CCMC432 and GDP062 Wetlands Birthday

 

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  Today is John's birthday, so I have a masculine card to share with you!  It uses the sketch from the Global Design Project:
And the colors from Create with Connie & Mary:

CCMC432

I got the Wetlands set a while back and have never inked it up!  I thought this would be a good time!  I stamped the goose and sentiment in Night of Navy, then masked the goose and added some grass in Mint Macaron.  I did not get any of the copper foil sheets, but I had some Brushed Copper cardstock from waaaaaay back so I used that, as well as Copper Encore ink to add a few speckles:


I also had some copper metallic thread from way back, so I used that as well under my sentiment.  The final touch was to add some stamping around the outside of the Mint Macaron card base.  Very easy and simple card!


Cassidy made a card for Grampy, too.  Since Grampy likes deer, and I had just gotten some little deer dies, we cut some out of some kraft paper:


and she had a notion in her head (all by herself, too), to add some white gel pen accents:


She continued on, decorating her deer and drawing a field, sky and "clouds", then writing her own sentiment:  "Happy Deery Birthday to you, Grampy":


And check out all her little deer:


I guess she likes baby deer the most!!

Have a blessed day!

  1. So, I'm not the only one who orders stamps and hasn't inked them! This is one set where I share your guilt :-) I keep saving cards from Pinterest to my Wetlands folder but never make any. I'm always surprised when someone shares my pin and I think, "wow that's a great card" and I didn't even realize I had pinned it...lol. Sounds like a New Year's resolution coming up! Tell Cassidy I love what she did with the white gel pen and wish John a special day.

  3. Ahhh, Cassidy's card is SO sweet! I love baby deer, too! Your card is gorgeous as usual! I still have a little bit of the Brushed Copper left AND that Copper Cord, too! I should pull it out and use it up now that copper is on trend again! Thanks for playing along with the color challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!
