Masculine Cards for Merry Monday

It's the last Merry Monday in November.
Thanks to this challenge all my Christmas cards are made.
Now to get them mailed!


Kathy is our hostess this week.  This is what she chose.


I've used the Sizzix Bigz Deer again.
He was cut from a piece of mixed media paper and stamped with
the retired Sanded Background stamp.  I used an Aqua Painter to spread the ink a bit.

Then I just popped him on a piece of embossed snowflakes.

Easy peasy!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Ink:   Soft Suede
Paper:   Soft Suede, Whisper White (SU), Mixed Media (Strathmore)

Yes! Hubby and I were just gloating about how "we" have all our cards done thanks to Merry Monday. I'm looking forward to starting them up for next year. Masculine, huh? I've got some ideas...

Love your buck, the ultimate in masculine Christmas figures.

What a great "guy" card Bonnie...I LOVE your reindeer! Your mixed media paper is FABULOUS for him (the deer), and I just really like the overall CAS design of this card. Well done!! Hope you're having a great week and enjoying the last bit of Fall color! :0)

Bonnie, this is fantastic! What a handsome deer!!

MaryH said...

Oh this guy is just really cool. Until I read the post, saw the bkgrnd stamp you used, thought you'd found a stash of very old vintage blueprints that had aged over time from blue to sepia. Such a great dress coat for this splendid deer! TFS & Hugs
