Christy built cute little Christmas scenes using Peekaboo Backdrop and images from Ho-Ho-Holidays, Christmas Dreams, Holiday Helpers and Toboggan Together!

Karin‘s beautiful alcohol inked background is set off behind an Outside In Stitched Heart! Her lovely design includes Scripty Love and a Fancy Wavy Banner with a sentiment from Wavy Sayings!

I love how Samantha incorporated the Ready Set Snow Shaker Add-On in her beautiful Frosty Fairy Friends design!

Caly‘s brilliant design combines two interactive elements with Flippin’ Awesome and Slide on Over! She filled the flip panels with our Village sets!

Samantha carried her adorable Shadow Box Card scene featuring Holiday Helpers all around the outside of the box!

Franci got really clever and used the A Little Sparkle coordinating die to create an adorable little key chain! She stacked together two layers of cardstock around two layers of craft foam! To make the key chain more sturdy you can laminate the cardstock layers!

Joyce combined the cute penguins from Toboggan Together, Snow Cool and Here We Go A-Waddling to create a very merry Flippin’ Awesome card!

Jessica’s Screen Time Card

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Cards For Guys challenge! My husband happens to have a birthday this month so this was the perfect opportunity to create a card for my favorite gaming nerd! 😉

To start I stamped the images from Screen Time and Christmas Dreams with Versafine and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. We have a tortoiseshell cat and two Shelties and I tried my hardest to color the animals similar to our pets. In the future I’ll have to remember to pick boring colored pets because merles and torties are HARD to color! Ha! I also stamped the sentiment from Screen Time onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder before trimming it down to a thin label.

Next I created my husband’s very 90s childhood bedroom with some plaid and woodgrain patterned paper using Knock on Wood and Perfectly Plaid Chill! I die-cut them with a Stitched Rectangle die and adhered them to a card base to create the room. Then I simply layered the images with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape for a little dimension. I kept it simple (and non-sparkly) and just finished the card with a few white gel pen accents!

And that’s it! You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!

The Cards for Guys challenge closes this Sunday, November 17th at 11:59PM ET. We love seeing all the amazing creativity you are adding to the gallery!


Have a wonderful weekend! See you on Monday with a new challenge!

A Yeti or Not Design with Franci!

Franci created whimsical holiday cards featuring our charming Yeti or Not critter! She used a fun color palette and a clever Offset Sayings: Christmas “tree” as inspiration for our Cards for Guys challenge!

This is such a fun holiday card design, perfect for making multiples for family and friends! Franci stamped the words from Offset Sayings: Christmas in the shape of a tree then she added the star tree-topper from Christmas Dreams!

She did some simple ink-blending, then attached the cute yeti, snowflakes and gift package! Everything is in a fresh and fun pastel color palette that is so happy!

Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with us today, Franci!

Our Cards for Guys challenge will continue through Sunday, November 17 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join the fun!


Happy Crafting from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!
