Ringed with Nature Get Well Card


This card is for my daughter-in-law's father who is struggling with some health concerns right now. I wanted to make something masculine, so I turned to the Stampin' Up Ringed With Nature stamp and die bundle. What really sold me on this set was the hybrid embossing folder that can be used with matching dies. So cool! Plus, I needed something that could be a good go-to for masculine cards since I tend to gravitate toward feminine, flowery stamps and dies. I'm probably not the only card maker with this problem😂!

I created the card base for this A2 card using a light tan card stock. I embossed a darker brown panel for the front of the card and die cut one of the tree rings to make an aperture for the "Get well soon" sentiment. Before adhering the embossed panel to the front of the card, I used a stencil and some distress ink to decorate the front of the card base. Then I stamped the sentiment where I wanted it and adhered the embossed panel. I die cut some mushrooms and an acorn using the same Ringed with Nature dies from the bundle and adhered them. It was a quick and easy card to make. 

This is the stencil and distress ink I used: 

Here's a look at the embossing folder and some of the dies from the set: 

Challenges I'm entering: 

Double Trouble Paper Crafting ( Thing 1: use at least one circle (I'm hoping the tree stumps count as they are not perfect circles but are still circular in shape); Thing 3: fall theme (I used fall colors and added an acorn)
