Layered Masculine Card

I enjoy using 3D stickers on my cards ... but I also enjoy creating my own 3D images using stamps. Case in point my square deer card.

I started by stamping a deer image with trees from Serendipity Stamps twice in brown ink on Cosmo Cricket Chicken Little patterned paper (to me it's the best sky background). I color both image with pencil and then cut out one of the deer images and one of the trees. The second one is cut into a 4"x4" square panel on which I add the cut out images with thin raised adhesive dots. This panel I add to a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square chocolate brown card. Next I cut a square frame using Spellbinders dies to match the exterior size of my stamped panel from a light brown piece of paper; which I them add to the card using raised adhesive dots. 


  1. What a wonderful card, John. I love the deer image and you are right, the Cosmo Cricket Chicken Little paper is superb for sky. I have already located some online and have it in my Wish List. I wish I could find a scrapbooking store (other than the big craft stores). I would gladly drive an hour to find one.

  2. P.S. Your dogs are fabulous. Are they Saint Bernards?

    1. Great Pyrenees ... unfortunately they are no longer with us.
