I have always loved how Iris Folding looks so when I saw one for a deer I thought it would be perfect for my co-worker that loves to go hunting. Her favorite color is pink and she conveniently loves pink camouflage.
I tried different ideas for a camouflage background and finally decided to use a Q-tip and 4 colors of distress inks: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, Barn Door to color the background paper. I waited for it to dry and then put it into my Silhouette to cut the deer from it. I used brown paper for the body of the deer and a darker brown paper for the antlers.
I stamped a Happy Birthday on a distressed watercolor piece I made (while I was trying to figure out how to do the camouflage background) and layered that on a piece of blue card stock.
As for the inside:
I used the deer cutout from the front and attached it to the inside card. I then stamped a birthday sentiment.
I will be entering these challenges with this card:
Sparkles Monthly Challenges - Happy Birthday
Cas-ual Fridays - Celebrations
Watercooler Wednesday - It's a Celebration
Lemon Shortbread Challenge - Anything Goes
Enjoy your day!
