Masculine Christmas card

Hello and welcome.

Masculine cards are not the easiest to make, so for this week’s challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, I turned to my husband for help with my design…

I asked his advice about what type of card he likes to receive and jotted down several ideas as we chatted.

First, I stamped a whisper white piece of cardstock using the Christmas Season stamp set by Stampin’ Up, in a variety of ink colours – certainly celery, garden green, old olive and real red, and then adhered this to an old olive base card.

I stamped the sentiment from Holly Jolly Wishes in early espresso ink onto a stitched oval die cut in whisper white, inked around the edges and popped it up onto the card.

And that was it – my husband said it needed nothing more – job done!

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week – we would love to see your cards.

Enjoy your weekend

Snow festival …

Hello and welcome. It’s the first Saturday in February which means it’s time for a sketch challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

I delved into my stash of Christmas dsp and decided on this pattern from the Snow Festival paper pack by Stampin’ Up to use on the background of my card …

It was fun colouring this cute image with my stampin’ write marker pens, taking inspiration from the dsp for my choice of colours. 

I added dazzling diamonds with a quickie glue pen for some added sparkle … 

I hope you like my card for this week.  We would love for you to join us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and show us your beautiful art work. 

It’s great to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a message.

Thanks for dropping by today
