3D Paper Trimmer August Blog Hop Vacation

Today we are hopping along with the 3D Paper Trimmer August Blog Hop and this month our theme is vacation. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
 One of our favorite places to go on vacation is the Rocky Mountains. Living in Colorado, we are so lucky that we can be there in an hour and enjoy the beautiful scenery, fresh air and enjoy the great outdoors. This year we have not been able to visit our favorite spots due to the pandemic and just recently the terrible wildfires that are burning in several areas of our wonderful mountains. So I thought I would share this fun fold card design as a reminder that one day we will be able to return and again enjoy these majestic mountains.

This simple Z Fold is easy to assemble and fun to create. The focal layer was created using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and I stamped the images from the Mountain Air stamp set using Night of Navy, Sahara Sand and Pretty Peacock Classic ink pads. The sky was sponged using Sponge Daubers and Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral Classic ink pads. I added the grass to the bottom of the design using a Blender Pen and Pear Pizzazz Classic ink pad. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Moments stamp set and was heat embossed using Gold Embossing Powder onto a label die cut from Very Vanilla cardstock using a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The detailed tree image was die cut from Night of Navy cardstock using a die from the Majestic Mountains dies and attached to the left side of the focal image with adhesive. This card would be great for a masculine card and works for a variety of occasions.
