Autumn Stag Card-Make It Monday 139 At The Kraft Journal

Happy Monday and welcome to a new challenge at The Kraft Journal. This week's challenge is a color inspiration with some gorgeous fall colors to jump start your creativity!

I started with a Kraft Blank Note Card, then layered some deep red paper and a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Card Stock stamped with a leaf and acorn themed background stamp.  I wrapped the stamped panel with Natural Burlap Ribbon and made a bow before  adhering to the red layer. I then accented the burlap bow with some fall leaf die cuts,an 'Autumn' stamped tag, and a button threaded with red and green Dark Jewel Hemp Cording. The deer head die cut is the finishing touch and also the focal point. This masculine card would be great for that special man in your life with an Autumn birthday.

I hope to see you over at The Kraft Journal this week! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
