Kiwi Kissed Manly Birthday Card

What do you think of my title? I know it is silly, but I thought it was fun! I made this card with one of the new sets my husband picked out for me for Christmas! The set is Lovely as a Tree! I also used It's Your Birthday, which is retired, for the saying. I made this card for my dad's birthday.

I used chocolate chip, kiwi kiss, tangerine tango and very vanilla card stock. I started by stamping my image in kiwi kiss ink pad, then coloring on the stamp with my chocolate chip marker for the tree trunk and limbs. I stamped the image on the paper. I then colored in the tree with my blender pen and kiwi kiss ink. I sponged the edges of the image with chocolate chip. I layered the image and used dimensionals to pop the two layers. For the background strips I used versamark. On the tangerine tango piece I used my tried and true, but retired, linen background stamp. For the kiwi kiss strip, I used the leaf stamp from Lovely as a Tree. I punched out 1 1/2 squares with the 1 3/4 square punch (this was a little bit bigger than my saying) to make a window. I placed vanilla card stock on the inside. Then stamped they saying in tangerine tango. I made sure that you would be able to see it through the window!!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
