52CCT - Theme ....

.... Hello!  It's time for our theme challenge here at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - 52CCT38-15Fabiola wants us to make a Christmas (or winter) card for a man.  Yea!  I love making guy cards.  Here's my take:

Merry Christmas - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Kaisercraft - Home for Christmas
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Canvas Photo Paper; Kaisercraft DP - Home for Christmas; Gem; Clear Embossing Powder


I've gone for texture on my masculine Christmas card.  I stamped the sentiment along the side of the card and then added some canvas photo paper (which I've had in my stash for years).  So, as I've used old stash I'm going to submit this card to Jingle Belles - JB:15:19 and Shopping our Stash - SOS/JB.  I'm also playing along with this week's Cardz 4 Guys - C4G#88 where the team want to see embossing - dry or heat.  I heat embossed the black Christmas tree onto the photo canvas.  I cut out the rest of the Christmas trees from a sheet of design paper, ran them through my Xyron to make them self-adhesive and adhered them to the card.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and added a Christmas greeting to the white panel.

Do visit our 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown blog to see what the rest of the team have made to inspire you.  I don't want to scare you, but there are only 13 Saturdays left before Christmas!!!  Still time to join in with our prompts to get your Christmas stash going.  Deadline for submission for this week's challenge is midnight (BST) Friday 25th September (7.00PM EDT).  Have a super weekend!

Such a great masculine card Deborah - you really are good at these, aren't you?! I love the texture, the colours, and how you've added the sentiment too. A super example. Hugs, Gill xx
