Take Time to Relax

Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you're doing well! I went to a 50th birthday party over the weekend and needed a masculine card! I perused my masculine stamp/die sets and settled on the amazing Scene Everywhere: At the Lake . I took the month off that this particular stamp set was released, so I haven't used it until now! It is such a fun set and now that I've played with it, the ideas are flowing! It also happens to be part of this week's Flash Sale.

To begin, I die cut all of the pieces I would need for the card and then stamped them using my mini MISTI. The fun thing about this stamp set is that the dock is a die cut, but then the water and skyline is a stamp, so you can stamp that and then line the dock and the boat up in the negative spaces.

I die cut a piece of Vintage Cream cardstock using the Love to Layer: Torn Edges Die and did the base layer stamping and inking around the edges, adding in a little splatter. I stamped the sentiment in black over the top. I stamped it again on a scratch piece of paper so that I could add a popped up piece above RELAX. 

I love the cute little geese/duck images that are included that you can add to the lake and the extra cloud dies.

I layered the focal panel on to a piece of Enchanted Evening cardstock and then added it to an A2 Kraft panel that was stamped using the Weathered Wood Background Stamp. I added some ink around the edges for contrast.

I didn't want to neglect the inside since this is a milestone birthday! I die cut the number 50 out of Ocean Tides cardstock using the Numbers Die. I also added a little bit of Ocean Tides ink to the edges to weather it a bit. The sentiment is stamped in black and is from the Inside Greetings: Endearing Birthday stamp set.

I  like stamping the inside of cards to make them seem a little bit more professional and polished/finished! I really should take the extra time to do it more often. Thanks for fluttering by!
