Hi friends. Another Christmas card to share. ;) I had this left over snowflake sitting on my desk and thought it needed to be put on a card before it got lost. The sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches helped me out tremendously along with CASology's cue word: RED.
My second card for you today is for this weeks challenge at Seize the Birthday.
The challenge was to make a masculine card using this sketch.
I created my own DSP using the stamps from The Open Sea! I love this set for masculine cards. I offset my circle a bit on purpose to showcase the anchor in the corner. :)
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Hi Kristie, both cards are amazing! I think the red Christmas one has the wow factor and the ship one has really captured the idea of masculine. Its my favourite. And way to go you for making your own dsp! I thought it was bought paper. KxReplyDelete
This is so pretty Kristie! I am in awe of you talent! Another fabulous entry into the CASology red challenge!!!ReplyDelete
You always rock the masculine cards using The Open Sea!
Two gorgeous cards. Love all the texture on the first and the fabulous masculine card on the second.ReplyDelete
Kristie both are such fabulous cards. The background on your Christmas card is fantastic and what a great masculine card--perfect stamp. Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at CASology!ReplyDelete
Both are great cards. Love the masculine one and the way you made your own DP. Very nice.ReplyDelete

gorgeous cards! thanks for playing along at Seize the Birthday!ReplyDelete
These are both so pretty! I love that gorgeous textured red with the snowflakes! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!ReplyDelete
Excellent cards both, Kristie! Of course I LOVE that red one - that ef is one of my faves, and the whole card just shouts WOW!! And you always make the coolest masculine cards. You've totally nailed both sketches, too! TFS!ReplyDelete
Fabulous cards! Especially love your red card! The white snowflake is so striking!ReplyDelete
The embossed red background is so striking on your first card and your second card is so cool! I have the hardest time making masculine cards and I have coined them on my blog as "the dreaded Man card". Wonderful creations!ReplyDelete
Isn't it great how that snowflake just happened to work for the Freshly Made sketch? And the nautical card is definitely masculine. Good job on both.ReplyDelete
You have done some terrific work here Kristie! I love that snowflake peeking out, how clever and the masculine birthday card is perfect for our challenge this week! Love the background stamping on it! Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday!ReplyDelete
Oh my! I'm drooling over that embossed background!! It goes so perfectly with your leftover snowflake! Gotta love it when you find a use for little leftovers like that! :) Love all that glorious red and the little details you added!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for joining us at CASology and thanks for the sweet comments you've been leaving on my blog! :)
Kristie - I love that your snowflake almost looks like a sunrise! It's so pretty over that embossed red panel! Gorgeous, classic, scripty sentiment, too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!ReplyDelete
Seriously awesome Christmas card. I love all the texture!! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!ReplyDelete
This is a beautiful Christmas card, Kristie! And I love what you did for the birthday card! What a wonderful way to use that set!ReplyDelete
The texture and boldness of the first card is awesome! I love that you created your own patterned paper in the second card. Great design!ReplyDelete
What a great embossing folder to use with your snowflake on your first card! It's so dense that it reads as a solid too. Both great cards!ReplyDelete
Wow, you've been busy..great cards. I love the background you stamped..it's perfect. Thanks for joining us this week at Seize the Birthday.ReplyDelete
They are both beautiful, Kristie, but your masculine STB? If that doesn't win...! I am so putting it in my faves as I have that set and LOVE this!!ReplyDelete
