Scenic View

Good morning to all my friends, fellow bloggers and anybody who just happened along by chance.  If that is the case then I hope you like what you see and I would love for you to leave a comment.  Happy St Patrick's day to any Irish bloggers - and Happy Birthday to my brother!

My card today is for a young man who needs a little love and encouragement.

My Card

Our Daily Bread Designs Sentiment - Rubber stamp "Keep Climbing" 
Creative Expressions - Rubber stamp "Scenic View"
Creative Expressions die - Auverne 
Die'sire Embossalicious folder - Argyle
Oak leaf and maple leaf punches 
Green pearlescent card from stash

Base card is a 5" x 7" tent fold card made from Papermania card stock. I used the letter press technique with the embossing folder and Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy ink pad.  I used the same ink to stamp the image and sentiment and then die cut it with Sue Wilson's Auverne die from the French collection.  I really like the monochrome look of this card. I still struggle with male cards but I'm happy with this one.

Hope you are all keeping well. 


  1. Morning Christine,

    Gorgeous card, so love the scenic image, so beautiful as is the sentiment that goes with it, this would be great for a graduation card as well as other occasions.
