Happy Father's Day card... (H2H11)


I still had my scraps out from making my Banff layout yesterday, and my previous post of my masculine birthday card.  Which turned out to be perfect to use for this card, since the new Heart 2 Heart challenge #11 is to create a card or project for Father's Day using scraps. 

I pulled out my Treetops stampset, which hasn't really been inked up yet... until now.  My card is pretty simple, as that seems to be more my style lately. 

I added the little pop of color on the heart and pop-dotted it for some dimension.  And I used some scraps of thin cork, trimmed with my pinking shears to make the "grass".

Happy creating!  :)


Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Colonial White, Cocoa CS; Passages B&T
Stamps:  Treetops, Grown With Love, Say It In Style, A Little Everything
Inks:  Olive, Cocoa
Embellishments:  Cocoa buttons, New England Ivy waxy flax
Other items:  Pinking Shears (Singer), Cork (dollar store), Scor-Tape, 1/2" circle punch (SU), 3D foam tape

I love this card too Vicki! I haven't inked up my Treetops set yet either. Btw, I'm not stalking you, you just happen to be posting while I'm eating lunch at my desk, so thank you. :)

I really love this card, and I love my treetops stamp set, haven't used it in a while, so maybe I will have to for Father's Day!
