The Cabin is Calling – by Deb Saaranen

Happy Father’s Day!

to all those dads and father figures out there! We hope you all get the chance to do something you love and enjoy your day with family and friends.

Deb’s card is perfect for Father’s Day – the cabin is calling and I must go. How many guys (and gals) spend so much time just itching to get to their cabins. The cabin on today’s card is in beautiful Northern Michigan, using sets from our Michigan Series of stamps and dies. Take a look:

Even with all the color and pattern I find this card still to be so crisp and clean and absolutely striking!

And it’s flat for mailing, too!

The fun papers are from the Little Lumber Jack collection by Echo Park. Everyone loves a buffalo plaid and the sheet with the trees was so perfect for the Lower Peninsula and today’s cabin theme.

I love the crisp white sentiment square stamped in both red and black – it really POPS!

The star and the arrow are 2 of the 8 map markers included in the Lower Peninsula die set. They  make such fun embellishments for so many different projects.

Note the black shadow Deb created for the Lower Peninsula. It makes it stand out against the plaid just that much more!

A super fun card for guys or gals who LOVE their time in Michigan!
