Deer Dad

This week's challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids is about creating a card with an animal on it. I don't have a card for the child directly but one for a child to give to his/her father. Especially if the father is an outdoorsman.
I am not a fan of deer antlers. When I bought a 6x6 pack of a variety of vellum prints from Stampin' Up! I didn't quite know what I would do with this antler print. But. I think it works really well for Father's Day. I found the deer profile in Windows clip art, copied it to a word document, added the sentiment and then printed it on a sheet of vellum. The antler vellum is tacked to a white background, then I wrapped the deer vellum over the top and bottom. That is backed with black and then glued to a white card base.

And the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is Monochromatic so I am linking up there also.

For something I almost discarded, I've decided maybe I like the antler print after all. I guess this is why you don't discard papers you don't like. There is a chance you will eventually find a design that works for it.


  1. I'm not a fan of antlers, either, but I think your antler print works perfectly on this card. Love the deer on the vellum. Isn't vellum awesome to work with? I love using it whenever I can.

  2. Great masculine card. The deer on the vellum is great and the antlers work.. who knew :)

  3. Great job! And yes, the antler paper works great for a masculine card! Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown!
