2015 Christmas Card #8

It's been a while since I last made a Christmas card. Well for me that is as I like to make Christmas card throughout the whole year. This is card number 8 so far in 2015.

Seeing Cohenna's card over at CASE-ing Christmas I had a hard time eliminating ideas. But I finally settled with a really quick card idea, a bit CAS and masculine in design, inspired by the layout.
The sentiment is from Create With TLC and I used a die from  Lawn Fawn to cut it. I embossed the kraft paper and used a Tim Holtz die to make the bow. And finally I added 3 star sequins and attached a pearl to each. Easy!

I'd like to enter my card in these challenges:
1) CASE-ing Christmas - CASE #17
2) Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - 20 minutes or less
3) Simon Says Stamp - Clean and Simple
4) Cards und More  - # 130 No Motive
5) Rudolph Days - April Anything Goes

Like the way you've made this wonderful masculine look into a pretty Christmas card. It is perfect for a fella, and would also be great for any business Christmas card. Very modern, but says all that needs to be said. Love the message and the texture background, tied together with the bright red bow! Well done! TFS & Hugs

Marina said...

When I look at your card I ask myself if I've ever embossed kraft card and if not, why not? It really has a fabulous effect. I'm enjoying today noticing the familiar things that you've used in slightly different ways. Inspiring.
