Good Morning! Welcome to the May Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “For the Men/Boys” and I used the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder cling stamp set to make a masculine birthday card for our hop!
The Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder cling stamp set is one of the returning favorite stamp sets in the new catalog. I combined it with the pretty Fresh As A Daisy designer series paper and some of the new 2023-2025 In Colors for a rugged outdoors look. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of Fresh As A Daisy designer series paper to a Wild Wheat mat and adhered the layered panel to the front of a Pebbled Path card base with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set in Pebbled Path ink on the top of another Fresh As A Daisy DSP panel. I stamped the trees from the Grassy Grove stamp set in Pebbled Path ink on the side of the panel and adhered the panel to the card front with liquid glue.
I stamped the wolf from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set in Pebbled Path ink on a Gray Granite panel and stamped the plant in Wild Wheat. I cut the image out with the second smallest Deckled Rectangles die and adhered it to a Wild Wheat mat with liquid glue. I adhered a short length of Wild Wheat ribbon to the card with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the wolf panel over it using dimensionals. I finished the card with three rustic metallic dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set in Pebbled Path ink ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the plant next to the sentiment in Wild Wheat and adhered the panel to a Wild Wheat mat. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
If you look closely at the Fresh As A Daisy designer series paper, you will see that on the back of the pretty florals is a gentle brush stroke texture pattern that is great for subtle backgrounds and masculine cards.
