52CCT - Colours ....

... Hi! Yesterday, while I was messing around with shaving foam for our technique challenge at The Male Room - TMR#42, I thought it would be fun to make a Christmas card for this week's challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT32-16, where we have the colours RED, BLACK, KRAFT. I'm very late with my card for 52CCT, but I'm pleased with it:

Stamps: Clearly Besotted - All Occasion Sentiments
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Basic Black
Dies: Winnie & Walter - In a Word Joy Cutaway
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Real Red, Basic Black; SU DP - Seasons of Delight

I put red and black ink on the shaving foam, swirled it around and printed a couple of sheets. I die cut the word "joy" from the marble-effect paper and also from some scraps of red and black card. I layered the marble word on the red and black card to give an offset shadow effect. I covered the card blank with some dotty kraft paper. I kept the front quite clean. On the inside I cut a mat layer of the design paper and on the white panel stamped a Christmas greeting. As the focal point of the front of this card is a word, I'm submitting this card to Cardz 4 Guyz - C4G#133 - where they want to see words.

The shaving foam looks fabulous in these colours too. Think I'm going to have to give it another play!

This is great Deborah, I love your funky shaving foam pattern. And that word die is great! I've seen a few grungy, messy Christmas cards recently, and they really appeal to me, although I've yet to try my own!
