Masculine Deer Birthday Card

A friend of mine is celebrating a birthday in a few days and I always find it a challenge to create masculine cards. 

The Nature's Wish stamp set has some terrific animal images that has made that a little easier. The deer and the sentiment on this card are from that stamp set. I chose to use the Basic Fundamentals for my card as that is always a reliable go-to paper pack for anything. They are neutral colours and patterns and work with any other colours. I chose to add green as the grass was green so it was a natural colour addition. Around the stamped deer image, which was coloured with watercolour pencils and and blending pen, I just poked holes to simulate stitching. 


The card pattern is from the new Make It From Your Heart - Volume 4 and it is Pattern #5.

Products used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated:

Paper: Basics Fundamentals, Espresso Cardstock, Mink Cardstock
Stamps: Nature's Wish, Springtime Wishes (ret.)
Inks: Fern, New England Ivy, Rich Cocoa Memento Ink (not CTMH)
Accessories: Watercolour Pencils, Blending Pen (ret.), Foam Tape, Enchantment Ribbon Collection (last year - ret.), Fern Twine (ret.), ShinHan Markers, Springtime Wishes Thin Cuts (ret.), Piercing Tool

Enjoy,
Alyson
