Adventure Ahead

I so love realistic wildlife stamps, they are an awesome choice for creating masculine cards.  I am a little bummed though,  I so wanted to share this complete stamp set with you. When I created this card… this stamp set was still available in limited quantities.  Sadly, it is now sold out!

I am so thankful for the sketches at Mojo Monday.  I was in a time crunch to complete this card…and the ever so helpful measurements at Mojo Monday helped my card come together quickly.  Here is a look at the original sketch design-

My card is pretty basic. A few layers with papers from the Hawthorn Paper Collection, which is still available. I heat embossed my elk image and colored with Copics. I then fussy cut and applied to my layered circles. No frills, but perfect for a masculine card.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
