Welcome to Week 15 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase. This week we have an important staple colour : Early Espresso - the new Black!

For the previous 14 weeks of Colour Creations, I have been making really feminine cards. With a strong colour this week, I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and create a masculine card.
I have spent a great deal of time over the last week planning my World Card Making Day event using the Tag Buffet Project Kit and Stamp set. The images in the stamp set are simple and bold, and so I was keen to see if I could pull off a masculine Christmas card using Early Espresso. You know every year when you have that one single, male family member that you want to send a Christmas Card too, but all your cards seem to "frilly and fussy"?
Who would have ever thought of a brown Christmas card? But, I like it!
Not frilly, not fussy, perfectly suitable for an adult male - favourite uncle or older brother.
The lovely background layer is one of the Early Espresso pieces from the Regals Designer Series Paper Pack. The stocking is stamped on a separate piece of Very Vanilla card, lightly coloured in part with the Crumb Cake Blends Duos, and fussy cut as it is such a simple shape to cut out.
Thanks for stopping by! Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
