Frosted Flurry

Hello, hope you are enjoying this great Saturday. My DH and I tried to go hiking but, the ground here in Missouri is melting. So, there is mud everywhere. I have a gift tag to share with you today. I used the Cricut to cut out the ornament shape from dark blue cardstock. Next came the white snowflakes cut from the Festive Flurry Framelits. I used a Frosted Finishes embellishment for the center and added silver cording. This would be great embellishment for  a gift or card.

Challenges I participated in: *Kraftyhands - AG (Sat), *Time 4 Scrap - #30 Blue, white & silver (Sat), *The Outlawz - AG (01/03).

Winter Wonderland

This card has alot going on but it didn't take long to create. I first stamped the winter scene on the  light gold paper. I used colored pencils on the trees, water and sky. Next, I added fake snow on the trees and landscape. The last touch I used clear glittle stickers for the trees and sky. Cut the large tree from the Cricut machine. Added snow and blue stickers. I hope the photos shows all the layers and shine.

Poinsettia Tag

Here is a cute Poinsettia gift tag. This idea was taken from the "flower" cards,  where you lift the flowers  to expose the message. This is just a smaller one turned into a gift card. The poinsettia and leaves are from a punch with a brad for the centers. What do you think?

O' Christmas Tree

I think gift tags are tiny works of art. This tag was created using punches and the Cricut machine. The punches were used for the star, circle and scallop circle. The Cricut machine cut out the tag shape and tree. The tag was stamped with a swirl stamp and then embossed with gold embossing powder. The finishing touches include a felt snowfake, a pearl, stickles and ribbon.

Warm Winter Mittens

As you know, it's always hectic making so many Christmas cards. So here's another easy Christmas tag. I love the Ric Rac holding the two mittens together. One mitten has the "To" and the other one has the "From."  Now get out your dies or circut and get busy making a few gift tags.
