CHRISTMAS FOR MEN..



Hello Everyone..

Oh!..it is only Monday..I thought it was at least Wednesday..I'm tired already..lol..

Was going to say it has been a long week, but as it is only Monday, it must have been a rough weekend...I had to work and it was my big weekend, so really I have worked nearly a week...and I'm wafting.....

Today I'm sharing a few male Christmas cards...I love male cards for some reason..



Picture of a Deer in the snow off the net..no designer papers, just navy card and corrugated card...



Splatterings of white paint for extra snow....and white corrugated snowflakes.



Glitter and sentiment, a clear stamp from Kaiser..



Next up....horses in the snow, another internet find..with a Marianne creatables fence and MB pine tree branch...



More white paint splatters and brown corrugated card.



White embossed sentiment stamp...no Design papers..just some torn vellum..

So there were only 2 cards after all..

Now that's a wonderful idea. Who thinks to use wildlife, like horses, for a Christmas card? A genius like you, that's who!!! These are both remarkable cards with deep textures and a rich feeling of winter and wonderland. Perfection!!!
May your day off be here before you know it...
hugs,

These are wonderful and it won't surprise you to know that the horses are my favourite...of course!! Hope the week gets better for you xx

Such fabulous Christmas cards today Chrissy! Love the beautiful wildlife photos you've used. The corrugated card gives them such a rugged masculine look and the painted 'snow' is really effective!
Hope your day off arrives quickly!

Love making masculine cards too. No fussy or fancy details, but great textured elements and die cuts go a long way. These are beautifully made. I love reindeer on Christmas cards. Never seen one with horses before, have never fancied them IRL, but this image and design is so beautiful it goes into my favorite list of male Christmas cards. Well done!
