Masculine Christmas Card

Hi all - over at CAS Christmas Card Challenge they're making masculine Christmas cards for the June challenge. I always need a few masculine Christmas cards so decided to get busy and play along.


While working on another card, I went through my UFO drawer & found this cute car with Christmas tree I colored a while back. I decided a car could be considered masculine, especially since it had a tree on the top. Don't know about you but I couldn't get a tree onto my car!! Here's my card:

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; scrap strip of black
Stamps - Hero Arts Car w/Tree (retired) and CL983 Holiday Messages and Tags
Other - Copics; white gel pen; Glossy Accents; Joy ultra thin foam

I used a black strip as the road and made my sentiment into part of the car's exhaust. Very simple and could even be made into a one layer if you wanted to stamp & color directly on the card (I don't usually). Fussy cutting the car took the most time as this image didn't come with a matching die.

Thanks to the CAS Christmas team for a fun challenge and all the inspiration. I have made a few more cards I'll be blogging in the coming days. Thanks for stopping!

Super cute Christmas card, Linda! I love how you created a road for your little red car and the clever way your sentiment is part of the car's exhaust!

There is something about that car with the Christmas tree on top that appeals to me - memories of getting our own tree with the boys when we were all together and younger, maybe? Love the way you placed the sentiment behind it!

It definitely has to be a guy to get the tree on top of the car, Linda! Love that red car and the black strip makes a perfect road! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Christmas!

Adorable Christmas card Linda! I agree, this is definitely a card that a guy can relate to. You wouldn't see me trying to haul a big tree on top of my car. :) Great colouring and so creative to add the sentiment as part of the car's exhaust! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Christmas!
