Male Card, Just Because or Sympathy Card

I am loving some of the new stamp sets, and with Fathers Day this weekend I needed to make a card quick!

During my weekly Make A Card Monday over on Periscope (live streaming app), I made this card.  I love the sentiment, which you could use on any card for that someone special.

My father passed on this life about 16 years ago, and this time of year especially.  Because literally he taught me everything I know, and how I act...well for the most part LOL

He was my father and mother, he was there as I was growing into a young lady.  And he tried his best to explain to me the changes, even bringing out a dictionary to explain the big change in a young girls life.  I look on those times now and smile, sometimes even laughing at how he went on to describe what was happening.  Luckily we were at my Aunt's house and I made a desperate call to her, she laughed and said I will be right there.

My daddy loved the mountains with all the natural beauty that our creator created, he had even thought about having his ashed spread over the Rockies, in Colorado.

I made this card with him in mind.  I had saw an art piece with trees with different colors, and it stuck in my head.  The Rooted in Nature has the perfect pine trees that I needed to create a handmade card, using my inspiration as a guide.

 I wanted to keep the card pretty simple, so I only added a bit of twine towards the bottom of the card. Sometimes it's hard for me to make male inspired cards, but with this stamp set I see lots of cards now.

During filming of this card, I had to start over 3 times.  So I have multiple sentiments to showcase this technique.

This be a great male birthday card, or even a "just because"

And sometimes we need the hardest card to create, for the passing of a loved one.

I love this card, so I am not too upset that I have 4 cards to send out.

Here are the measurements for this card, products are listed below:

Card Base - Tranquil Tide 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
Mat - Crumb Cake 4 1/8 x 5 3/8

And I have a video, one day I might make a simple post with out a video!!
