The mid-Atlantic, where I’m located is gripped in a heat wave. Is anyone else besides me thinking of cool, crisp Fall days? Today’s card is in honor of Fall and cooler days ahead!
The Ringed With Nature Bundle is amazing and makes great cards for any occasion, including cards for guys! The bundle includes the Ringed With Nature Stamp Set and the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder. What’s really cool about the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder is that it coordinates with the Rings of Love 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. If you purchase the Ringed With Nature Bundle, you can get the Rings of Love DSP for FREE during Sale-A-Bration. The hybrid embossing folder lets you emboss and die cut the tree rings all at the same time. And, dies are included that will cut out some of the tree rings on the DSP! It’s a win-win! And…check out the adorable acorns! They are so cute!
I chose a piece of paper from the Rings of Love DSP that had a Crushed Curry background and paired this with a Crushed Curry mat and Night of Navy card base. Love the Crushed Curry and Night of Navy together! One of the house images from the same DSP was die cut into a circle and matted onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock. I created a sentiment label using an embossed tree ring and a die cut (un-embossed) tree ring.
Several tree limbs and leaves were die cut, along with three acorns. The tree limbs and leaves were tucked under the house and sentiment label then I added the acorns around the card front. A double bow was tied with linen thread and adhered to the sentiment label.
For the card’s inside panel and the envelope front, I created a mask of the tree ring image from the stamp set, then stamped the tree ring on the panel and envelope. I used the mask to cover these stamped images in order to stamp the tree limbs and leaves around the tree ring.
This card was quick to assemble once all of the die cutting was complete. I hope you give it a try but remember to purchase the bundle before August 31 so you can earn the free Rings of Love Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog! Don’t delay too long though as Sale-A-Bration products are only while supplies last and this paper is very popular!
