Thank you deer

Good morning!  Alicia here today.  I have been in need of some new masculine cards, so I pulled out some nice masculine papers and started cutting.  I made several panels with Frantic Stamper Stitched Corner cut tags, my new favorite die set.  I began with an A2 piece of printed paper and made my cuts in the center so I could use the negatives.  I love a die that gives you two usable pieces.  Since the stitching is on both sides this die provides a wonderful frame.  I used the frame from the largest die to begin my card.  I popped it up to add dimension.  I kept the cut for another card and layered more cuts with the same set inside.

I then selected papers for my decorative die.  Unfortunately, this set is sold out but there are so many deer dies in the's the closest to the one I used:  Frantic Stamper Deer Bust.  I have already made a couple of Father's Day cards this year, so I choose to use a simple thank you.  I stamped my sentiment on a banner included in the set.  I inked all the edges and my woodsy masculine card is complete!
