my shot at a Christmas card for a male - always a tough order, but I think this one would be just about acceptable :)
I've used one of my new Penny Black's for this card - love the wintry scene. I stamped it in black, picked out the berries with a red marker and then added red glitter to give them a bright sparkly appearance. I also added a bit of iridescent glitter for a snowy look and stamped a greeting in the corner. It's matted onto gold pearlescent and dark green cardstock.
The design paper is from Paper Cellar and the inside trim is from what is left over after making the band of gold matted trim on the front. The back is similarly decorated.
I kept the embellishments simple - don't think men go for fussy - just a few green card candies on the topper and gold on the trim.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Crumb Cake for base; Neenah Solar in white for the topper; gold pearlescent card and green card for matting from stash
Design Paper: Paper Cellar Traditional Christmas 6"x6" pad
Stamp: Penny Black, Berry Red, Snow White; greeting from Anita's Magical Christmas set
Other materials: Docrafts red glitter, iridescent glitter from stash; Craftwork Cards Candi
Hopefully, I'll just be in time to submit this to Crafty Hazel's CHNC Challenge 40: for a male - that's if I hurry.
