Going Masculine~

I just wanted to give a little shout out for Michelle's store Stamper's Dream. She's offering free shipping on domestic orders over $75!! And you can upgrade to priority for $3.50. Way cool. Love a good deal on the shipping!!

I do realize Father's Day is long past, but I didn't get an opportunity to upload this card until now. I made this for my Father-in-Law, but it could easily be used for your favorite hunter, or a birthday card for a guy too.

This was pretty easy. All I did was stamp this Diamond Buck by Northwoods with Espresso (Adirondack) ink onto Kraft (Stampin' Up) twice, and colored him with copics. I then cut one buck out and layered it on top of the other so I could make his antlers pop our a bit more.

The Always Artichoke (Stampin' Up) panel is embossed with the distressed stripe Cuttlebug embossing folder. I hand wrote the sentiment, and finished it off with a neatly tied knot of May Arts Chocolate Satin ribbon.

All the panels are raised with Scotch Mounting tape.

Stamps - Diamond Buck (Northwoods)
Paper - Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Kraft, Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up)
Ink - Espresso (Adirondack), Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger
Accessories - Cuttlebug, brads, sponge, dimensional tape, Copics
