A lot of different elements went into making this card. I started with a card made my Sophie – see it here on SplitcoastStampers. Although my looks quite different I used her design as a guide. Notice that there is a tree and a fence in the background of this Dover Publication card, and Sophie’s card has a tree and a fence in the background.
I have the sentiment stamped right on the front for the challenge at Corrosive Challenges Blog.
I have used two stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! 1. The Open Sea and 2. Lovely as a Tree. The embossing folder (stripes), the Die cut (Top Note), the circle punch and the inks are also SU. The fence is a border fence from Martha Stewart. I have added some sponging and stippling to make it feel more vintage. I think this makes a nice masculine greeting card.
