Grand Merry Christmas for the Guyz

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

Super Quick and CAS! Some bits of patterned paper fit perfectly under this 
Christmas die.  I added a little sprig for extra interest.

I lightly sponged some white ink on the raised pine boughs on this one.
The embossed piece was in my Christmas UFO box.  So was the Merry Christmas
die cut.

Nothing says masculine more than Buffalo check, Bonnie! Your 'hunter green' says it pretty perfectly, too!

JoAnn said...

Both of your guy Christmas cards are perfect. Love the Buffalo check background and the embossed pine boughs on the green is lovely. TFS

Very attractive - you have more ideas than Carter has "Little Liver Pills".

This style of sentiment die does work beautifully to make a quick and beautiful card Bonnie, and both versions look great. I particularly love the red and black check and the rich green looks wonderful too, and finished perfectly with the added white pine sprig on both. x

Susan said...

Fabulous masculine cards, Bonnie! I have that sentiment die so must keep this design in mind.

Leslie Miller said...

Grandly beautiful and perfect for the guys, but they totally have my heart, too. Love the warm, woodsy look of them.

Mac Mable said...

What a fabulous die cut sentiment and both cards look wonderful Bonnie x.

Thank you so much for leaving such a lovely encouraging comment for me Bonnie :) And thank you for inspiring me with these cards - yes, I've realised I'm short of cards and I need to get into mass production! Vicky x

Buffalo plaid makes for a perfect masculine card...and perfect for our "Traditional Christmas" challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz!! Thanks for playing along with us!!

TK said...

Beautiful cards, and kudos for using those "bits" - they make for beautiful cards!

Two great cards for guys, Bonnie - thanks for the inspiration!! I don't make too many Christmas cards for just guys but it's always great to have ideas for those few!!

Perfect masculine cards. The plaid is classic. I must have joined the MB team too late and missed that awesome die.

Christine Alexander said...

Love the plaid, perfect masculine card and those dies are great. I have the Merry Christmas and need to pull it out, it's been a while :)

Fabulous cards for the men Bonnie. Love the added die sprigs. You could enter these into The Male Room Challenge, plaid and tartan being the theme?

This looks perfect ❤️
Such a great masculine card. Loved the plaid. Thanks a lot for joining us at the The Male Room Craft Challenge. Hope to see you at the next challenge too.

Jane Willis said...

Wow, these cards are so stunning! I have that die, I hadn't really thought about how perfect it is for bold, quick and CAS cards. If I find myself needing any last minute cards I'll know what to do

Great designs with this die. I love both cards, I love the checkered background, but I love the green twig background as well. This die is quite difficult to design an interesting card, you did it exceptionally well, Bonnie
