Buffalo Check, In the Pines, Coming Home and More from Stampin' Up! Masculine Birthday Card from Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Today just happens to be my hubby’s birthday so the featured card was made especially for him.  We love cabin life, relaxing in the outdoors, fresh air, lake life you name it.  With the weather comes the resurrection of my buffalo plaid collection, as well as my Buffalo Check Background stamp! I paired it with the In the Pines Bundle, the Coming Home Bundle as well as sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthdays and  Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets.

Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  Distress the edges with a Bone Folder. 

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.  Use a Paper Trimmer to cut down to 4 x 5 1/4.  Distress the edges with a Bone Folder.

Double wrap the bottom with Linen Thread, securing with a bow as shown.
