A Masculine Christmas Birthday Card

Howdy to all and happy Monday!

Today’s card is all about a guy having a Birthday close to Christmas.  I enjoyed making it, I hope you enjoy taking a look ~

This time of the year just happens to be the peak of Deer Hunting Season.  Our friend is an avid deer hunter; hence, choosing the deer die. 

Although is doesn’t show up very well, the black cardstock is textured.  Maybe looking closer might help ~

The neck wreath was punched with the Boho Blossom punch and then using the 1/2” circle punch to make the whole in the center.  I punched two and then off set each giving it a little more fuller look.  The deer was sponged with Crumb Cake Ink and the sentiment heat set with gold EP.

I tried to mount his head, as a trophy on the inside ~

You know I understand the need to thin out these beautiful creatures, but one look into those beautiful brown eyes and that would be it for me!

Here’s a peek at one of our beautiful brown eyed creatures…….Bodie!

Gorgeous. I have a man friend with a birthday this week and am having a hard time figuring out a card. Did you hand-cut the deer? From what? I think I have every die in the book but I sure don't remember this one. Thanks for all you share, Tina
