CAS Christmas June 2018 - Masculine Christmas Card

Hello friends.  This month's challenge over at CAS Christmas is to create a Christmas card that is MASCULINE.


When I had been making cards for this month's Twofer Challenge, I still had a portion of unused background that I thought would work well for this month's CAS Christmas challenge.  Here's what a I came up with:


Because it's been awhile since I made this background, I'm guessing here, but I believe it's Brusho's (Cobalt Blue) and salt crystals.  I simply added a Penny Black die called Polar Bears to the bottom of the background and then layered it with a black mat.


I used a snowflake Sizzix embossing folder for my white background to add some snowy interest, and then also matted that with black before adhering it all to a white card base.  A simple sentiment from PTI's Quilted: Winter embossed in silver on a black strip finished off my Masculine Christmas card.

There's some absolutely wonderful inspiration from the DT, so check it all out right HERE and then play along.  This challenge is open till the 24th.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
