Deer Trio

Hi everyone!   I needed a masculine birthday card and those are always challenging for me.   However, with the new Deer Trio from Memory Box, it became much easier!  

The card base is kraft paper.  I cut a beige mat using the new A2 Matting Basics B and then a smaller mat with the next smaller size.  I embossed the brown, smaller mat using the Bricks and Bark M-Bossabilities.  LOVE how this worked!   It did require a different sandwich in my Cuttlebug - A plate, M-Bossabilities with cardstock inside, C plate.  It seemed like it wasn't quite as tight as I'm used to but I got a good imprint.

I cut a white Mega Ovals, LG from Spellbinders and stamped the trees.   I cut the Deer Trio from white cardstock and sponged it with Antique Linen.  The Deer Trio comes with a paper base when you cut it out, but I wanted them spaced differently, so I cut the base away and mounted them with varying heights of foam pads.   I used gold lines to frame the card front.

I did a similar design inside, just on a smaller scale.  I used a Birthday Rubz for the sentiment and adhered it to the white cardstock by using a McGill stylus.  The Tweezer Bees are great for placing mats and other items on your cards.  It keeps fingers out of the line of vision.  :-)
