

For today’s card I made a masculine card using the Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature bundle. I’m one who always struggles with masculine cards, they are a challenge for me.  Since I did come up with one, I played along with the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge #204.

Be sure to stop by Watercolor Wednesday and see what everyone had created.  Here is my card for the challenge.  Take a look.

I started with a Sahara Sand card front and adhered a panel of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Using my Triple Banner Punch, I made a banner from a smaller piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I also cut a banner from another piece of the Nature’s Poem DSP and adhered it to the Sahara Sand banner using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Crumb Cake Nature’s Twine around the top and tied a bow.

I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals lining it up with the DSP on the card front.  I cut a couple small and large leaves out using my Big Shot and the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies in Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I adhered them to the top of the banner by the bow using Snail and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small piece of Sahara Sand cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies Circle.  I adhered the sentiment to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside on a Very Vanilla panel I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Photopolymer stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Hand Delivered Host stamp set below in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the larger leaf from Rooted In Nature stamp set, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment.  I then adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf from Rooted In Nature stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Nature’s Poem DSP to the envelope flap.

By purchasing the Rooted In Nature Bundle did you know you can save 10%.  The bundle includes the Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Stamp Set and the Natures Roots Framelits Dies.  I don’t know about you, but I’m all about saving money.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping.

  1. Great guy card, Karen! They can be pretty tough to do, especially if tools or sports aren’t really appropriate for the special man you need a card for. I like how you matted the card to form the background for your sentiment. Super cute flap on the envelope, too! Thanks for sharing your talents with us at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges!!! -Donna
