Happy Fathers Day Tree

A Fathers Day card using the colours of the pic at Scrapbook Boutique as inspiration.

I also had a go at Therese's tutorial, but using woodgrain patterned paper.  I originally tried a thin sheet of bamboo, but it was too brittle and just cracked when it went through my Big Shot  : (

I used: MME Stella & Rose dp, Rosie's Studio textured kraft cardstock, QuicKutz tree die, Spellbinders Mega Ovals die, StampTV Happy Days stamp, Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

  1. This is such a nice masculine card! I first thought the woodgrain patterned paper was real wood! It looks very realistic! The tree looks gorgeous as well!

  2. Your card is awesome Jenny, I just love the die and paper you chose they are perfect! I've heard that you can die cut really thin balsa wood too, but I've not tried this yet.

  3. Looks great with that woodgrain paper jenny - an awesome Father's Day card:)
