Today's card is for the Paper Players clean and simple Masculine challenge #83.
Let me start by saying my inspiration is from my very dear gal pal Nancy Lempinen. She gave me a Christmas goodie using the same die cut deer and theme as my card. However, her treat was a Christmas theme, and I made mine a winter theme. So I guess this is really more a CASE, than an inspiration, but the source is the same. Thanks girlfriend!
Please stop and check out her creativity at Nanc's Niche of Stamping.
Here is my masculine card.
This is yet another card for my SIL's dad home from the hospital, but still recovering from endless trips back and forth due his delicate heart condition. It's just a little note to let him know we are always thinking of him, and praying things will return to normal.
The card is simple stamping and blending with ink and daubers. The snow is made by adding some torn vellum over the white ink. I trimmed the torn edges with dazzling details. The die cut deer were sponged with white ink to give them a bit of dimension, and I bent their antlers outward to give depth. Can you see the antler shadows?
I tried to create a sunset blending red and yellow tone inks while using white and blues to create a sky.
Here's a peek at the inside
I hope you likes my simple stamped masculine card for the Paper Players challenge, but pretend you don't notice my trees are leaning a bit, OK?
