Deer in the Forest

Hi, so glad you stopped by today, Connie here with a masculine card today.

I love the depth that you can get with these Memory Box Grand Forest Archway and the Memory Box Small forest archway dies, you can also purchase the medium archway too to get even more great depth but I didn't use that today.  You wouldn't have to add the leaves to it if you didn't want to, but I chose to use a couple different shades of green cardstock using the Memory Box Grove Leaves die.  Of course you need some deer in the forest too and I used Memory Box Valley deer trio.

I started out by sponging the grass, I used stick it notes along the edge that I tore to give me the grass which I sponged on using Mowed lawn distress ink with a little Forest Moss Distress ink throughout also, then turned over the notes to cover the grass and sponged on the Tumbled Glass Distress ink with a little Broken china around the edges.

To give some lift I used Scotch foam tape on the thicker area's of my trees but on the thinner branches I rolled my score tape to give it some lift, you can see in the picture the ones that I rolled already on the tree and one that I am in the process of rolling on my craft mat.  Sorry about the glare from my light on the craft mat.

Here is a picture of the side view to see more of the dimension you get.

Here are pictures of the dies I used, the links are all above.
