Pine Cone Birthday



Here is my card for Beate's wonderful Weekend Sketch Challenge #44 (WSC44)! It's an easy guy card to make. This is a birthday card that I created for my brother-in-law. Thanks for the great challenge!

All products used are from Stampin' Up! I used Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, and Wild Wasabi card stock. I stamped the pine cone from the Noble Deer set in garden green and then use my chocolate chip marker to color in the pine cones and branch. I then stamped my image on the cs. I used my scoring tool to create the lines that frame the branch. The gave the effect I was looking for. I then stamped the saying in garden green and punched it out with the designer label punch. I sponged both with creamy caramel. After punching out the saying, I thought that it needed more, so I added another layer. Instead of trying to cut around the punch I punched out a 1 3/8 circle and cut a rectangle and attached those two together. This worked perfectly. I stamped the pine branch the dots (from the Polka Dots and Paisley set) in versamark on the background panels.

Thanks so much for looking! Have fun stamping!!!

I love the colors you chose for this card. They are masculine without being too seasonal. How did you color the pine cones again? You really are good-this one looks perfect!
