Masculine Card for Allsorts Challenge

Hello and welcome!
It's Saturday again that means it's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. It's Wendy's turn to host this week and she wants to see something for boys or men. Hope to see you joining us this week. We have a great prize by Rare Earth to give away to one lucky, randomly selected winner.

Maybe this card looks familiar to you. I made and shared a similar one a couple of months ago, using a similar design and colors, but there are differences, you can take a look at that card here

I started out by inking the background using Tumbled GlassPeacock Feathers and Pumice Stone  distress inks, then used stamps from the Penny Black set Nature's Friends to add to the scene. The trees (cut with the Penny Black die set  Beneath the Bircheswere adhered to the inked card before adding the embossed frame.



To make the frame I first dry embossed a white card stock using an old Cuttlebug embossing folder (I can't find this exact one, but there are alternative options) then I used a die from the Wonky Stitches die set, but used the "negative" instead of the stitched piece as a frame. This was then adhered onto a white heavy weight card base.

  3. The soft subtle inky background is perfect to allow the Deer and trees to pop Ellie, I'm like you if I find a design that works for me I tend to make one or two more with slight variations.
