Elegant Dasher

Today I'm the Designer at the Card A Day Blog an this week's theme is Christmas and Animals. We have Daily Inspiration, Weekly themes, and a chance to win a Gypsy this month! So hop on over there is you haven't check it out yet. 

I need to make several Christmas Cards for guys only and this one fits the bill.  The non traditional colors combined with the argyle pattern paper is what makes this card perfect for the guys. 


I stamped Dasher and embossed him with gold embossing powder.  I like to measure around my stamps that are wood mounted to get their measurements then cut my cardstock and finally stamp.  It just works better for me than trying to cut the image out afterwords. I punched jewelry tag out twice and used it behind the "merry" tag.

I used blue seam binding on this card instead of the gold ribbon. (I tried several time to take a picture of the card straight from the front, but the gold embossing just out shines everything.)

Thanks for stopping by.

Cindy you did a fantastic job on both cards and it is a nice one for a man. Love the way you put the bow off side of the image and it all ties together. I have some of that background paper and may do the same for some man cards, but without the dasher don't have that one. It's nice to see the same stamp used in a variety of ways too. TFS
