A Manly Christmas Wreath

This week the Squigglefly challenge (SF3113) is to make your card Masculine. Masculine cards are one of my favorite kinds of cards. I used the Wreath Nest by Marla Shega. I love the detail on this image and it was great fun to cut out an extra branch and bow and pop them up for dimension. This is my hubby's kind of wreath. If we didn't have a screen door covering our entry door, we would probably have a bird's nest in our wreath too - we have them in our awnings and the rafters in the garage. This reminds me of Fall - a season I am so looking forward to this year!


Grab a Squigglefly image and your favorite manly papers and embees and work up a masculine card for this challenge (remember that is you don't have a Squigglefly image there are some free ones in the store). The card I made is going to be my Christmas card for my boss.

Hugz!

  17. This is beautiful Nancy. I love the extra dimension you've given it by popping up the branch and bow. The sepia tone you printed it in and the raffia in the background are just perfectly wonderful!
