Blue Christmas Card

What's your favorite Christmas color scheme? Do you like the traditional red and green or do you prefer something non-traditional? This week the challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is to create a masculine Christmas card using your favorite Christmas colors.

When I started thinking about my favorite Christmas colors, well I found it hard to pick. Through the years it's changed many times. To decorate our Christmas tree I've used: Gold/Silver/White, Purple/Silver/White and our tree now has ornaments of all colors. Since the card is for a guy, I decided to ask the hubby for his input and Blue/Silver/White was the winner.

The layout for this card is simple and one I use a lot. To fit the tree image by Inkadinkado, I made a larger card. The finished size is 6" x 4.5". The blue snowflake patterned paper is by The Paper Studio and the glitter polka dot paper is by Best Creation Inc. The tree image was heat embossed using VersaMark and silver embossing powder. I used an EK Success snowflake edge punch and used some blue rhinestones for detail. It didn't turn out ruggedly manly but the hubby said it would work for a guy, so I believe him.

We would love for you to join us this week at Cardz 4 Guyz! Click here to check out the inspiration from the rest of the design team. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

My Blue Christmas Card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. This is a elegant blue card -- so special and a great design. You always think outside the box and come up with something grand.

  2. Yep I think your hubby was right about the colour, but I would wouldn't I!

  3. Occasionally it's useful to have a guy on hand for those sorts of questions! I love the texty tree & the perfect little snowflake embellies :)
