Rooted in Nature ~ Happy Birthday

welcome back to my corner of the world

In among all the holiday celebrations there are birthdays – tomorrow would have been my dear Pop’s 90th – so I am commemorating with a card for the fellas today.

Mercury Glass Acetate Sheet Christmas Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

We have a Christmas card sneaking into my blog today.  The Mercury Glass Acetate Sheet is in the 2019 Holiday Catalog – it is so pretty and gives our card projects such a pop when used.

The card also features the So Many Stars Bundle which has the So Many Stars  stamp set and the Stitched Stars Dies.  I have borrowed the card and video from Stampin’ UP! because it is just the perfect way to use these products together.

At the end of October I shared a Halloween card we made in my monthly card class using the Waterfall Fold and promised to share a video – today I make good on that promise.

Plus I am doubling up and making it a guy card as well!  I figure the fellas in my life would get a kick out of the mechanism that makes the waterfall work!

Once again I have fallen back on the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set – it is just so perfect for the fellas but I need to think of a way to make a more feminine card with it ~ well that has set me a challenge hasn’t it?

Rooted in Nature – Sweet and Simple Guy Birthday Card

I shall say again, as I have many times in the past – making cards for the fellas in my life is always a challenge – and so it was for my husband’s birthday earlier this month!

My current favorite stamp set for fellas is Rooted in Nature, it has the perfect images without being too ‘fruu – fruu’ and sappy 🙂  Coupled with the Wood Textured DSP stack and the Leaves Trinkets it brings the woody theme together.
