Branch Out

Here's a quick card I made a couple of weeks ago. Steve had a biking blogger acquaintance who had a bike wreck and got banged up pretty badly and he wanted me to make a Get Well card that was guy-ish. This guy is also likes Edgar Allen Poe. As I didn't have a stamp set that combined cycling and Poe stories (actually, I don't have any stamps with bicycles! *gasp!*), I went with the closest thing I had that had anything to do with Poe. I dragged out a stamp set I had yet to use (even better!!) called Branch Out. Cute little stamp set.

I used Naturals cardstock, chocolate chip ink, Ranger Distress embossing powder in black, Versamark, twill, and hemp string. I also used a corner rounder. Voila! Easy peasy card. Can you guess what Poe story I went with? Oh, and I used the awesomely awesome Stamp-a-ma-jig to line the trees up. Man, I love that tool!
