Thanks for stopping by today!  Today I’ve created a card that would work great for any occasion.  I especially like it because it can be a masculine card.  For some reason we don’t see to many masculine cards.  I’m glad that Stampin Up® has designed an entire suite that works for such cards.

For this card I used the Beauty of the Earth Suite by Stampin Up®.  This suite includes the Beauty of Friendship Bundle (stamp set and dies), Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper, Bark 3D Embossing Folder.

Note: Cardstock colors that coordinate with this Designer Series Paper are Merry Merlot, Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Misty Moonlight.

I must admit when I first saw this suite I wasn’t sure if I would like it but now that I have it and I have made several cards with it, I’m in love!

Below you will find the Card cuts, Instructions and Supply List.
