Silhouette of the Forest Stag
by Donna Peachey
Hello, my name's Donna and I'm the newest addition to the Poppystamps team.
With Christmas fast approaching, I thought it might be nice to share a card design that is fairly easy to mass produce and suits more than one occasion.
And what's more, as I've chosen to use the strong, bold silhouette of the Forest Stag I've been able to introduce a grunge element, too!
Want to know how it's made?
Here's a quick 'how to' guide...
Start by applying ink to a scrap of card that is roughly this size and shape.
Here are the colours you will be using. I went back in with a finger dauber to add a little more shadow once I had the stag cut out.
Cut out the Wooded Glen Landscape and trim it to size to fit your card front.
Then, cut out the Simple Holly Vine Frame and a piece of black card that is a little taller and wider all 'round.
Add the grunge element! I'm using stamps from the Studio Blotter set. Stamp first in Hickory Smoke, then add Delicata 'Brown Shimmer' just around the edges.
Assemble the card and add a few sequins.
It's as easy as that!
Whether you see this as a Christmas, Birthday or some other Winter occasion card is entirely up to you.
Which will it be, I wonder?
