Today's masculine Christmas card was created for the current Merry Monday #121 Challenge to include pinecones, greens and red plaid ribbon. I haven't participated in a while, frankly because after my Christmas in July I was a little burned out on Christmas cards. I didn't want to miss this week though because I just recently purchased a stamp set that was perfect for it.
I used the Papertrey Ink Peaceful Pinecones Stamp and Matching die set to create the pine bough with cones piece using My Favorite Things Jellybean Green and Simon Says Dark Chocolate inks and then secured it to the tag shape cut with the Paper Smooches Stitched Tag die. I didn't have any plaid ribbon so I improvised by making a bow with the My Favorite Things Dainty Bows Die-namics set cut from red plaid paper from the Echo Park Happy Camper pad. I cut the background panel from kraft card stock using a die from the Lil Inker Designs Rectangle Stitched Mats set and then added some texture using a Simon Says Peppermint Stripe stencil with Golden Fiber Paste. I deliberately made it messy. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the background piece. A scattering of sequins finished it up.
