PRIZE STAG

Decided to have a go with CAS Christmas Challenge this month - make a masculine card.  A long time ago I won the stag die from Ellen Hutson and he hasn't seen much love - mainly because I don't do that many guy cards.



Cut the stag from some gold foiled paper and then 3 more times with white - stacked them all together and used a gold pen around the edges.  The holly leaf wreath was die cut, sponged with distress inks (shabby shutters and peeled paint) and used the gold pen again on the stitching lines.  Put it all together with some red sequins, patterned paper and a little sentiment.

Thanks for visiting today and love to read your kind comments.
