Treeline Men's card (easy)

Another card on the theme of Men's easy cards. This one could equally be another type of card, just by changing up the colours,  even a sympathy card, as it is quite a tranquil and peaceful card.

I have a Christmas stamp set called Vintage Christmas, which has a stamp in it that is a line of trees, and I thought it would make a great masculine card.

A very easy card to put together, I used some paper from a Lemoncraft paper pack that was woodgrain, and stuck it onto my card base.  I stamped the treeline stamp from the Christmas stamp set, onto Strathmore Bristol smooth watercolor paper with black versafine onyx black in and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I then coloured it very lightly with tumbled glass distress ink, just to give a hint of colour.  I made a bunting with a piece of hessian fabric and cut a fish tale into it, stuck it onto the woodgrain paper.  Next i backed it with some left over grey card that I had when I cut our my card base, leaving a little bit top and bottom. 

Next I made a sentiment in the same bristol watercolor paper, made it into a banner and tied a bit of hemp string around one end. 

Stuck that down with foam tape and that is literally the card done and dusted.  
A very simple card for me, but the men in my life don't like fussy cards, so it will be great for them.
