Manly Smooch

I needed a “manly” card for a thank you, and was inspired by this:

The “thanks” sentiment and the silver icicles are die cuts, and the embossing folder is Sizzix, but not one exclusive to Stampin’ Up.

To replicate the fir trees, I punched the cardboard layer included in Designer Series Paper Packs with the Petite Penants Builder Punch, cutting 9 triangles.  I “snailed” 3 triangle shapes layering 2, 3 and 4 triangles and used a bit of snail to glue them to a Big Shot plate as shown here.  I placed a crumb cake layer over the “trees” and rolled it through.  My own exclusive embossing plate!!!  after spritzing with log cabin and gold smooch and snipping silver glimmer paper and into a strip of icicles, I ended up with this:

I am not really sure the triangles “read” as trees, so I added some twine to the big shot plate for tree trucks:

Another try at embossing:

This looks better!  Check back tomorrow for the final product!

Until then…Keep Calm and Find Yourself a Rubber Stamp!
