Master of his Domain - A Noble Deer


Today I'm sharing a card with you that I recently created for a friend who wanted a Masculine Birthday card for a male friend of hers. I made two cards for her one of which can be found here - She liked both of the cards so much that she bought both of them!

Recently I saw another card using this set over on Leslie Miller's blog and just loved her card too. I realized that I hadn't yet posted my card after I saw her card, which you can see her card here:
For my card I stamped the Buck image (Noble Deer) with Basic Black ink and then colored the image with Prisma Colored Pencils and blended with Gamsol. Now here in the Pacific Northwest where I live we have a type of deer called a, White Tail so I decided to color my deer with the distinctive "white tail" that are found on the deer here in our mountains.
My card base is: Always Artichoke layered with Close To Cocoa and stamped with the new (SU Woodgrain Background) stamp in CTC ink. I stamped the sentiment (SU - It's Your Birthday) with Chocolate Chip ink and added 3 Artichoke brads. I added a strip of the AA cs layered with a piece of the now retired SU Designer Paper, (Parisian Breeze). I stamped and colored the pinecones in the same manner and then layered them with foam tape in the upper left hand corner to complete the card.

Ida, that is absolutely beautiful! I'm drawn to outdoorsy cards and this does look so much like our northwest country. I love how you added the pine bough and the new Woodgrain background. It's nice of you to mention me. Thank you!

No wonder why your friend bought both cards! It's absolutely stunning!
You are so talented, Ida!
