Continuing on my papercrafting roll, I have a tag for Day 15 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags as well as a card for Merry Monday!
Tag first... there are many cute, shaped tags on the post today, so I went along with the trend and made a round one too:
I cut my tag out of watercolour paper than added some Twinkling H2Os in blues and mauve. While that dried, I got the front part of the tag ready. The deer is stamped in brown and embossed; the sled in black and embossed; while the trees are embossed in verdigris embossing powder, which is one of my favourites. The deer and sled are watercoloured with Zigs. In hindsight, I really didn't need to add embossing paste snow to the tag base, since only a few are left showing — and it meant another drying wait time. I found a teeny blue tag and even a sentiment that would fit on it! Finally, some cord and jingle bells to finish off.
Onto this week's Merry Monday challenge, to make a card using gray, white and red. Last week's card would have almost qualified! But it's a new week and a new challenge and a new card:
I used a little bit of black ink for my bird — I hope it's allowed! I did try him in gray, but he just didn't look right, more like a blob than a bird. The birch trees were kind of lost directly on the patterned paper, but a simple white circle solved that. He looked like a singing kind of bird, so that's how I decided on the sentiment.
I'm back tomorrow with a special tag post! 😊
