Ho Ho Ho!!

 I wanted to try and make a "proper" guy's Christmas card.  When my hubby saw this card I'd made he thought it was brilliant and said it's just his thing, so I think I might have got it right.  I might have to do some more browsing / buying on a Make It Crafty now to find another one for him for Christmas :) This particular one is Hopter Santa and is kinda Steampunk looking.

The image is coloured with ProMarkers and then cut with a die.  

I didn't want to use too many embellishments on the card with it being for a guy.  I've only used some red self adhesive pearlised gems and some red glitter letters from Hobby Craft to make the Ho Ho Ho up.

Papers used are from Lili of the Valley Snow Princess, Festive Trimmings and Simple Joys.

I'm entering this card into
I Love ProMarkers - A Male Christmas Card
CRAFT - Christmas
Crafty Cats - Christmas is Coming
Without Words - Preparing for Christmas

Hope he's as popular with the folks at work.  I'm taking my cards in soon to sell them :)
