I made a card similar to this one a few years back and it was a favorite of mine, so I revisited the idea for my Stencil Techniques class in my home. The deer is a brass stencil by Dreamweaver. I embossed the deer image on a old book page using my thick No More Shims embossing pad. While the book page was still in the stencil, I sponged the deer with brown distress ink. I removed it and sponged the edges. The kraft card base is 3 1/4 x 5 1/2" closed, so when the pennant is added, the card will still fit into an A2 envelope. I embossed the whole card with a favorite Cuttlebug embossing folder. I wrapped some baker's twine around the dark brown pennant and distressed the edges. Then I stamped an old but favorite TAC b-day greeting on a tiny tag and attached it with a small safety pin.
I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Rhedd and Rosie and the For the Boys challenge at Creative Moments.
