Lovely as a Tree "Father's Day Card"

The "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set is so versatile and this giant oak reminds me of a strong man.
Masculine cards are always a challenge but I really like this rustic look.  The Log Cabin Smooch helped to achieve this look with just a hint of shimmer!  I used the "Thumping Technique" on the top of the tree.  Stamped entire tree in Certainly Celery and removed the ink from the trunk with a Blender Pen.  Used Soft Suede for the trunk, then with my markers I thumped the top of the tree with Summer Sun, Old Olive and Soft Suede.

Stamps:  SU -  Lovely as a Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Soft Suede, Choc. Chip, Certainly Cerely, Old Olive, Summer Sun
Paper: Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Kraft
Accessories:  Big Shot, Dot Embossing Folder, Word Window & Designer Label Punches, Sponge Dauber, Cutter Kit Destressing Tool, Soft Suede Grosgrin Ribbon, Dimensionals, Blender Pen

Thanks for stopping by!
