Christmas in July 3 - Warm Wishes

After several days of Design Team projects I am back with Christmas in July card # 3. I combined homespun patterns from the Basic Grey Jovial pad with an image from the My Favorite Things Inspired by Winter set to create a masculine card. The Cat's Pajamas Pinking Border CutUps for a sawtooth pattern and a simple tag topped with Linen Thread provided the only embellishments. Black matting on all the elements made everything pop. I used an MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch (MFTWSC56) from weeks past for the layout although I moved the elements around and made it into a square shape.

Christmas Card Tip of the day:  Keep embellishments to a minimum for a more masculine card.

  1. Love the use of the plaid and black to give the card a masculine feel. And great tip!
