His birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks. Of course I'm making him a card, but this time I want it to be even more special since he doesn't throw mine away. The sketch at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge was perfect, I decided.
My husband's father was a hunting guide in the Canadian Rockies. My husband, as a result, grew up enjoying the great outdoors and, of course, hunting. He doesn't hunt any longer, but still loves pictures of wildlife. The Walk in the Wild stamp set may as well have been specially made for him. I decided to feature the moose.
For my base cardstock I decided to use the new Kraft cardstock. My next layer is Marina Mist and then another layer of Kraft but this time embossed using my Woodgrain embossing folder. For the narrower rectangle I used a base of Marina Mist and then topped it with a layer of the tree pattern from the Santa & Co Designer Series Paper. I attached that to the card using Dimensionals.
For the final small square I used a base of Early Espresso followed by a layer of Whisper White that I first stamped with the moose image and then coloured using a combination of Blendabilities and Stampin' Markers. I attached the square to the card using Dimensionals.
I wrapped Linen Thread around the narrow rectangle and tied a small bow. I added two banners, one cut from the Natural Chevron Ribbon and the other cut from the Mossy Meadow Stitched Satin Ribbon. My sentiment is from the Sketched Birthday stamp set and I finished up with three Early Espresso Candy Dots.
I'm sure my husband will be keeping this card, too.
