Stampin' Up! Country Livin' stamp set

  • Country Livin'
  • April 23 Class filling fast

Masculine card using Country Livin'

One of the cards we'll make during the April 23 card class is this masculine card using the Country Livin' stamp set.  I love all of the different sentiments we have available to us in the Stampin' Up! line. As we're getting close to Father's Day and with special birthdays for the wonderful men in our lives happening anytime, I created a card that could be used for multiple purpose.    

I chose the Best Dad Ever sentiment from the Everyday Tags sentiment set in the Occasions catalog.  It worked really well on this card  below, in portrait format.  

I changed the format from portrait to landscape and choose another masculine sentiment -- Best. Guy. Ever.-- from the Suite Sentiment's stamp set, which is also from the Occasions catalog. 

The rest of the card is the same except for the orientation and the sentiments.  I used Marina Mist as the accent color.  After stamping the boots, I masked them, cut a second mask to use to stamp the wood grain background in Night of Navy using the Hardwood stamp set behind the boots.  Then I used daubers with Marina mist to color the wood grain.  I removed the mask from the boots and painted them with Soft Suede with an aqua painter.  The speckles are stamped in Marina Mist using the Gorgeous Grunge set.   The sentiment on the banner is stamped in Chocolate Chip.  The Best Dad Ever is stamped in Marina Mist.  You choose which color sentiment works best on your card.

You can make either version to have on hand for upcoming birthdays, thank yous, or Father's Day-- whenever you need a masculine card.
