This card was the result of a happy accident! I had grabbed a scrap of Very Vanilla to test different color combinations for a card I planned to make using the Waterfront stamp set. I fully expected to toss it in the trash, as I do most other card making "tests" but I ended up really liking it! (Well, except for where I messed up a little bit.)
That was easily remedied by cutting off the bad part with the large Stitched Shapes Framelit circle. Since I had this "useful bit" staring at me, I turned it into a nice masculine birthday card! I might give this to my hubby next month. Maybe.
I thought the Pinewood Planks made a nice background. After embossing the Crumb Cake, I dragged the Soft Suede ink pad across it so the wood grain would show. Anhoo, I really am besotted with this stamp set. I love the watercolor look, and how quickly I can put together a tranquil scene. You should try it!
