Lovely Deer Birthday

Guess what? Someone is having another birthday. I bet you can't tell what their interest is. Just in case you can't figure it out, I will tell you. He loves to hunt with his dad.

This card was fun to make. I put a lot of detail into it. I cut out the pine tree (lovely as a tree) and the deer (nature silhouettes). I wanted them to stand out and look like they were in the front and the line of trees are in the background. I think it worked. I was not going to put the strip of dsp (autumn spice) vertically going through the background at first. I had cut it off of the mat to make it fit on the base of the card better. When I was almost finished I put it on the background scene and loved the look.

I wanted to add a little bit of "wow" to the card by adding crystal effects to the trees. I used the same effect on another card I did a few weeks ago for my husband. It just adds a lot to the card.

Here are 2 different views of the card which show the dimension. Like I said before. I had fun making this card. I always love to see the end results. I never know when I start what it will look like in the end. I think that is part of the fun of making a card.

As always, I used all Stampin' Up! products. I mentioned some of the items above that were used. Here is a list of some of the other things.
Cardstock: cajun craze, whisper white, autumn spice dsp
Stamp sets: nature silhouettes, lovely as a tree, and teeny tiny wishes
Ink: crumb cake, old olive, early espresso, more mustard, and cajun craze
Tools: stampin' sponge, modern label punch, word window punch, and crystal effects

Now it is your turn to tell me what you think. Please leave a comment!! I also pray this inspires you to pull out your stamps and cardstock and create a card or 3-d project for someone you love or has made a difference in your life.
Thanks for visiting my little part of the world.
Now go-n-stamp!!

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. I did not say in my post, but the young man is my daughter's boyfriend. I wanted to do something special for him.

this is a fabulous card - were my FIL still with us, I'd have considered casing this card for him. TFS!
