Masculine & Feminine Christmas Wreath with Digi Stamps

Hello! Today I have two cards to share, one is a more masculine version, and the second is feminine colors.  Both were made with the same Digi Stamp I got from Power Poppy.  I have only used Digi Stamps a handful of times, but these were so pretty, I couldn't pass them up.

(Click on photos to enlarge.)

I used traditional christmas colors, plaid papers and some old wood veneer embellishments to add to the masculine feel.  I did use plain version of the digi stamp and added my own sentiment with a stamp.

For both cards I used my alcohol markers to color it in.  I colored the images one day and then put them together into cards the next.  The paper pad is one of my favorites and it is almost gone!  

The next card, I wanted to use pinker colors and a more teal color for the leaves. I really like the way it turned out.  For both cards, I did pop up the focal image with foam tape to give the cards more dimension.

I added some glitter gel pen to this one.  It is pretty!

Supplies: Power Poppy Felt Leaves and Fruits Digi stamp, Kaisercraft Christmas Sentiments stamp set, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, My Mind's Eye Christmas Wish 6x6 Paper pad, Sakura Stardust Gel pen, embellishments from my stash.

I would love to participate in the following challenges:
Merry Monday #224 Masculine (First card)

ModSquad Challenge - Holiday Dimension

Pretty, pretty! I especially love the colors and papers in your masculine card. I bought all these wreaths, too, but don't know if I'll get around to coloring them this year, tsk tsk. Power Poppy has some gorgeous digis! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Double D!

Wonderful cards, the plaid definitely does have a masculine feel to it while your second cards is softer more feminine. Love seeing the two in one post for comparison.

How gorgeous. I don't work with digis either which is a shame because there are some nice ones out there. I love the plaid paper. What a great way to embellish--with wooden snowflakes. Love how bright your image is coloured.
