Deer Father's Day Card


Most of the cards I make have flowers or butterflies on them. Making a masculine card can definitely be a challenge for me. Instead of thinking about what I want to make, I have to stop and think about the recipient. What do they like? This Deer Father's Day Card is for my father-in-law. He used to be an avid hunter and I would definitely say he is on the conservative side. The layout for the card comes from this weeks sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I really love the tilted focal image. All the supplies for this card have been in my stash for over a year. The cardstock, patterned paper, wood embossing folder and deer stamp are by Stampin' Up!. The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts and the twine is American Crafts. I stamped the focal image on watercolor paper and used my Aqua Painter to add the hint of color. Hopefully he likes it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
