New Challenge @ Cardz 4 Guyz #C4G326


Today begins a new challenge at...

Cardz 4 Guyz // #C4G326 ...A masculine challenge with a "Christmas in July theme!!  We wanted to do our part so that December isn't so stressful!!  So...let's see your masculine Christmas cards and maybe it will also help us get ideas for our Christmas stash.  Starting on those Christmas cards mid year sure does help, or better yet work on that stash alittle each month!!  For my card I did use poinsettias but I used deep rich greens and reds to make it masculine.  Your turn...hop on over to our blog, check out the other team members cards, and then join the fun and play along with us.

#C4G326 // Christmas in July

3 other challenges inspired today's card...

Retro Rubber Challenges // #rrcb210 ...A sketch challenge!!  Not only a sketch challenge but we are to used stamps that are at least a year old.  Stamping Up's Ringed With Nature set that I used for this card came out July 1st 2023 so it is over a year old!!  Barely but it does meet that part of the challenge!!

INKspirational Challenges // #293
...A word prompt challenge!!  The prompt for this challenge is exactly like our's over at C4G..."Christmas in July"!!  Great minds think alike!!  When it comes to card making it is a good idea to start thinking ahead and planning out those Christmas cards!!

Addicted to Stamps & More // #449 ...An "any occasion" challenge!!  We get to pick the occasion.  So...I picked Christmas!!  How could I not with all this "Christmas in July" talk!!

Update:  This card was chosen as a "top pick" over at the Retro Rubber challenge blog.  What an honor!!  Thanks to the design team for the shout out on this card!!
