Sheltering tree Stampin Up ♥ boy's Birthday card idea

April 20, 2015

                                                                                     Project 1 of 5 with Sheltering Tree Stamp Set
Hello, I thought it could be a good idea to make something different with Sheltering Tree set of 14 clear stamps and I have made a very basic boy's birthday card that could be easily turned into a girl's  birthday card  or a card for any occasion using other colours, designer paper and stamping different sentiments.

This is one of 4 projects I'll be posting this week  using this set. I hope you like it and don't forget  to leave your comments or question. Thanks  Bibi x

To make this card I  checked which materials I have available in  Real Red and Night of  Navy colours 
as I thought it could be a good idea to use them to give that boyish - Navy touch to the card.

I got smooth whisper white  and Night of Navy cardstock.  Real Red and Night of  Navy ink pads and 
 I found that in my last order I got  from the Clearance Rack some Christmassy designer paper and washi tape  and they suited perfectly to my purposes. Why not  use them?  
 A piece of designer series paper Nordic Noel   was everything I needed for the background and  a little bit  of  my washi tape Santa  C0,  to embellish. 

I also used  The Note Tag Punch to cut out the tag on the front panel  and some stamps from Age Awareness stamp set which is a Birthday themed set. I add red - white Baker's  twine and that was all.

This card measures 6"x6"inches -15x15cm 
The background ( red striped designer series paper) measures 4 1/2 x6" - 12 x 15cm
The whisper white panel stamped with "Happy Birthday"  measures 4x4 1/2" - 10x11.5 cm
Night of Navy panel measures 3 3/4 x3 1/2"-  9.5x 9cm
tag measures 1 1/2 x2" - 4x5cm

I found that all the stamps on the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set are easy to mix with other sets to create any occasion paper craft projects. As always a very versatile set to easily  work with! I love it.

Stampin' Up! will launch its new catalogue in less than 2 months.  We don't know if it will stay as part of the new catalog ( I really hope so) but if not and  if you haven't got this Stamp Set hurry up before is too late.
