A Non-traditional Christmas Card

I made this card for my husband who is a hunter and has a number of clothing items with the various Realtree designs.  I cut the doll with the Paperdolls cartridge at 5 " and then cut the needed clothes to match.  I had to locate a picture of the fabric with Google and print it to use for the clothing. I also printed a page of bark and cut the tree which I popped up with foam dots. The card was made from gray cardstock; finished size 5x7. I chalked the top with 2 different blue chalks for the sky and the bottom with brown and green to resemble the ground.  The chalks were blended with a kleenex--nothing fancy!! The inside is rather plain with the sentiment printed in green on tan paper with a chalked edge. I am quite sure he will like it!

Stamped Tile Coasters

I made a few sets of these stamped tiles as gifts.
