Prima Christmas in the Country Majestic Stag Masculine Christmas Card
Hello, Friends! Masculine Christmas cards….love ’em? Hate ’em? Struggle with ’em? Well, this Majestic Stag Masculine Christmas Card post is filled with tips and ideas that will help you create a great card for all the fellas on your Christmas card list. It’s made with Prima’s Christmas in the Country paper collection and accented with a wonderful Tibetan charm from my friend LouAnn over at ButterBee Scraps.
Majestic Stag Masculine Christmas Card: Making it Manly
This is a simple 5″ x 7″ kraft card base with a top fold. Add lots of masculine elements like burlap, burlap string, buffalo plaid paper and a handsome stag image to the card design.
Copper is such a great metallic finish, and it works great for a vintage masculine vibe. The lovely stag head and clock charms were originally silver tone. Change that quick as a wink with embossing powder! First, tap the charms with Versamark Embossing Ink. Then cover with Emerald Creek Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder and heat. It’s amazing how the detail of the charm comes through as the embossing powder melts.
TIP: When using a textured embossing powder, I find it takes longer to fully melt. The embossing powder will go from grainy, to chunky, to thick and finally, as you continue to heat, it will thin out and allow the details to show. Embossed metal is HOT! Use tweezers!
First, emboss chipboard snowflakes with Seth Apter Blizzard Baked Texture. Then emboss a second time with the Burnt Copper Leaves, just sprinkling it over the chips. It’s a great look!
Majestic Stag Masculine Christmas Card: A Peek Inside
Don’t you just love this buffalo plaid pocket? Tuck a little gift card/treat wallet inside. And add a 3″ x 4″ journal card on the top to carry out the Christmas in the Country theme.
Guys like chocolate, too! So tuck a tasty treat into the pocket along with a gift card for perfect gifting.
Now that wasn’t so hard, was it?
