CAS Trees Birthday Wishes Card - Craft For Life Campaign

Today's CAS80 challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is a sketch inspired by this fab card made by stampingout. I really liked the layout and thought I'd take the opportunity to make another masculine birthday card for the Cancer Research Craft for Life Campaign.

I cut a piece of A4 Old Olive card in half lengthways and then scored at the halfway mark to make a top folded A6 size card. I've used the SU! Funky Forest wheel stamp - but I use mine unmounted. I stamped the image in Olive ink and then I've gone in afterwards with my Choc Chip marker pen to add colour to the tree trunks. The shaped border was made with a Tim Holtz On the Edge die. To finish off, I tied some Choc Chip satin ribbon around the card in a knot.

Stamps: SU! Funky Forest wheel stamp, sentiment from SU! Wow Flowers set
CS: SU! Old Olive, Chocolate Chip & Whisper White
Ink: SU! Old Olive & Chocolate Chip ink pads & Chocolate Chip marker pen
Tools: Sizzix Tim Holtz On the Edge 'Brackets' die, metric Scor-Pal
Embellishments & accessories: SU! Chocolate Chip satin ribbon
