Christmas Card for Him

Featured in Blog Tonic USA

Michele Emerson-Roberts

With over a foot of snow on the ground and more coming down, today is a great day to create a Christmas card with one of our favorite Tonic Studios Dies – Regal Reindeer. This versatile die from the Rococo Christmas die line. Michele created this modern Christmas card in more masculine colors perfect for anyone on your Christmas card list.
Peaceful Christmas 2
This black and cream card is created especially for the men in my life as well as my favorite brother-in-law who is a bit of a non- traditional person. Who knew how elegant it would be and is one of my favorites. This card would be gorgeous in traditional Christmas colors too.

  1. Die cut and emboss two of the reindeer from the buff cardstock.
  2. Die cut and emboss one of the sleighs from black. 
  3. Lightly sand the sleigh.
  4. Stamp the Christmas sentiment onto the buff card stock.
  5. Layer it onto black with tiny pieces of foam tape between.
  6. Create a 5 ½’square center step card from the G45™ black & cream cardstock.

Assemble the card:
  1. Attach the layered stamped piece to the top right of the center step card with tiny pieces of foam tape or dots.
  2. Glue one reindeer to the lower left, overlap and attach the 2nd reindeer more to the center of the card with foam tape.
  3. Attach the sleigh to the lower right of the card with foam tape
