In Wilderness- bison


So I had a book by Diane Galbladon that was falling apart, it has been sitting on my closet shelf for 7 years, and I'm not sure why I never threw it away. I decided to use it for cards.
  • I put snail around the edges of a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper white, I then sponged the page edges with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede layered them this way and that way over the Whisper White then re cut it to the 4" x 5 1/4" size.
  • The card base is Crumb Cake lightly sponged with Soft Suede, layered with the pages then with the image.
  • I colored the stamp with Early Espresso and Soft Suede on the bison and Always Artichoke for the grass. I stamped it on Very Vanilla, roughed the edges and sponged lightly with Crumb Cake, layered it on Concord Crush, edges roughed, then on Soft Suede.
  • For the phrase I stamped it in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla, punched with the Word Window, then re punched with the Word Window to make it smaller, layered it on a piece of Soft Suede punched with the Modern Label, with brads on the ends.
My son Ryan is 16 today, he has spent the summer up the mountain working at a boy scout camp, his younger brother turned 14 last week and is now up there working as well, they are home for about 24 hours a week. So tonight, to surprise him, the family is going up to camp to celebrate his birthday with 80 of his co workers. The camp has a chef(by all accounts, a wonderful cook, my son who never puts on weight and is as skinny as a rail has gained 5 pounds), is making birthday cake, this is the card I am giving him as a thank you.
