A "Man Card"

I got busy and made a nice card for my Dad's birthday which is coming up the end of the month. I got out one of my favorite masculine sets - Noble Deer. I chose True Thyme card stock and stamped it with the Weathered background stamp. I think that made a nice background for the deer stamp.

I stamped the whole deer image in True Thyme ink then colored just the deer directly on my stamp using my Chocolate Chip marker. After stamping the deer image onto Kraft card stock, I lightly added a little color using my pastels. I added the words "Dearest Dad" to the bottom from the new Fancy Flexible Phrases set.

I cut a strip of Kraft 5 1/2" to go across my card and then stamped a border using the tree image stamped in Thyme. I added some faux stitching to the border design using my mat pack template and Chocolate Chip marker. Then I matted both images on Metallic Copper card stock, added 3 copper vintage brads and assembled the card. The main image was raised up using pop dots for a 3-D effect. I like the way it turned out... I hope my Dad likes it.
