Lovely as a Tree

PP259 Lovely as a Tree Masculine Birthday Card
It’s Sunday again, and that means design team inspiration for The Paper Players!

This week’s challenge (#PP259) is a sketch challenge, and here is the sketch we were to use to design a card from:

I needed a birthday card this past week for a dear friend who is hitting one of those biggie decade birthdays so thought I would use the design to make his card.

I used my ALL TIME favorite most versatile stamp set in the entire world (I might be exaggerating a teensy bit, but hopefully you get my point).ย  Lovely as a Tree from StampinUp was one of my very first stamps I bought, and one that I still use often – Winter, Fall, Summer, Christmas, Masculine, Feminine.ย  Such great versatility.

I think I did pretty good sticking close to the design sketch and like how this birthday card turned out for our special friend.

Play along with us – any of you paper players!ย  I’d love to see what you design with this sketch.

Cheers & Hugs,

  2. That’s beautiful! I have one or two stamps with trees. I haven’t used my stamps in eons, and have recently thought about trying to sell them. Most of mine are on wood blocks. I see they don’t make many like that anymore. I wasn’t as creative with them as you are!

  3. Great masculine card, Jodi! This stamp set is one my favorites for that occasion. Love how you used the newsprint as in the sketch and the button for the second circle element.

  5. Hi Jodi, I’m wandering through by way of Pam’s Catching My Drift blog and wanted to say hi. I’m eager to explore your blog and love the variety! You’ve made a lovely card…esp the tree stamp and the piece of text cut into a bookmark shape. My daughter & I are into cardmaking and are always on the lookout for fresh ideas!
