I made this card on request from someone who wanted a very masculine Christmas card for their husband. I have never been very good at masculine cards, let alone tried one for Christmas. But I wanted to really swing for the fences and give it a go.
I am happy to say that both she and I love how it turned out! I think that's about as manly of a card I can get :)
I used a stamp from Flourishes called "Country Time Christmas" and colored it in on Classic White cardstock with Copics. Then I masked out my moon and horizon and sponged in my sky with blue Distress Inks. After removing my masks, I cut my cardstock down to size and fitted it over my background cardstock, I stamped my sentiment from Flourishes "Start of Bethlehem" set and heat embossed that in. I popped my image up on foam popdots for depth and interest (off my background) and added some pearls near my sentiment to complete my card.

Oh my goodness! This is one of the most beautifully colored scenes I have ever seen. Your sponging in of the horizon and sky are perfectly amazing. This is a wonderful gift for all of us to see in the gallery. Merry Christmas!
PS.....I can only imagine how much your friend loves this! You are a wonderful friend.
