A Manly card with Drum Set and A Santa Christmas Card in Red and Green

I love making manly cards but because no occasion then I did not make it for long time..and now so many Father´s Day challenge out there.......I think I like to make one for my hubby`s bday it will be in August and I am ready to make it now :) LOL

I took my old clear stamp with Music things and took the Drum set,(my hubby loves playing drum). And I also took MFT Dies 2x to make the frame cause I dont have frame DIES...

I also took the Embossing folder and embossed the white paper behind the main Image. The HAPPY is PTI Dies and the Birthday is from Create  A Smile Dies.

I love the white and white look of this card.

Challenges for my first card are:

CASology Week 250:

I also made this card for some Christmas Challenge out there:

I first stamped the Hero Arts Santa Image in the middle. Colored with Akashiya SAI watercolor Marker. Then I stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle. The Edge of my card I stamped with WPLUS9 border stamp.

I added some sequin as accent. I can called my card finished.

  28. The drum card is super masculine, I love that you made it white on white, all the focus is on the image and textures. For me the cards for my family are the hardest to make, I want them to be perfect for them and always try to make them well in advance.
    Fun rustic Santa and traditional Christmas border, a great mix, super CAs look.

  29. Great Christmas card but fabulous white embossing and dies with just the black drum kit a great effect and texture
