I had a request from someone I know to make a masculine Christmas card for their husband. I have made many Christmas card but never a manly one and not for a couple, so that was a complete challenge for me.
I used Flourishes "Country Time Christmas" stamp set because it really spoke to me about Christmas time and yet it was still manly, too.
I stamped out the image on Classic White cardstock, then colored it in with Copics. After coloring it in, I masked off my moon and my horizon line and sponged the sky in 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.
I also have my card on Splitcoast Stampers if you'd like to follow my link and see it there : Moonlight Merry Christmas
I really love how it turned out and I really enjoyed getting my hands inky! I think I'm going to set aside some time after the kids are in bed every night and get back to doing what I love - Cards :)
Thank you for stopping by and Merry Christmas to you!!
