Lovely As A Tree

Well today is the start of the long Labor weekend and the end to summer as most people view it.  I'm already for the cooler days and getting my jeans out of the closet too!

This is the last card that I made for the upcoming auction, which will be held this month at the Assisted Living Facility that my daughter works at.  I hope they do as well as they did last year!

Of course this card was made for a man, so I brought out my tried and true set, Lovely As A Tree!  This time I remember to take a picture of the inside of the card too!

I'm always so happy with how well the cards turn out when using this stamp set too.  I did use a retired embossing folder called Wood Grain, but I felt it would go better with the tree than the Hardwood background stamp.  I did light sponge it with ink the bring out the grains better.  Here is a picture of the inside.  I also stamped the envelope with this same image and colored it in too.

Here is what I used:

Stamp sets: Lovely As A Tree and Flourishing Phrases
Card stock:  Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla
Inks: Jet Black Staz-On, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso and Soft Sky
Aqua Painter
Burlap Ribbon
