A Masculine Christmas Card

I wanted to make a Christmas card that wasn't all fancy shmancy so it could go to a guy. Many of you probably have Uncles, brothers, cousins, or guy friends that would appreciate no frou-frous on their card, I'm sure. So I chose to use this gorgeous tree from the Verve set O Christmas Tree. I Rock 'n Rolled it with Espresso and Pesto Adirondack Ink, and added a bit (just a little) of bling with some tiny rhinestones (Zva Creative). The sentiment is from the Verve set Blessed Christmas. All the edges were ink distressed with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress). If you click on the picture, the tree shows much better. For some reason it *glows* more here. Don't know why.

Hope you're having a nice weekend!
Happy Stamping my friends!

I think this is the perfect masculine card. Those are always so tough...why must men be so difficult:) I love how this "glows." I wish I could capture that in a card...it's exactly how Christmas makes me feel. You are truly amazing. To be able to capture a feeling and put it on a card... I am SO in awe of you.
