Masculine Birthday Card featuring Newton's Nook

I can't believe it's already Monday. I hope everyone's Monday has been BEARable so far (HA! see what I did there?). And speaking of bearable.. and bears, today's post features a very cute stamp set by Newton's Nook called "Campfire Trails." This is an older set, however I just had to get my hands on it. It is just so cute and a really great stamp set for all of the "outdoorsy" guys in my life. 
I made this card for the latest Simon Says Stamp  Wednesday Challenge. Simon Says Stamp is currently celebrating STAMPtember with tons of fun giveaways, blog hops and card challenges.

So back to today's card... I started off by die cutting the Lawn Fawn stitched journaling card die out of some white cardstock. And then I stamped the very adorable stamp of Winston fishing and colored him in with Copic Markers.

Winston: E42, E44, E47, T5, T7
Jacket: BG13, BG15, BG18
Hat: W2, W4, W6, E19, Y32, Y35, C4
Fishing Pole: E35, E37, E39, C4, C6
Fish: YG95, YG97

For the sentiment, I used the "Another Birthday?" stamp from the "Winston's Birthday" set. To add a subtle border, I used my E42 Copic Marker to color the edges of the panel. I used the stitching as a guide.

For the background panel, I used the same stitched journaling card die to cut a panel from Bazzill "Candy Necklace" cardstock. I thought this teal cardstock matched Winston's vest just perfectly. For some tone-on-tone stamping, I stamped the little hook, firefly and stars using Simon Says Stamp "Audrey Blue" ink repeatedly across the panel. I used a strip of pattern paper from the Lawn Fawn "Dewey Decimal" 6x6 paper pack and I dry embossed the cardbase for some added texture. 

For the inside of the card, I decided to keep it simple and stick with the bear theme. I stamped the other sentiment from the "Winston's Birthday" set... I just love the cute pun! 

I really enjoyed making today's card and already have plans to give this card to one of my coworkers that loves to fish (how perfect, right?). I absolutely love how versatile these two stamp sets are, especially for masculine cards!

Thanks again for stopping by and until next time! ♥
