Challenge # 6 - Use a Tag on your Christmas card
I used the inlay technique to fill the tag's cut out lettering which was a bit tricky. I tried a product called Peel 'N Stick which was super sticky - it was not forgiving if you put your letter in at a wrong angle! I had to recut a few letters and put glue on them, after struggling to get the misapplied letter out!! Not to mention getting my fingers stuck in the open spots while I was filling in others. I definitely liked Stick-It better for this type of project. Here's my inspiration card:
Supplies: Paper - Kraft card by unknown, Anchor Paper black; the Paper Studio Pine St. Square & Old World Winter patterned papers and glitter paper; My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas (special edition) - for the Santa head;
Dies - Xcut Do Not Open Tag, Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes, My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 20, Circle die by unknown; Other - May Arts ribbon and string twine, foam tape
The tag alone on the card layers looked a bit plain so I decided to put something in the top corner to anchor it. I found the perfect vintage Santa in a circle on a piece of MME paper - yay! I really liked the addition.
How are your Christmas cards coming along? I have over 40 cards made already - I'm so excited!!
Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful Monday!
