Card ministry: Men's cards February 2012

This card was also made for the current www.stamptv.com Friday challenge.
Here's the challenge link: http://stamptv.ning.com/forum/topics/free-for-all-friday-challenge-case-the-dt-jennie-harper  - Be sure to follow the link to Jennie's page and see her gallery! (Click on Photos in the left-hand column)

Here's Jennie's card I CASE'd: http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/masculine-get-well?context=user
Here's my version:
Jennie has quite a couple of cards using one of my favorite sets: Tree Silhouettes (GinaK Designs). I just had to use it again.
On white card stock I first stamped the tree with Tim Holtz Antique Linen. I then stamped over it with Pine Needles BUT I would stamp off once on scratch paper before stamping over the background trees.
The sentiment was stamped on some leftover card stock. The right edge was rounded and the edge all around distressed with Antique Linen. I also rubbed some Antique Linen over the trees and edges to darken the white.
The tree panel was glued and then stitched to the background DP.
I used Twinery Twine on the sentiment section and popped it on with foam tape.

Stamps used:
Tree Silhouettes (GKD)
Garden Silhouettes (GKD)

Materials used:
Tim Holtz Distress ink:  Antique Linen, Pine Needles
Memento Tuxedo Black
Twinery Twine - Cappuchino
Background DP: Bo Bunny "Et Cetera Stamped"
Background black panel: Tim Holtz

Tools used:
Tonic paper trimmer
Corner rounder
