Trees and Embossing for Father's Day

This week at The Friday Mashup Sara is our hostess and has a great challenge for us. She wants to see trees on our projects, plus she also wants us to do some embossing, either heat or dry.

I decided to go with dry embossing and used the Woodgrain embossing folder. The image is the stamp from the Look Up to Father set. I hadn't inked it up since I got it a few months ago so this was the perfect time to do that.

My sketch is from Sunday Stamps, and with the strip down the middle I interjected a bit of color, but still tried to keep it masculine looking. The only thing from the sketch I didn't conform too was the placement of the sentiment.

Make sure you head over to both The Friday Mashup and Sunday Stamps to check out both challenges.

  1. Create a project with "Trees".
  2. Create a project with "Heat or Dry Embossing".
  3. Or Mash it up and create a project with "Embossing and Trees".



  1. The woodgrain embossing looks awesome with that DSP (which I miss so much!). Super Father's Day card, Lisa!

  2. Wonderful masculine card! That woodgrain is perfect with the focal image and I love the splash of colour. Thanks so much for joining us at Sunday Stamps!

  3. Beautiful card Lisa! So happy this embossing folder is sticking around for awhile! Thanks so much for creating with us at Sunday Stamps, love seeing your creations!

  4. What a wonderful masculine card. Glad you tweaked the sketch to meet your needs… Thanks for playing along with Sunday Stamps.

  5. Lisa- great man card- love the pop of color from the DSP- it really adds to the card's design. This really caught my eye:)

  6. Lisa, this is a great Father's Day Card! I love the sketch you used and the DSP gives it just a splash of color. Very nice!

  7. Love it Lisa.. Great use of the Sketch! Thanks for joining us at Sunday Stamps.
