Tag It for Xmas

Friday at last and a fabby weekend for crafting and everything else that's been neglected during the week.

Challenges:
Christmas Cards All Year 'Round: Keep it crafty ( I hope there's enough craft)

Materials used:
Backing from something I bought, can't remember what. I cut out tags from it, embossed with two plates (Cuttlebug and Creative Expressions), distressed with Distress inks.
 I stamped PB poinsettias with Brilliance ink and stars with Distress ink, splashed dots with Distress crackle paint.
The poinsettia is cut out with a Britannia die and the leaves with a Quickutz die, some Distress inks, Stickles, and half pearls added.
 The sentiment says Happy Christmas in Swedish, can't recall the make. The background paper is DCWV.

Thank you so much for visiting and leaving encouraging words, it means a lot! Hope you'll have a wonderful weekend. I guess I have some house hold chores that need to be done, but I'll fill in the gaps with some fun.

Love and hugs
Maarit

  1. Simply gorgeous. I always wonder how to use tags and this one is a sterling example of how a tag can look so pretty on a card. I just used the small SU tag punch to create a couple of tags from some packaging cardboard, and you've given me some super ideas. Of course I love the poinsettia & the lovely embossing on the tag, but oh that background! TFS & Happy wkend.

    A beautiful card, with stunning colours. The background looks amazing and I thought your little poinsettas were stitched. The added white detail is just perfect.
