Masculine Christmas Cards

I enjoy creating Christmas cards with non-traditional colors. Today, I opted for a neutral palette which is perfect for masculine Christmas cards.

I’ve combined Stardream Metallic Crystal and Curious Metallic Lustre and Chesnut with woodland themed pattern paper for the ultimate masculine vibe.

Ink to Embossing Folder Technique

This technique is so easy and impactful, but I’ll be honest I forget about it from time to time. Pick your favorite embossing folders, swipe a tone on tone ink on one side of the folder, and emboss your chosen cardstock.

I used We R Memory Keepers Wood Grain Embossing Folders, Stardream Metallic Crystal cardstock cut to 3.75 x 5 inches, and Distress Oxide Pumice Stone to create a tone on tone effect.

Simon Says Stamp Large Gnome Die is too adorable for words!! Heidi Swapp Wolf Pack 6×6 Paper Pack provides a variety of watercolor and nature patterns to create woodland gnomes.

Lastly, I finally purchased other colors of Nuvo drops, but couldn’t help but keep things neutral. Today, I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Oyster Grey, Nuvo Jewel Drops in Aqua Plains and Grey Mist.

That’s a wrap, folks. Thanks for joining me today and I’ll be back soon with more inspiration.
