Challenge #24 - Cards for Men - "Merry Christmas"

Good Morning Everyone, well today over on Cards for Men we have a brand new Digi Designer and that is Andrew Walker, hes the husband of our Team Leader and Owner of Cards for Men and he was asked by Donna to start creating digi stamps for us to play with and now he has started his own website called "Scribbled Kidz" and you will find it here.


He is offering a fabulous prize of 3 digi images of winners choice.

Andrew has based all his designs on his young sons and I think you will be surprised at how fabulous they actually are, I do hope you will go and visit the website and see for yourself and hopefully you will be encouraged to buy some of them, as they are very reasonably priced to.
We were lucky enough to be given a few of the images to play with and I chose this one for my card.


This little lad is writing up his list for Santa so its titled "Dear Santa" and I have printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, then used my Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut him out then drew around the metal die to create the mount out of red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and the papers I have used are from Echo Parks "Very Merry" Christmas papers, the first one a red background with white snowflakes on the second is a grid pattern and the third a newspaper item, I layered them on the base mount at angles.
I then positioned my mounted image in the center and cut out my sentiment with one of the new Britannia die from some of the red card and then positioned it across the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used three buttons and stuck them down the right hand side.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and then maybe you to will take part in the "Merry Christmas" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
