Yet Another Christmas Card

we have a lovely challenge for you,

make a Christmas card,


As you can see I've used my hand designed  tag template again, so  loving these lol,
I have used a lovely Fizzy Moon stamp which I won as candy from the lovely Kate, thank you hun, and I have coloured it onto water colour paper and used Distress inks, "what no copics" !!! lol

I've made this as you can see for Tegan our lovely granddaughter who will be much too young to know what it is, but her mum spied it the other day and  loved it and said she will keep it in a keep sake box for her, I thought aw how lovely,


I have used seven different die cuts on here lol,
Tim Holtz alterations ~ snow flurries 
Tim Holtz ~ Weathered clock 
Doo Hickeys ~ Doily flowers
Doo Hickeys ~ Flag 
Doo Hickeys ~ Fence
Marianne die ~ flower doily
Large snowflake die, which may be discontinued?



Fizzy's fur trim is made with Liquid Applique and he has been cut out and adhered to the card using pin flair glue to give him a little height,
the Marianne die in the centre has been distressed with white acrylic paint and snowflake stamps from Magnolia have been stamped on top, in the centre of some of these I have added a little bling,
the small jingle bells I have had for years in my stash lol,
letters are a small Hero arts stamps set,

Wow Liz, this tag is so beautiful. Aww and so sweet as well. I just love everything about it. You really do make amazing projects. I love how everything just seems to come together so beautifully from the papers or cardstock you use to the wee images or embellishments. I'd love to be able to craft like this. Lee x
