Good Saturday morning. My project today is very similar to many I have made in the past. I needed a masculine birthday card for a friend and I thought the deer from the Birch Tree Accessories and the Birch Tree Cutting Plate would be perfect. You’ll need to take a close look at the ground area where I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the new Impression Obsession Greetings Top Edgers. If I had it to do over again I would have used red for the sentiment. I added a few branches of the Leafy Branch for additional dimension and interest and added a few red birds from the Small Bird Set to add a touch of color to the scene.
I started by cutting the frame and attaching the sentiment edger to it with ATG. I cut the birch frame, applied ink to the trunks and the knot holes and attached to the back of the frame with mounting tape. I stamped a few trees on the card base and lightly sponged in a blue sky. I wanted to draw the eye in beyond the deer and birch. I attached the frame to the card base with strips of rolled up 1/2” double stick tape.
I colored the deer using distress inks and mini applicator and attached in the scene with mounting tape. I attached the foliage branches in the scene using glossy accents and rolled glue dots. The red birds were attached with rolled glue dots.
Here’s a closer view of the birthday sentiment.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend and I sure appreciate you stopping by.
