Edwin does Christmas

Good afternoon!

I am here today with Edwin! He is all wrapped up in Christmas fever so much so he got tangled in the lights! hehe! Male cards are hard but male Christmas card wow are even harder so this was my challenge to myself to make a card for a male for Christmas

The challenges I would like to enter my card in are the following-

Indonesia Magnolia Lovers - For a man
Magnolia Forever - Edwin
Deep Ocean Challenge Blog - Christmas in October
Addicted to stamp - Anything goes
Time for a Magnolia Challenge-  Edwin  (Ribbon or/and lace, Dies, Tag/Label)
Papertake Weekly Challenge  - Anything goes

So I coloured my Edwin with Copics. I used DPs from LOTV's collection a' Twas the night'. I thought these papers were pretty cool for a guy Christmas card as there is a lot of denim style papers.  I used dies from La La Land Crafts and Impression Obsession. I love the die of the lights which i have placed down the side. I also used the die of the holly and berries and popped this around Edwin to tie in with the paper. The star on his Christmas jumper is a rub on from Kaisercraft from way back.  I used flowers from WOC and Kaisercraft and a ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is also from LOTV. The little embellies of Christmas lights are from Dress it up.

The sentiment on the inside is from Magnolia and I tied it together with some holly and berries again. To finish i added some red, green and clear rhinestones and some glitter glue to the lights die and the lights Edwin is holding.

Hope you like the little guy.
