Christmas Cards for Men

This week, we continue to make cards for the men and boys in our lives.  Beverly from Bev's Creative Path is back to join us for round two

Here are our Masculine Holiday cards:

Beverly says, "When I think of masculine, I always think of pick-up trucks.  Maybe it was because I wanted to ink up the Gnome Peeking stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.  I stamped the images and colored using alcohol markers.  I used my Scan 'N Cut to trim them.  The sentiment was cut out with a circle punch.  The patterned birch tree paper is from a paper pad by Recollections.  I finished it off with two different washi tapes at the bottom and a baker's twine bow in the upper left corner!  I want to thank Stephanie and Lauren for inviting me to guest design for their fun masculine challenge."

Lauren says, "These are some of the simplest cards ever made, thanks to Graphic 45's Christmas Time collection, which I got at Paper AnthologyI cut out the steampunk-inspired journal cards, gave them all skinny black mats, added Eyelet Outlet HollyStarCompass and Gear Brads and called it a day. Two more cards added to my holiday stash!"

Stephanie says, "I started with a natural handmade paper for my slimline card base and topped it with a green Gel Press printed tag.  I adorned my tag with a 
3-D cookie/candy jar tag, a DYMO-like sticker sentiment 
and topped the tag with a fun Santa Hat."

All three projects in the reminder posting are as fabulous as those in the main/first one!!! Excellent cards and wonderful interpretations for masculine Christmas.

Fab cards! Life has been really busy for me these past few months, but I'm hoping to play along and do some serious Christmas card stash building.
