Monarch of the Glen

The stag's head die I've used on this card is part of an X-cut Build-a-Scene set and for some reason I'd never thought about using it apart from the set - I do get a bit like that with die sets, do you? But it suddenly occurred to me that it might work quite well  in other places, such as a reindeer on a Christmas card (given a red gem nose of course) or a stag's head wall ornament.

And that's what led me to make this card, using red and blue snippets chosen to match the snippet of plaid paper from the Docrafts Heritage press collection. A bit of punching, a bit of layering and a stamped border, plus my stag's head, and the card was done. I don't think anything like this would ever appear in a Scottish castle though!

  2. Really clever thinking outside of the box Jane - or is that outside of the set? :) As Elizabeth says, wonderful pairing with the plaid paper!
