Lovely Birthday

Lovely as a Tree is Stampin' Up's longest running stamp set and each year around this time folks start to get nervous.  The retirement list comes out next week and everyone holds their collective breath to see if Lovely as A Tree will survive another catalogue year.  I am one of those who hopes this set will continue.  It is just so versatile and the images really are, well, lovely!  Today I have a card I designed for my upcoming card buffet using this iconic set:

Masculine birthday card featuring the Lovely as a Tree and Hardwood background stamps with sentiment from Simply Sketched.
I am so in love with the Hardwood background stamp from the Occasions catalogue!  I sure hope it is one that carries over into the new Annual Catalogue...I haven't had enough time to play with it yet!  Here are some quick tips in case you want to give this one a go:
  • I stamped the background in Sahara Sand on Soft Sky card stock and then sponged lightly all over with Whisper White craft ink.
  • The trees are stamped in Soft Suede ink and then sponged lightly with Soft Sky.  The edges of the panel are also sponged but in Sahara Sand.
  • The sentiment is stamped in Sahara Sand.
  • The little clip is one of the (retired) mini library clips (I really miss those!)

This really is a quick and easy project to put together and is perfect for just about any man in your life.  Here's hoping Lovely as a Tree survives yet another catalogue transition...I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
