Grassy Grove masculine card by Secrets To Stamping

Hi, Stampers!

A new Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge is starting today, and our theme is Always Anything Goes with Dies. Since I needed a masculine birthday card, I decided that Grassy Grove was a perfect choice. So, this time I used the wonderful grove of trees die to make a window card and created the scene on the inside of the card. I just love how this card turned out!

Once you finish here, I hope you visit the Happy Little Stampers Die Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My secrets!

  • Firstly, this card started with thick white cardstock, cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4.”
  • After that, I cut the card front with the tree die.
  • Then, I cut the Cheerful Daisies designer paper to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card.

And now, the fun part!

  • Once that was done, I stamped the scenic stamp (I have NO idea what to call that one!) with Garden Green ink. Then, I cut out the two sets of trees and cut them all out with their coordinating dies.
  • So, the only challenging part of this card was getting the color of the deer right. After a few tries, I stamped the large deer with the new Pecan Pie ink and liked it so much. Then, the little deer was cut out and sponged with Pecan Pie ink, as
  • Also, I inked the flying birds from Waves of Inspiration with Early Espresso ink.
  • Then, I stamped the sentiment from Days to Remember with Early Espresso and punched the ends with the Banner Pick A Punch. Then, I cut a 1/4″ piece of Early Espresso cardstock to layer underneath.
  • Finally, I added a linen thread bow.

I’m sharing my card with these challenges:
