Joy to the World {Purple Onion Designs}

The annual Purple Onion Designs Holiday sale is going strong All stamps are 25% off until December 7!

Today's card is a masculine one that I am submitting to this week's Merry Monday #224 Masculine challenge. After cutting out the lacy scallop circle from linen cardstock, I backed it with red cardstock and stamped the Joy image using pinefeather ink. I prepared the card base by adding two narrow strips of patterned paper and silver metallic cardstock onto a kraft card base. The second sentiment from the  Holidoodle Greeting Set was stamped using vermillion ink directly to the card base. After attaching the image piece using foam tape, I added a scattering of enamel dots to finish up a simple masculine Christmas card.

It's hard to believe that it is already December 1. I am not prepared for the holidays as per usual. It's hard not to stress out about it but I am trying!

  2. Nancy, I think keeping it simple is a great way to also keep it masculine, you have managed to totally make this work...great colors and I love the added glitter strip at the bottom! Thank you so much for sharing this at Merry Monday!
