Merry Christmas, Deer

Hello, my friends! I've been a little MIA lately, but like many of us I have been spending time with friends and family, both preparing for and enjoying the holiday season. I have the last of my Christmas cards for this year to share, one that I created with the intent of it being decidedly masculine. It has already been delivered to the recipient, who approved! 

With this card I'm playing along with the Merry Monday Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, and I've chosen the column vertically down on the left: Stamping, Die Cut and Red. I'm also playing along with the final Curtain Call challenge, and it's always so sad to see a challenge blog end. My branches aren't pine, but I think I've captured the colors and masculine feel of the inspiration photo.

A little peek at my card inside and the envelope...

Stamp Sets: Christmas Noel (Recollections), French Foliage (Stampin' Up)
Card Stock: Garden Green, Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede, White Textured (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Green Plaid (Paper Pizzazz)
Ink Pads: Versamark, Evergreen (Simon Says Stamp), Soft Brown, Cup O Joe (Hero Arts)
Tools: Heat Tool, Big Shot, Deer Head Die Set (Recollections)
Accessories: White Embossing Powder (Simon Says Stamp)

I'd like to wish you all a happy holiday season, and the best in the coming year! Thanks for taking the time to visit!
