Friday Focus

Well it might have been a lovely sunny week, but today's card has a different time of year in mind as I'm playing at CAS Christmas.

I've used a stag on my card to meet the masculine influence required for this challenge.

I bought this stag die a couple of years ago for my December Daily album and it's not seen the light of day since. So time to show it some love! I used a balck star patterned paper - the stars are silver and shiny in real life - to cut this handsome looking fella.

I chose a simple font sentiment stamp which I thought was in keeping with the masculine theme and then added a little bit of shadowing around the stag using Copic pens.

Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said Christmas
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Xcut, Woodland Stag
Paper: Forever Friends, Classic Decadence
Pens: Copic, C1, C3, C5

I'm so grateful that you found time to drop by today, I always enjoy having visitors.

And keep crafting!
