Christmas in June

I'm trying to make at least 3 Christmas cards each month and as so far all my efforts have been either general or feminine I thought I'd make on with a more masculine feel today...

I found some Christmas stickers in a bargain bin at the last craft fair I attended, and it just so happened I already had the matching Dovecraft patterned paper pack! The crafty Gods were certainly looking down on me!

I've kept the design simple, just die-cut mounts and a plain font for the greeting (Copperplate Gothic) and some die-cut corner shapes which made me think of  a deer head ant antlers.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Allsorts Challenge #418 - Christmas in June
Just Us Girls #396 - die-cuts
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas # 336 - anything Christmas
Craft Rocket Challenges #38 - for the men/boys
Crimbo Crackers #133 - anything goes
Sparkles Christmas Challenge #77 - non-traditional colours

Thanks for visiting
