Making cards for guys can be tough. When I saw this pin, I knew I could come up with something similar, and here it is.
You'll note there's an elegance to the inspiration card that's utterly lacking in my version. I simply don't have the dies to duplicate what Daniela did. But the idea of a deer looking out from behind a tree, of a snowy background, and soft neutral colors absolutely came from her lovely card. The rest rocks a masculine vibe that will be perfect for one of my nephews.
The stamps and die are from Papertrey's In the Meadow set, and the birthday stamp is from Clearly Besotted's A Little Sentimental. The paper is one of PTI's natural cardstocks, so it's softer than stark white and works well with the light browns.
I even stamped an envelope to match.
Perfect for a January birthday...all thanks to Daniela's elegant inspiration.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
