The Wilderness Awaits- Thinking of You :-)

Hi Again Stampers!!

This card was created using the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC369 Sketch Challenge along with the Just Add Ink JAI276 "Cards for Males" Challenge and the IN{K}SPIRE_Me#212 Color Challenge (oops! just realized I used Whisper White versus Very Vanilla- hope I will not be disqualified :-))

I am trying to use up some of my retired stash of DSP, ribbons and hardware so the embellishments along with the Designer Series Paper (DSP) are retired...

If you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites to check out the great Design Team samples as well as their wonderful galleries!

To create this card:

Stamp the elk image from The Wilderness Awaits using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, watercolor with an AquaPainter™ using Stampin’ Write Markers- Soft Sky and Pacific
Point for the sky area, Tip Top Taupe and Chocolate Chip for the elk and stones. 

Cut the image out with the Big Shot™ and the Oval Collections Framelits™, cutting another oval the same size from Chocolate Chip cardstock as well.

Split the Chocolate Chip oval in half and adhere behind the focal image.

Add a few more stones to the bottom of the image using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of retired Sweater Weather Soft Sky DSP, trim and mount onto a piece of Tip Top Taupe cardstock, trim and mount onto Chocolate Chip cardstock, trim and mount onto Pacific Point cardstock, trim once more and mount onto the Chocolate Chip card base.

Add the panels of retired DSP mounted onto Chocolate Chip along with the banners created with the Banner Triple Punch (per the sketch).

Stamp the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Word Window Punch.
Mount the sentiment along with the focal image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Trim a piece of retired Pacific Point Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, fray the ribbon, cut a piece of retired 5/8” Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon in half, fold and adhere both behind the focal image.

Fray a piece of retired Hemp Twine and tie onto the retired Antique Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware Clip- add the clip to the focal image to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: The Wilderness Awaits, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black; Stampin’ Write Markers- Soft Sky, Pacific Point, Tip Top Taupe, Chocolate Chip

Paper: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Tip Top Taupe, Chocolate Chip; retired Sweater Weather DSP, retired Pacific Point DSP (from Hostess Level I Pack)

Accessories: Big Shot™,  Ovals Collection Framelits™, AquaPainter™, Banner Triple Punch, retired items- Hemp Twine, 5/8" Pacific Point Striped Grosgrain Ribbon,  5/8” Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Antique Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware Clip

What a FABULOUS masculine card! I LOVE the 'fiber' element you created and added with the clip...perfect accent! I love that the colors are on the 'bright' side even though masculine. Thanks for playing along this week for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
