Created this card with lots of detail: embossing, Cricut, fabric, calligraphy & stamping.
My brother's birthday is near Thanksgiving so I gave the card a Fall masculine look.
Embossed the orange layer with a Darice Trees with Leaves embossing folder.
Used Cricut cartridge Holiday Cakes for the Fall wreath. Not sure if some know that the Cake cartridges are not just for the cake machine and have wonderful images that work on the regular Cricut machine. Cut the wreath with a yellow base, orange layer & a tan top layer. Placed the wreath over the embossed tree for a dimension view of looking thru the wreath to the tree.
Added burlap for a bow.
Used calligraphy to write 'Happy Birthday' that shows up better in person than what the photo shows.
Stamped a muse studio rock star 'DUDE.' sentiment.

embossing: Darice Tree with Leaves emb folder
