Good morning, my peeps! Welcome to another week. If you’re still self-isolating, then…it’s week 52 of May!
Just helping you keep oriented to the goings on in the “outside world”! You’re welcome. 😉
My card today is a special request for a thank you card, for a man, who lives in the mountains and has a tree trimming/clearing business. Obviously, I headed for the Mountain Air stamp set with its bundled Majestic Mountain Dies (carrying over), and I pulled a sentiment from the new Lovely You stamp set (NEW in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog). Take a look-see:
I pulled the layout for it from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and, in Early Espresso, stamped the mountain range from Mountain Air. I stamped it a second time in Crumb Cake – offsetting it a little to create a “range”.
Then I embossed the panel in the Woodland Embossing Folder.
Across the bottom of the panel, with Liquid Glue, I adhered a strip of Early Espresso cardstock. I also cut a triangle and adhered it on the right side.
I created the “barn wood” fence/wall using strips of the new In Good Taste DSP (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog). The strips varied in width. I laid them out in a lattice fashion…
…and used Liquid Glue to adhere them. Then I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer and matted the panel on Mossy Meadow.
I stamped the sentiment from Lovely You in Mossy Meadow on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, using my Stamparatus. Then I cut it out with a Stitched Nested Label die.
I stamped a few trees from Mountain Air in Mossy Meadow on Crumb Cake and cut them with their matching dies in the Majestic Mountain die set. I also cut a few of the detailed trees dies from Mossy Meadow.
The final piece of prep was a double-loop Linen Thread bow.
Then I laid everything out until I got it how I wanted it (including a length of new 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim)…and took a couple of pictures.
First with everything in place…
…and then I picked up the sentiment…
I adhered the Faux Suede Trim using Glue Dots on the back of the card front, then I added all the trees with Liquid Glue.
The double-loop bow is adhered with a Glue Dot. Then I popped the sentiment and final tree on with Dimensionals. And the card front was done.
On the inside, I stamped the mountain range in Early Espresso and Crumb Cake on a Crumb Cake panel. Then I adhered a strip of Early Espresso and more strips of In Good Taste DSP.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some Mossy Meadow pine trees on the front…
…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Well – what do you think? Mountains – check. Trees – check. Masculine – check. Thanks to the wonderful scenic images from the Mountain Air set and the matching dies in Majestic Mountain – it’s pretty easy to create any sort of mountain scene! So glad that it’s carrying over!
And the brand new Lovely You stamp set is chock full of all sorts of sentiments – in really pretty fonts!
I hope you like!
