Look up to Father

Hi everyone!  I thought I would make a quick post today as its been several days with out one! :)  It's the last week of school for my daughter and a week and a half for both my sons and things seem to be a bit crazy around here.  I wanted to share this card before it is too late to get the stamp!  The stamp is called "Look up to Father" and it is just one stamp, a big bold tree.  Love it.  I saw a card designed by another demonstrator named Ann Schach that I really liked and this card is inspired by hers.  I changed it a little, added some burlap ribbon and eliminated a card stock layer but it has the same feel as hers.  There are two retiring items on this card, available only until May 31st so get them while you can.  The first is the stamp, "Look up to Father" and the other is the embossing folder used to create the textured background, Square Lattice Embossing Folder .   The colors used here are Soft Suede and Always Artichoke on Very Vanilla.  I also wanted to make a non-father version and so I changed the sentiment to "Happy Birthday" using the Itty Bitty Banners set and matching Framelits.
Thankfully the Burlap Ribbon is carrying over from the spring occasions catalog because I like the rough texture it brings and the Natural look to it.

I used markers to ink up the stamp so that I could add the Soft Suede to the tree trunk.I then cut the image out with the  Starburst Framelits.

I used a sponge to go over all the edges of my paper pieces.  Sponging really softened the edges of the Hardwood stamp, and brought out the details and textrures on the Starburst Framelits and Square Lattice Embossed piece.
