Masculine Happy Birthday

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.

  4. Kittie, this is the perfect masculine birthday card…. I love the spot of color on the tree’s… I have a birch in my yard & it looks like that… such a pretty card… thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity

  5. This is gorgeous! Such a peaceful scene! I love it! And I think the HB sentiment looks great in green – it blends into the landscape for a more subtle look. I wouldn’t change a thing! Always enjoy your cards!

  6. Fantastic Kittie…wish I could color my animals like you do…I keep trying..You do it so well. Did you do the Bleek technique with the background?

  7. Oops, the Bleek question was for the card I saw on here from October with the glossy CS and woodgrain EB folder and white deer…:-)
