Just Right!

Have you ever noticed the stamp set called Nature Silhouettes in the catalog?? Well, it's one I've admired and finally bought recently. I love nature, love silhouette style stamps and my hubby and son are into all things outdoors- so a perfect fit! Anyway, this is the first card I've made with this set and it is for my husband's birthday at the end of this month.

I started out with the Mojo Monday sketch from yesterday. Then decided to use the kraft patterns from Urban Oasis DSP, and finally some Always Artichoke patterned paper. The tree is embossed with Artichoke craft ink and clear EP but my ink spot is SO DRY that it barely was enough to emboss. Guess that reinker is on my next order!

I really love the look of the deer standing under the tree branches but that is too obvious I guess, so I decided to stamp my sentiment there and put the deer head in my circle hodgepodge instead. Hope you like it!

TFL,

  5. This is a fantastic card. What an imaginative way to use this set! Ha ... when I first looked, I thought you'd used the Crimper, but it's striped paper! How cool.
