A Guy's Birthday Card

I find it hard to come up with guy cards for any occassion. I usually have to sit and ponder for a while until I come up with an idea. Well my wonderful husband gave me the Happy Camper set from Stampin' Up! for Christmas and the creativity started to flow. I love this set. It is sooo cute! So here is a birthday card from it.

All products used are Stampin' Up! All the stamps are from the Happy Camper set except for the saying which is from the It's Your Birthday set. I started with whisper white card stock and stamped the fire and trailer in chocolate chip. Then I stamped the smoke twice on a scratch sheet and then on the card with black to make it look gray. I stamped the trees in old olive multiple times to give it dimension while masking the trailer and the fire. I stamped the trailer in pumpkin pie on a separate paper, cut it out, and glued it on. I used the Stampin' Pastels to color in the ground, smoke, trees, and the sky. I used barely banana and real red stampin' write markers to color in the fire. I mounted both the saying and the image onto Blue Bayou card stock. Before mounting it all onto the card I added a strip of close to cocoa cs (card stock) to the card and then glued it all together with snail adhesive. Oh yeah...and I rounded the corners with a corner rounder to tie it all together.

I love how you masked the camper. The forest looks so realistic! It was a great idea to stamp off for the fire smoke. I can almost smell the s'mores. Wish I was there.
