Thank you for visiting my blog. Feel free to browse. I needed some inspiration for my nephew's birthday card. He's a grown man and enjoys several hobbies, one of which is hunting so using the sketch from this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #467, I decided to go for a masculine, "woodsy" vibe.
I looked through my paper stash and found this old paper collection. The vertically aligned triangles reminded me of fir trees. I layered a panel of cardstock and the panel of fir trees onto a vanilla card base. A piece of coordinating patterned paper was added for the horizontal panel across the center of the card front. For the tilted panel, paper with a woodgrain pattern was selected. Using punches, I created three trees and a moose. I added the moose then sponged the edges of the trees with ink and popped them up with foam tape. The ricrac trim was added to mimic mountains and the sentiment was also added. The inside was decorated with coordinating paper.
I waited until the last minute to play along with AHSC #467, so there isn't much time left for this sketch. Their weekly challenges begin every Monday morning so be sure to visit their blog for future sketches.
