I would like to share a Christmas card with you which was inspired by Tag You're It Challenge. In my usual style I am linking up at the last minute! This seems to becoming a habit, a bad one at that! I blame the fact that it takes my absolutely ages to make a card as I am constantly chopping and changing my mind. Anyway here is the inspiration tag. That Santa is hilarious :)
Here is what I came up with:
Gerda Steiner Designs Clear Stamps - Holiday Friends
Lil' Inker Designs - Anytime Tags
MFT Die-namics - Blueprints 15
Lawn Fawn Dies - Stitched Hillside Borders
Simon Says Stamp Dies - Stitched Squares
Simon Says Stamp Dies - Holiday Shapes
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Snowfall -Discontinued
Memory Box Stencil - Tiny Snowflakes
Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste - White
Neenah Cardstock - Desert Storm
Zig Wink of Stella Pen - Clear
Zig Wink of Stella Pen - Gold
Harris Tweed Fabric - Red
Tim Holtz String - Red
I was inspired to use my recently purchased Santa stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs Holiday Friends Stamp set. I coloured him with my copics and fuzzy cut him out. I added wink of stella to the trim on his outfit.
I die cut a tag out of desert storm cardstock and used my tiny snowflakes stencil and white embossing paste to create a snowy scene. I then die-cut a snowy base for santa and glued it on. I used foam pads to mount Santa onto the tag. I added a die-cut star coloured with gold wink of stella to the top right hand corner. I then threaded some red string through the tag.
I used desert storm cardstock to create my base and then used the large stitched rectangle from blueprints 15 to cut out a panel of white card. I used one of my favourite winter embossing folders using the debossed side for my card. I attached this rectangle to my card base. I felt my card needed something else and played around for a while until I found a small piece of harris tweed that had previously been the inside of a coaster. I used a stitched square to die-cut a piece. I then glued this onto my cardbase and mounted the tag on top using some foam tape and glossy accents. Finally I added some gold wink of stella to some of the small debossed snowflakes.
