Nature Silhouettes

Here is a nice manly card for that special guy in your life. I am trying to do a masculine card at least once a month. Isn't that awful that we don't do more masculine cards and that we have to set a goal to do them? I'm guilt-ridden.

Anyway, this stamp set is a fun two-step stampin set. It also comes with a wolf stamp that you can stick in the woods to howl at the moon and a very nice sentiment. Click here to see the stamp set and to shop.

This card is done in Garden Green and Night of Navy to complement the colors of the Prestwick Designer Series Paper which I used as the background mat. The Prestwick is layered with Night of Navy and Brocade Blue cardstock.

The focal image is stamped on Whisper White cardstock and matted with Night of Navy. I used Stampin' Write markers to add color directly to the tree stamp: Garden Green for the grass and leaves and Night of Navy for the tree branches and trunk. The deer is also stamped in Night of Navy.

The embellishments are natural twine and silver brads. The brads are set in the centers of Night of Navy cardstock circles made with the 3/4 inch circle punch.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Brocade Blue, Night of Navy, Prestwick DSP
