Our theme for this highlight is encouragement as we all need a kind word said to us to build us up.

Hi Friends! Hope you have a wonderful christmas!

I made a Thank you card for a man requested by James(My husband) that don't make it pretty, don't put any flowers. I've never made a Thank you card for a man, so I was so struggle to make one, cause I only have flowers and baby theme stamp sets and die sets.
I thought leaves aren't flowers lol so I used leaves....!

I only wanted to use leaves for this design, so the sentiment needed to be bigger than normal to make it look balanced. Thankfully I had the perfect stamp set which is from the 2017 Spring/Summer catalogue which Stampin' Up demos get early access to. It's available for general release in January.

I stamped the leaves on kraft cardstock and die cut them out. I used the line stamps from the same stamp set to give leaves a bit more of an interesting look as they looked a little plain on their own.

I really like how the card came out. The kraft + whisper white combination is going to be my "For a man" default colour pallet from now on, :-)

Quick process video is also available to watch on here or my youtube channel.

Thanks for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog - to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.
