I am so excited to be able to share with you this month’s project with for our Fancy Friday monthly hop! If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. My friends and I want to be able to share with you our ideas in a monthly format. We will use different themes each month – sometimes colors, sometimes a sketch, sometimes a stamp set focus. The one thing you can count on is that it will be fancy! Over the last year “fancy” became our word to describe the best projects, the best new clothes, even the best pedicure colors. Now we want to share with you our take on “fancy” each month. This month our theme is “Tags Tags Tags”! ‘Tis the season for tags and they are not only great for packaging but also as an element on a card.
I used a mish-mash of things that were on my stamp table for this card. Does this card feel familiar to you?? That is because the background of the card was a cast off from this card. I first created this layer using Very Vanilla and then realized that I wanted it in Whisper White. So this version has been sitting on my “to use” pile for months. Well, I’m trying to move through that pile so I pulled it out again. I also used elements from the awesome kits that I have been getting. The “joy” and the snowflake are from the Watercolor Winter card kit. That kit is the creative gift that keeps on giving! I made a tag from Gold Foil using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and round the edges with my Corner Rounder Punch. I attached the vellum snowflake and the gold thread using a gold Metallic Clothespin. I used the Baker’s Twine left behind from pulling off the gold thread (Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine) to attach to the top of the tag.
I hope that you find inspiration in this card. With almost all my holiday crafting done, I had fun just “playing” to create this. Combining elements, playing with textures…these are great to do. I hope that you will have some time set aside during this holiday season to create just for the fun of it.
I have no posts planned over the next couple of weeks but if I manage to sneak in some crafting time of my own, I’ll be sure to share. I hope that this season of joy finds you surrounded by love! Thank you so much for visiting with me today!
