A Manly Christmas Card.

It's time for a new challenge in The Male Room and this week the theme is CHRISTMAS. So this is the card I will be giving my other half this year - he never reads my blog so he won't be getting a sneak peek!
Here it is take a look


This card is inspired by some artwork I spyed recently at a local craft fair. The artwork in question was enamel on metal by an artist called Kevin France and both myself and Clive fell in love with it - it's very expensive however so this will have to do till we win the lottery!
I've used soooo many stamps to create this: stamps I've made myself, some Barbara Gray stamps and of course some Stampin' Up stamps. The foliage stamp at the bottom actually has a moose attached to it - I just coloured the bits I needed with a marker!
To make it a bit more Christmassy I was going to add some glitter - I didn't think my hubby would like it so I left it off - shame, I LOVE glitter!
Thanks for looking - do pop over to the blog and check out the other dt projects and I will see you soon xx

  1. Jacqueline - this is wonderful! I love the scene you've created - it does have a cool, frosty feel (I think glitter would be fine!). Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Deborah xx
