Christmas for a Hunter

Greetings friends.  Today I wanted to share a card with you that I made for  my boss for Christmas.  He's a hunter so I went with a forest theme with deer.  The deer are from CottageCutz called Filigree Deer.  I did not put their little jackets on them as I wanted this to be more on the basis of a hunting theme with an outdoor feel.  I painted the deer with glue and sprinkled brown glitter on  them to make them festive.  The trees are Tim Holtz Sizzix Pine Trees and they were crimped. (Marisa your crimping always inspires me)!  The row of trees border at the top was sent to me from my friend Benzi and looks just perfect on this card.  The tree stamp for the background is Rubber Stampede called Pine tree and I just sponged some clouds.  The snowflake sentiment is from Recollection.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate it.  I will have lots to share this week as I have been busy in the craft room putting the finishing touches on my projects.  See you soon!

Oh, I got back just in time to see you use my little tree border. I love your crimped trees. This is an awesome card for a hunter or any masculine card.
