CASology Week 231: FOREST

Welcome to Week 231 at CASology!

The cue word this week prompted me to make a birthday card for my dad. I always seem to run short of masculine cards and, given that he is a retired professional forester, this theme was made for him.

My dad is the one that taught me you can tell the age of a tree by counting the rings and I think of him everytime I see the Concord & 9th stamp used first on the white panel. The stand of trees is added next with the simple PTI birthday sentiment stamped last.

Check out the Design Team cards for some great inspiration!

We are looking forward to seeing how FOREST inspires you -  just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until Monday at noon (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog. 

Thanks for stopping by,




  1. I love the wood rings in the background Jacquie.

  2. I love your take on this Jacquie with the subtle tree rings.

  3. Jacquie, this is such a soft but masculine card. And that's a great memory to share with your dad :)

  4. Jacquie, Happy Birthday!! Your birthday card for your dad is very cool...I love the subtle C&9 tree rings as a background for the pine trees. beautiful, sounds perfect for your dad given his line of work (although retired). Great card!

  5. The subtle tree crosscut is perfect for the background, Jacquie.

  6. What a fantastic card--I love the bold tall and skinny trees and that fabulous background of tree rings.

  7. Your card is absolutely stunning Jacquie ! That's also my father who taugh me how to know the age of a tree ! I'm sure your father will appreciate your card, it is full of lovely sentiments !
    This stamp is absolutely wonderful, and the layout you made with it is just perfect !
    Thanks for sharing!
