The 16-piece red rubber stamp set has a 12-piece coordinating die set.  That makes cutting the images a breeze. Your Big Shot Magnetic Platform will help you die cut those stamped images. And while you’ve got your Big Shot out, why not emboss a couple of the elements with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.

Adding layers and texture really enhanced the masculine look of this design.  I just love the oak tree image and have stamped this one in Soft Suede.

Stampin’ Up! to the rescue with an assortment of leaf trinkets to add just the perfect metal element to the card.  There is a mix of both copper and silver elements in the package.
