CAS Masculine Birthday- Three in One!

Hi Stampers!          
I wanted to create a masculine CAS birthday card and decided to incorporate this week’s PP118 The Paper Players “Framed”CAS Challenge along with the Stampin’ Up! Only SUO56 "Animals" theme and the FMS58 Sketch at Freshly Made Sketches- a "trifecta" so to speak :-)

Again, if you have not visited these challenge sites, they provide wonderful inspiration each week and I hope that you have a chance to visit them and play along as well:-).

To create this card:

Stamp the wolf image using Early Espresso Classic ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punch out using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch.  Punch two other circles with the same punch from Night of Navy, overlap slightly and adhere behind the Very Vanilla focal image to produce a small “frame”.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Labels Collection Framelits™ and cut a piece of Early Espresso Core’dinations cardstock and Very Vanilla cardstock.  Cut the Very Vanilla layer in half and trim off the points (this piece will layer behind the Early Espresso layer).

Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the Early Espresso die cut framelit™ (created in the step above) and a piece of Comfort Café DSP.  Lightly sand both pieces to expose the core of the cardstock.

The Night of Navy layer was created from a previously embossed piece (using the retired Snow Burst EF)- love those scraps!! :-)

Add the layers, the brads on the frame, the bit of knotted Hemp and the sentiment banners to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  In Wilderness, Birthday Greetings (both retired)

Ink: Early Espresso

Paper:  Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Early Espresso Core’dinations, Comfort Café

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Labels Collection Framelits™ , Sanding Block,  retired products- Snow Burst Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Antique Copper Brads, Hemp Twine

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you like this simple masculine card.  I might save this for my husband- he loves nature and wolves:-)

Have a great week creating and stamping!
