One for the Men

Finally! A Christmas card that is suitable for the men in our lives. I have got so stuck in pretty, sparkly and cute that I was beginning to despair that I would ever make a male card this year.

Thank you so much to some challenges for giving me the inspiration that I needed to create this.

I was saving this card to post on here tomorrow but I've just realised that if I do, I'll miss a couple of the challenges that I made it for. So I'm posting it now. I'm entering this into (in alphabetical order):

A Crafty Little Place - Anything Goes
Cards For Men - Christmas
Crafty Ann's - Sketch and/or Christmas (I just did Christmas)
For Fun Challenges - Make a card that is not square or A2
One Stitch At A Time - Old Stash New Stash (Old is the bearly mine CD that I printed the stripy paper from and the Dovecraft Tag Templates that made the oval tag. New are the stamps - a combination of Waltzing Mouse, Stempleglede and Paula Pascale)
Polka Doodles - All About the sentiment
Stamp and Create - 'Tis the Season
Stamp Something - Christmas Colour Combo
The Crafty Pad - Anything Goes
Wild Orchid - An Old Fashioned Christmas

This type of card is just perfect for layering up. The photo above shows the layers that it has been possible to create on this card.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

This is great, nice to see something a little different. (Though I still love cute and sparkly, don't get me wrong!) The purples and greens are lovely.

A lovely card! I do hope you can play along with us again & thank you so much for sharing with us over at Polka Doodles. (just a little tip, one of our rules is that we only accept cards entered into a max of 10 challenges including our own to qualify for a top three place :( Such a shame for all of us on the DT when we can't vote for a card like yours!)
