This the last card in my series of "Man Cards" that I created for my stamp camp.
I copied this card from Sharon Field with a few changes.  I stamped the oak tree using Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla, then used the mat pack and paper piercing tool to add some detail to the corners.  Behind it is a layer of Early Espresso, then a layer of Not Quite Navy.  Before popping that layer on Stampin' Dimensionals, I tied a piece of Hemp Twine around it and added a Vintage Tag that was stamped with the small leaf image from Lovely as a Tree.  (Every year I think that stamp set is going to go to the chopping block, but it never does.  Thank you, SU!)  Under that layer is a piece of designer series paper from Well Worn and a piece of River Rock that I embossed using the Stripes embossing folder. You can see the Not Quite Navy accents in the wood grain, too. 

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree

Susan, this is fantastic! Love the extra detail from the paper piercing and the little vintage tag is such a great masculine embellishment!

I love Lovely As A Tree. I used to have it and don't anymore. I guess I'm going to have to get a new one.
