LTSCB Challenge 54 "Anything Goes"

I am a few hours late getting this card uploaded to blogland. It has been a very busy couple of months and I have struggled to find time to do my biweekly obligations. However, I got my card finished and was very pleased with how it turned out.

Normally for our Anything Goes challenges I like to do different types of things so that you can see just how versatile stamps and embellishments can be. This time though, I needed a get well card for the husband of a friend. He suffered a stroke a couple of weeks ago and has a very long road ahead of him. Our sponsors for this challenge are:


Prize: 7 images to winner

Prize: Image(s) of choice to winner up to $15 value from the SNS Exclusive Line
 
Prize: 3 images to winner


On You Tube this card was called a step card. I have never made one before and wanted to try my hand at it. Here is what I made:





There doesn't seem to be much difference in the first two pictures, but the 2nd one is open and standing while the first one is laying flat. The image that I used is called Cabin in the Woods by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps. I do not have a lot of masculine images. This has a rustic feel and I thought of a hunting cabin. I only used dies to embellish and build the scene. The back layer is a Memory Box die. I cut off the houses and just left the trees. The front trees are Magnolia Doohickey firs. The deer are from the Wildlife Cricut cartridge and the sentiment is cut from a Lifestyle Crafts die which I inked with Evergreen Bow Distress Ink and stamped with brown Memento. I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the smoke although you can't really tell from the pictures.

This is fabulous!! I LOVE the scene you created. Such a great idea to use a stamped image as the main focal and then embellish it with the dies. And the step card was perfect for your theme.
