My brother-in-law is an avid hunter and my sister is a saint since their home and cabin is decorated in hundreds of stuffed animals. Although I like to take pictures of these noble creatures, Kirk enjoys the challenge of the hunt and has done it in Russia, Alaska, Africa, New Zealand, to name a few, and all across the United States. The Stampin’ Up Noble Deer is the perfect stamp for a card for Kirk.
I began by using the Avery Elle Double Pierced Squares dies to create a square from Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock. I love this cardstock when using Copic markers because it does not bleed through. Next I stamped the image with Memento Espresso Truffle ink, however, I stamped off once to lighten the ink. I used the following Copic Markers to color image.
- Deer: E33, E35, E37, E41
- Grass: Y93, Y95
- Trees: E49, G28, G85
- Cloud: C1, C2
- Sky: BG0000, BG 10
I created a top folding A2 cardbase from Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock. I cut some plaid cardstock I had in my stash with the rectangle from WPlus9 Gift Card Layers die and glued it directly to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.
Next I die cut some craft cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles and placed the focal image on top to determine where to stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things Big Birthday Sentiments with Memento Espresso Truffle ink. To add some interest I took some twine I had in my stash and tied it just above the sentiment and then used a pick to spread the ends.
Next I used some 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to apply the focal image to the sentiment panel, and then I used some fun foam on the back of the craft panel, being sure to leave a channel for the thickness of the twine, and adhered it to the plaid cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
