It was so nice to have company come but for the last week or so I have sure missed out on my stamping hobby gone wild. So it was a pleasure to once again get back into the groove with this simple card design.
I chose to use a Gina K. Designs Large Snowflakes Foil Mate design, Deco Foil Ocean Blue, Gina K. Designs Season's Greetings stamp set and dies, Zig Wink of Stella, Crafter's Companion Glue runner, the Gina K. Designs Decorative Tag Die set, blue chiffon ribbon and some blue metallic rick rack. Of course, that meant a laminator was used for the foiling process.
I just love the look of the foiled snowflakes and adding some Wink of Stella to the snowman sort of matched the shimmer a bit I thought. Both the snowman and the sentiment come from the same stamp set. The snowman was stamped with Black Memento ink and colored with Copics. The sentiment was stamped with Gina K. Designs Blue Lagoon ink.
I am so pleased with the way this turned out and I love the stitched design on that tag. I think that adds so much to the layout and by placing the tag that direction it worked great for the sentiment.
I am entering this in the November Rudolph Days Challenge
in which we can use any Christmas project of our choosing. I almost always go with cards but at least this time I used a tag on my card as well.
Well, I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. My company just left today so we are trying to get used to a quiet house with just the two of us again. But we had a great time visiting and playing lots of card and board games.
Thanks for stopping by and for all the great comments as well.
