Magic of Christmas

Magic of Christmas 2012

We are in the magical land of Christmas at Cards for Men Challenge #15 for the next two weeks and we hope that you will join us. You would need to make a Christmas card for a man or a boy. I used this image from Bugaboo digital images  and it is called “Ave and Deacon ho ho”. I’m off to The CHA this week and I hope I can come back with all kinds of new and awesome idea’s to share with everyone. I will take some pictures of the new and interesting things that will be coming out. Our sponsor for this challenge is One Stop Card Crafts. Stop by and check them out.

Another fun card to make, I used some of my new dies. Spellbinder 2011 heirloom ornaments and Memory Box jingle bell glitter gold foam. Had to find some of my Christmas stuff so I was glad I had it pretty close. Aleene’s True Snow, Twinklets Diamond Dust, A-Muse Studio Stardust finishing spray, Pom Poms red and green, Christmas red glitter dots, red ribbon, distress ink wild honey. Punch a Bunch medium snowflake, tahoe flake #2 and mini snowflake glitter gold foam. The paper is from Winter wonderland Die Cuts with a View.
