Postcard Pals Congratulations Card

Postcard Pals Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Joe and I are so blessed to have 6 amazing sons, 5 fabulous daughter-in-laws and 14 incredible grandchildren.  We love them all so very much, but today I want to honor our son, Jonathan who recently successfully defended his dissertation to complete his Doctorate Program!  Such an occasion calls for a handmade card.  For countless years, Jonathan has signed all his family cards and correspondence as Awesome.  So I turned to the "You're totally Awesome" sentiment and the adorable beaver from the Postcard Pals stamp set for his card.

Jonathan defends his thesis

Congratulations Doctor Jonathan Feicht!

Yesterday, the Winter Woods stamp set took center stage, but today its plays a supporting role.  I admire the way that the Winter Woods stamp set plays so well with others.  Today, it supplied the 3 background trees for my beaver.

More Card Tips and Tricks

I color washed my background with Pool Party ink, the fussy cut my 3 trees.

My beaver was colored with Stampin' Blends and popped up with dimensionals.  I also popped up my sentiment.
Freshly Made SketchesA big thanks to Freshly Made Sketches for today's Card Sketch.  My trees and sentiment follow the sketch closely.  I took a little artistic license and added the beaver.
