This is the card/tag I will be teaching at my favourite local family owned paper craft store, The Cutting Garden, right here in Halifax.
I know what you're sayin'! Christmas card?! Really!? It's more of a winter card. In the card making business, you can't start soon enough to make cards for the holiday season! Some places have "Christmas in July" and "Stamp A Stack" get togethers specifically to make Christmas cards.
This is another one of those Ranger large Kraft tags, folded. Also used TH Winter Wonder die cut (snowman & snowflake). Love this die set! Oldie but goodie! He was cut using sparkly paper, and inked around the edges with DI Weathered Wood and Gathered Twigs.
The "Wish" in his belly is also a TH die cut. There is about 4 of them, "Wish", "Hope", "Love" and "Joy". Just position the die in the centre of his belly after you cut him out. I add a little tape to make sure it doesn't move around. The blue paper was cut using TH Ornamental die cut and then I ran it through my crimper (my new favourite toy!). I actually got a travel size one just this past weekend at a yard sale for a dollar!
All the paper is Bo Bunny "Woodland Winter". Some burlap and cheesecloth tucked in here and there.
After trying different DI inks to tint the seam binding bow, I decided I liked it plain. Added some tulle with it.
As well as the snowflake that came with the snowman die, I also used 3 dies from Cheery Lynn and layered them. The centre of the snowflakes are Dew Drops.
Inside, left. This snowflake die came with the snowman die. A blue Dew Drop in the centre.
