Sorry i’ve been kinda MIA. I really needed some time to let life catch up with me, or maybe it was me catching up with life. (thats also why i must apologise for the iPhone photo – my big camera needs to be charged at some stage when i get a moment)
Today’s MAN-day Monday takes on a Christmas theme – look at this cute little mister snowman! So its not a very manly card, but it could definitely be used for a dude.
This is a stamp from a Unity Stamps kit of the month, and he is so easy to cut out, i think i will be using him A LOT. To make the card manly, I chose to use this fabulous grid stamp from Hero Arts. This is a great stamp for backgrounds, as a lot of my other background stamps are full of girly elements like flourishes and hearts. Mixed with a little kraft and some brown ink also made the colour palate a little a more masculine. I was tempted to use glitter or rock candy distress stickles for snow, but was afraid that this would make it too girly. Mister snowman looked too isolated sitting there on his own so i added a little piece of white felt for him to sit on.
Thanks for stopping by, and tomorrow I am going to be giving away some craft supplies so be sure to come back to see me.
