Masculine Retirement Card

Hello! So glad to be back after a bit of unexpected time off! I have a simple masculine retirement card for you, put together with stamps and product from Stamp Simply!

I began with some dark chocolate colored cardstock. The mid layer has been embossed with a Sizzix/Tim Holtz 3D Cracked Leather embossing folder. I inked a bit of Versafine Clair Pinecone ink onto the textured inner flap of the embossing folder to enhance the leather coloration before running it through the machine. 

The cattails are from Stamp Simply's "Autumn Silhouettes" and are stamped with Versafine Clair Acorn ink onto creamy cardstock. The panel was die cut with a Spellbinder Deckled Rectangle die.

The sentiment is from Stamp Simply's "All Occasion Sentiments Set Two" stamp set, also stamped with Acorn ink. It was then die cut with a Stamp Simply Fishtail Banner Sentiment die.

All linked supplies come from Stamp Simply.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
