You're On The Nice List!

Morning all.
The last day of the month but time for a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz. This week we challenge you to make a masculine -


Here's my take using this fun MFT Santa stamp set.

After stamping on a scrap of Copic friendly card, colouring with Copics and fussy cutting Santa, I put him to one side and concentrated on the base card. I already had one large white die cut circle in my stash so cut another to match and then a circle frame, Avery Elle, from some more scrap. Rifling through my stash of scraps again, I found a piece of DP for the background and a pierced panel from another project which I cut in half to create some snow drifts. 
Attaching the drifts to the DP, I laid it under the frame and marked the edges with pencil and roughly cut it to size before adding it to my frame with foam pads, the DP was a tad too small so the drifts filled in the gap! The frame was glued onto the front panel and after scoring a narrow edge for a hinge on the 2nd panel, glued it to the front to make my card base. To ensure it stayed stable, I trimmed a slither from the card at the bottom. 
Santa was then added on pads along with the sentiment stamped and heat embossed with white EP on red card.
So how will you interpret the theme? We'd love to see your makes in our gallery. For more masculine card inspiration don't forget to check out the rest of the team here.

Snow or Santa?
I agree with Sarah, there are some creepy looking Santas out there and I do have a few snowmen and women images but this jolly chap always puts a smile on my face so I've gone with Santa this time.

U for use it up!
