I am taking over Gill's blog today as she has had a domestic disaster so I hope that my card does her proud.
The theme is thinking about male cards, so for this one I have gone with a black and white theme.
I started with the background and used a very dirty Watermark Pad from ClearSnap and a Jumbo Dauber.
around the edge a page of black and white from the 8 x 8 Tartan Pad and embossed it in silver. Then I distressed the edges with the Woodware Scruffer.
I usually use the scruffer before I emboss but this time I did it after to give a contrast.
I have used one of the stamps from the Jane Gill set Christmas Cheer that has five thoughtful Christmas verses. The card is the Black Textura 12 x 12 and I have used the Tag Top Punch, I really don't know what I did before I had these punches.
A very simple and fast card that you could do in any colour of tartan if you don't think black and white are Christmasy.
Thanks for popping in, hopefully Gill will be back with you next week, and remember to check out the rest of the posts on Woodware Witterings this week.
