I Brake For Bucks

Hi everybody!  Regina here and as you know, deer hunting season is almost here and so I thought I would make a card using this Buck stamp from I Brake For Stamps.  This is a great stamp to use for a masculine card.  I cut off the top of the stamp as you can see on my card with a plan in mind.  I colored it about 4 weeks ago and decided to make a card with it this week and forgot what my plan was LOL!  I cut it off because I didn't want blue sky to show but I can't remember why.  :(  Please tell me I'm not the only one who is like this.  

Here's the stamp... 

I used embossing folders as you can see on the card background and the background the stamp is on and sponged ink around the edges of the die the stamp is on.  I cut a couple pieces of camo ribbon and adhered to card, adding bronze brads in corners.  I colored the stamp with Copics and I asked my boyfriend to make sure I colored it accurately and he said yes.  Yay!  I cut the stamp out with a die and cut off the top part of the stamp (for whatever reason?!?) and cut out the leaves and For You sentiment with dies.  Supplies listed below.  

It is kind of difficult to make masculine cards and I usually don't put ribbon on them, twine maybe, but not ribbon, but I made an exception here.  I usually make masculine cards pretty CAS but I tried to add as much as I could to this one to see how much I could do and it still be a masculine card. This card will be to display in my boyfriend's reload room so I made it 6" square.  

Supply List:

  • Recollections 110# white card stock for base
  • Gina K Designs Fresh Asparagus, Kraft and Chocolate Brown card stock
  • Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs ink (used to sponge around die)
