Merry Snowflakes

I've been trying to make my card designs quite flat for the holidays. I don't know about you but I like to foam mount a lot of my images onto the card base, I love the dimension it gives to the finished card. But, I find these cards don't fit into standard envelopes and then I have to custom make envelopes and that takes extra time during this busy season.

This is one of the card designs I came up with.

I did an ombre watercolour background and ran it through my die cutting machine with the We R Memory Keepers Next Level Quilted Embossing Folder. Love the depth and texture of the embossing.

I die cut two Poppystamps Snowflake Ribbons from glitter card stock and finished off with a Poppystamps sentiment (retired).

A flat card to mail and one that is easy to make.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Poppystamps December Tag Challenge



It's the first of the month so that means there's a new challenge up at Poppystamps and this month we're all about making tags!

P1300055c

I used the Main Street Tags and Stitched Main Street Tags to create my tag frame. The Poinsettia Stem is made up of layers of glitter paper and wood grain paper and the greenery at the bottom is from the Pine Boughs dies. I stamped the script background in white pigment ink and finished off with some gems and ribbon.
