Let it Snow

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a winter/holiday card!  This is not my usual style as I don't normally make a sentiment-focused card, but I was aiming for more of a masculine vibe.  One of the card drives to which I donate is for senior citizens in nursing homes, and I like to have a good variety for either gender at the ready.


Dies: Poppystamps Let it Snow Channel, Crafts Too Snowlake Border, stars are offcuts from Memory Box Twilight Snowflakes
Embossing folder: Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow
Glitter cardstock:  DCWV (no shedding of glitter!)

I was inspired by Melissa's sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches 459:


I would like to support these fun challenges: Christmas Crafts All Year 'Round Non-traditional Colours 2/5; Crafting by Designs Get Ready for Christmas 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Washi Tape UE; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; Pile it On Holidays and/or Layers UE; Poppystamps PSC#45 For the Boys 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 1/5; Southern Girls Just A Bit Flash (strips and stars of sparkly blue cardstock) 1/3 C10; The 12 Months of Christmas Make it Masculine 2/3

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!
