One for the Men

Hi guys, i have quite a few men in my immediate family and so I have quite a few mens Christmas cards or gift envelopes to make,

I don't really do CAS as you know so I rack my brains what I can do, this year I have made a few similar ones but still slightly different,
I made a card base using Kraft card stock then layered up some First Edition - All that Glistens papers,

I distressed my paper edges and raised some of them up with 3D foam or waste chipboard to create height and interest,

I also used a die cut to cut out a star, the gummiapan doodled circle die from Swedish house crafts is peeking out from behind as well,
I added this fabulous metal embellishment which tied in with the papers and theme too,

This IO adorable deer cut from a set of deer dies out of Kraft card stock was hot glued onto the top of a piece of dried orange which again gives depth, I then used a cinnamon stick and star anise to give interest too,
Under these I tied a bow using some black twine, then a couple of berries,To finish off the card I used some chipboard by Scrapiniec, love how this gives some hints of added interest too,

I will show you another of my mens cards soon,

happy Crafting!!
