    I love the look of this card with that deer die. I also wondered if it was corrugated card stock, but then I read your answer to Robyn and saw that it isn’t. Is it striped kraft paper Either way, it’s a nice warm look. I already follow you on Bloglovin and on YouTube,and by email as Shannon Hart, or apedoak . I hope you and your family have a truly wonderful Christmas!

      It is just plain craft paper but it has the look of it, doesn’t it. That was definitely by luck.. I may try to actually use my paper crimper to see if I like the more distinct texture as well. I hope you have a fabulous holiday and thank you for your kind words!

    Hi Melissa.
    Beautiful stamp set! Every occasion is on there and that’s hard to find! This card idea is fantastic, you are sooo right, it is nottttt easy to come up with ideas for a masculine card! Great design. I wanted to ask you about the paper you used, Is that corrugated paper? I’ve been trying to find some, where can I purchase it? Thanks.
