|Merry Monday has a "chalkboard" challenge.|
|Jingle Belles says "text me" — make a card|
with text as the main focus.
|Just Us Girls is looking for a tag element.|
|My Favorite Things (MFT) has|
a sketch with a tag!
When I mashed all those challenges together, I got this:
When I think about using the chalkboard technique, I always think of this, my one and only subway art-style stamp. Instead of black, I went for the green chalkboard look to be seasonal. None of my standard tag dies were large enough, but I used the bottom of a wine tag die and rounded the top corners so it would be a little bit fancy. I used my current favourite die (MFT's blueprints 24 stitched rectangle die) to cut the patterned paper panel. A circle of the same paper adds a decorative element to the tag... and yes, covers up where I pulled the twine too tight the first time, sigh.
And with that, I've made TWO Christmas cards this year! :P
