The Wilderness Awaits, Father's Day Card. May 2017 Paper Pumpkin

Today I thought I would make a Father's Day card using the retiring "Wilderness Awaits" set.  I didn't like how I colored the deer in but there really are not a lot of choices for colors for deer!  I suppose I could have sponged the deer and it may have looked a bit lighter, but it is what it is today!!!

For this card I used a folded half-sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then I added a piece of Soft Suede that I textued with the "Large Polka Dots" embossing folder.  Then I trimmed it to 4" x 5-1/4".

Next I cut a piece of the "Urban Underground" decorative paper to 2-1/4" x 4".  I was going to use it parallel to the edge of the Soft Suede background piece but I thought I would change things up today.  I set that piece on crooked and I kind of liked it.  Then I took a half a blue and gold donut from the May 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit and taped it to the back of the Urban Underground piece.  I taped those two pieced in place on the Soft Suede background.

Then I cut a piece of Very Vanilla 3-1/3" x 2-7/8" and stamped the deer using Basic Black ink.  I colored the deer in using the Crumb Cake marker.  I used the Smoky Slate marker on the rocks and the Delightful Dijon marker on the antlers.

The words were done on my computer. I printed them out and die cut them with the circle dies.  I set the words in place using Dimensionals.

It was a quick card to make, though I wish the deer would have been colored differently.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
