Needed one more card for a co-worker. He was recently hired so I don't know him very well. I also wanted to make a card for Merry Monday & decided a deer would be great for a masculine card. However... almost gave up as nothing I did looked good. I like the Tim Holtz embossed trees so just kept trying to make it work. A gold embossed deer (Penny Black) next to the trees looked terrible, so I took a scrap of cream paper, red embossed it & used the MFT Fishtail Flags die. Better, but too stark with the kraft, so started sponging. Ended up being able to attach the flag over the gold deer & by the time I finished with the DeNami sentiment on the green strip, I actually liked the card!
Sometimes a save isn't possible, but reminded me not to give up too quickly. Wishing all of you a great weekend as you finish preparations for Christmas. I have some baking to do so I can take a loaf of pumpkin bread to a friend I'm meeting for coffee. Thanks for stopping by.
