ICS August Blog Hop Sale-a-bration

Welcome to the ICS August Blog Hop as we showcase products from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you to explore the products in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.
For my card design today, I decided to showcase the beautiful Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper, which is one of the products you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order of $50. I love the country Christmas feel that you get with the designs in this paper pack and I wanted to try creating a masculine card that would work for a non-holiday occasion. I paired it with the deer image from the Nature's Beauty stamp set and the Tailor Made Tags Dies. The colors I chose for this design include Evening Evergreen and Sahara Sand with a hint of Copper with the embossing of the sentiment.

This clean and simple card is simple to create and the tag makes a great focal point for the design. I love how the designer series paper gives the feeling of a forest that fits perfectly with the deer image.  Masculine cards don't need a lot of embellishment, so I chose to use a small piece of the Evening Evergreen Ribbon to tie at the top of the tag and I tied a bow around the ribbon with Linen Thread to finish it off. I popped the tag up with Stampin' Dimensionals and I heat embossed the sentiment from the Handsomely Suited stamp set with Copper Embossing Powder to help it stand out against the Evening Evergreen cardstock. I really love the designs in the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper and I can see lots of amazing possibilities to create cards for a variety of occasions with the beautiful patterns in this pack.
