Fall Birthday Card

I tend to be like the carpenter who never gets building projects done at his own home. My husband's birthday was yesterday and I had not made him a card...until 4am yesterday morning! Unless noted, all products Stampin' Up!

This is one of my shaving cream tech cards (#notyourmothersshavingcreamtech) with an image from Lovely as a Tree stamped on it, then I used stamps from the Happy Celebrations stamp set and a folder from the Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. The colors I used are Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Soft Suede.

When I did the shaving cream technique on the Whisper White cardstock, I used Pumpkin Pie on top, Crushed Curry toward the center, then Soft Suede toward the bottom. I stamped the trees with Soft Suede. 

After the background and the initial tree images had been stamped, I ran it through the embossing folder that coordinates with the Happy Celebrations stamp set. Then I used the larger splatter stamp from that set to stamp over the debossed "celebrate". (I stamped the splatter image once on scrap paper with Soft Suede, then stamped it over the debossed area.) I finished it off with the "your day" sentiment from the same stamp set and layered it on to a piece of top folded Soft Suede cardstock.
