Card Sketch Tuesday #159

Happy Tuesday! Here is sketch #159 and measurements are below! How about a masculine Christmas card this week? Well, that's what it turned out to be...

Measurement are: Card base 4.25 x 5.5
Burgandy layer - 2.5 x 4.25
Green layer - 3 x 4.75
Stamped image - 1.75 x 2 3/8
All layers are matted with a 1/16 border.

The moose is colored with Copic Markers and is from The Angel Company (retired). The color of the red is garnet R39, but it's looking kind of pinkish in the picture. This card ended up being very country or masculine looking!
The green designer paper is from Kaisercraft and I ran it through the new Cuttlebug plaid embossing folder that I got at HSN, which I hear is no longer available. Bummer!
The tag is cut using one of the tag nesties that I have and anchored on with black brads. I added two more self adhesive black pearls to the Burgandy cardstock to match.

Here is a close up of how the stamped image is colored. The moose almost gets lost in all that red plaid! LOL!!!
The set also comes with three evergreen tree's and I stamped and colored those, cut them out and glued them to the inside of the card (you can see it on the lower left hand side in the first picture). Since I'm just finishing up all my Christmas cards - the inside sayings - I have now decided that I'm going to finish off as many cards on the inside as I possibly can! It was the pits having to go back and add them at a later date!

Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think of my masculine Christmas card! Have a great week!
