Masculine Christmas Card - Our Daily Bread Designs

What a privilege it has been to join Our Daily Bread Designs' talented team this month as their guest designer! I'm so thankful!

Today I'm sharing a masculine card. This card is quite simple. I wanted to make a narrow card, that would fit in a tag envelope, so I altered the frame from Flourished Star Pattern Die Set cutting it in half vertically and adhering the halves one on top of the other. To hide the alteration a bit I added a piece of tan gross grain ribbon that also gives the card a rustic feel to the design.

  3. I have to kick myself! I commented on the blog announcement that the card is "pretty" and then clicked on your blog, Graciellie! I see now you meant this to be a masculine card. Can "pretty" still fit? I do like the card. It definitely will work for males! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
