Here is male birthday card we will make at the August stamp camp. Stamp sets used are Lovely As A Tree, It's Your Birthday and Flannel background. Paper used is Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. Ink is Close to Cocoa. Accessories used are the tag punch, 1/8' hole punch, jute and the distress tool.
Cut your Close to Cocoa paper at 4 1/2" x 11" and fold so that your card fold will be at the top. Stamp the flannel background stamp with the Close to Cocoa ink.
Cut a 2 1/2" square of Very Vanilla, stamp the tree with Close to Cocoa and ink and distress the edges. Mat this on a piece of 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" piece of Choc. Chip. Tear the bottom of the Choc. Chip piece and distress all edges.
Punch a 1/8" whole in the upper right corner and tie jute through.
Stamp the Happy Birthday saying and the small leaf on Very Vanilla and punch with the tag punch. Distress and ink the edges. Mount on a piece of Choc Chip, cut out and distress the edges. Punch a 1/8" hole in the top of the tag. Using the jute, tie the tag around the bottom of the matted tree. Glue the tree to the front of the card and attach the tag with pop dots.
