Masculine Christmas Card

Welcome again to another Tuesday Throwdown challenge,

Today’s challenge is to make a Christmas card for men/boys. Talk about a challenge!! I have a hard enough time making a masculine card; now I have distinguish holidays cards as feminine and masculine!!

Alright, I’m pulling up my sleeves and digging into this challenge – and here is my thought process. Masculine = brown, green (no pink); minimal flowers or ribbon unless it’s in something masculine like burlap, canvas or pinstripes. I guess I should also try to skip the pearls and bling.

So here is my attempt:

Our prize sponsor this week is Dude Time Doodles. Come play along, I want to see how you make your masculine Christmas cards. Tree image is from Dude Time Doodles; sentiment is from Inky Antics, DPs are from Authentique Papers (calendar print) and Crate Paper (Pinstripes). Flower was die cut on burlap.

Have a great day!!

    Fantastic masculine card, Steph, and I loved reading about your logic in choosing colors, pieces, etc. Your burlap flower is so fun, too — yet another thing I’ll have to try!
