Peaceful everything...

I wanted to make a few more cards using this set before I hand it back to my friend. I was inspired to make masculine card by Debbie's beautiful card . I contacted her to make sure I had permission to post my version of it...Thanks so much for the inspiration. Here is my interpretation of it.

I stamped the boughs in always artichoke onto natural ivory cs. (some of the boughs are lighter in colour, I did that by continuing to stamp without re-inking). I stamped the pinecones in choc chip ink and then cut one out and mounted it onto dimensionals. I stamped the weathered bg stamp over the main image using close to cocoa ink (stamping off once, for a lighter effect). I monted it onto choc. chip cs and corner ticket punched the corners and added some brads to finish it off. For the card base I used always artichoke cs and stamped canvas bg using the matching ink. I stamped "happy" from the "happy everything" set in basic black so it would stand out. I tied some jute onto the main image and then hung the little "everything" tag off with a jump ring. For the finishing touch I mounted the whole main image onto dimensionals to make it "pop".

I had to fight my instincts to add more and keep it simple for those guys in our lives. I originally wanted to add some paper piercing along the bottom but in the end thought it probably would not have been visible with the canvas bg so let it be.

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy stamping!
