Today is the 1st of May and that means the new Dirty Dozen Christmas Challenge is up. This months challenge is Masculine Christmas. Create a card around a masculine theme or masculine colors, have fun with it. Be sure to add keywords SCSCCMAY13 so we can find your creations on SCS.
We have several friends that are still single so a girlie Christmas card is never an option. There are some great masculine type Chrismtas images out there that are perfect. Here is one called Cowboy Christmas. Last year I made several for my sister and her hubby to give out as they love this set.
My image is stamped onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink. copic collections poppy, flesh tones 2, pistachio, new fields, buttercup. Once colored I layered onto some Color Made Easy Rich Brown collection cardstock.
My designer paper is from an old Christmas pack that is out of stock. My sentiment was perfect for the back side of the designer paper. Added a little scalloped edge to the side and some ivory jute with a button from the 123 Create Kit Vintage Finds that tied off a the top. There is a hint of sparkle on the pine sprigs yet yard to see in the picture. Thanks for stopping in with me today. Hope you can play along with us this month.
