Hi guys! So, in case I wasn't already busy enough, I decided to make a couple more Christmas cards yesterday! I have SO many IDEAS in my head for Christmas and the time ran out on me! I made one to share today and one last one to share on Christmas day. How is your weekend going? I'm having a blast! Stamping and crafting all day yesterday. What a nice day. Today we'll get back into the holiday frenzy, but a break from the outside world was needed. Hope you are doing great!
Today's card was inspired by everything Ralph Lauren for Christmas! I thought it would be nice to make a masculine card. I am always making girl cards! I chose plaid, and woodgrain, and red and a nice hunter green...combine it all together and here you have a Ralph Lauren-y guy card! Take a look!
This die says "Season's Greetings" but it was too big for this space and looked too busy with the plaid. I made my word die cut from kraft paper. You can see there's just a touch of hunter green in the plaid and I used that color for my wreath die. No stamping on this card!
Here's a close up of my focal image.... LOVE the gold! The shield is from Tim Holtz of course!
This one doesn't have too many layers so it would be a good card to mail. I wanted to add some gold bling to it, but then it wouldn't be masculine any more, would it!? I am crazy about these colors together. I will have to make more with this palette next Christmas!
Next time I see you on the blog, it will be Christmas Day!
