Tradional Christmas colours

This week at Cardz4guyz it is my turn to choose the challenge and I'm asking for Traditional
Christmas colours.

I've gone with red/green and gold for my card. I've used an old Penny Black brush strokes stamp, coloured the stamp with some old Tombow marker pens and spritzed with water before stamping.
I've had these pens for ever and they are still going strong ,long after my copics and promarkers are all drying up.  The red panel is embossed with an embossing folder that was free with a magazine as was the Dashing through the snow stamp.  I wish I could remember where I got the twine as I could do with some more, I like it on mens cards where it would not be appropriate to use ribbon.
Hope you will join us in our challenge, just remember your card must be masculine design for any age group.


  1. Super colours and design which make for a lovely creation Joan.

    The Ribbon Girl sells that twine and Cuddly Buddly also do it in a few colours.
