I created this card using one of my fave stamp sets, Always Grateful. I wanted a masculine looking card, with a hint of fall, for a family friend who is in the hospital awaiting a heart transplant. I pulled together a neat basket of goodies for him, and stuck in a little homemade card to cheer him up.
I used some neutral cardstock, and dry-embossed a double line about 1 1/2" apart. I then masked the top and bottom and sponge-daubed some Desert Sand ink over top. With the same ink (and keeping the mask on), I then stamped some leaves over top of the sponging. I stamped the tree in Cocoa and added a sentiment. Super simple, but I liked how it turned out.
