Silhouette Stag


I have a quick and easy Christmas card made with a masculine feel because we have friends who are avid hunters and they love cards like this. I die-cut the KaiserCraft stag from black and placed it upon 2 stitched oval die-cuts done with Gina Marie stitched oval dies. The first layer was done with a random piece of cork cardstock, and the bottom layer was done with Caramel cardstock. The cardbase is also Caramel, while the dsp is retired SU! The sentiment was heat-embossed with white ep using a SU! retired stamp set. I'll make a few more in different colors and probably make a few matching tags as well.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by to say "hello" and have yourself a great weekend!

Indeed this is very masculine and rustic. I can just bet a hunter will love this, and the background makes me think of a cabin in the woods (dunno why. But it did). Love the stitched narrow ovals that let the beauty of this stag's head take center stage. The cork added another layer of texture too. You do this type of card so well. Happy wkend.
