Hello, Creative Embellishments fans!
Sandi here with you today!
Today I’m sharing another Christmas Card and Tag set. Normally I don’t like to rush the seasons but the Christmas Card making has to start early or it will never get done.I’ve used another shaker from Creative Embellishments because it is NEW and such a fave already! I did go with an “out of my comfort zone” color scheme of blues and whites. I thought that would look nice and frosty!
After layering an trio of blue patterned papers, I did some random stamping with the Distressed Moroccan Stamp and brown Stazon ink. This will add a little dimension to your projects. That particular stamp is a big fave for me on cards because it is a nice subtle pattern.
Next I added my Joy Shaker which was painted stark white.
Before closing the shaker, I poured in some sequins from Spieglemomscraps.
Once the shaker was complete, I adhered it to the card and added a snowflake from the Large Snowflake Set. For a snowy look, I grabbed some Aleene’s Glitter Snow and brushed it all over the card and shaker.
Additional embellishments were white eyelash ribbon, a flower and white butterfly.
Here’s a little close-up:
When the card was done, I moved on to the tag which was SO much fun to create!
I am absolutely nuts over the Jumping Deer set. They always make the most incredible element on any type of project. They are designed in such a way that they provide all the moment you need to create something sophisticated and charming.
My deer was just randomly dabbed with white paint.
The Oval Scalloped Frames behind him is more solidly painted.
I’ve tucked in a couple more of the Large Snowflake Set. These snowflakes are such a great way to add a wintry element to any project and just add that extra “something” we often want.
I’ve stocked up on them!!
Of course I wanted the same snowy look as on the card, so I added the Aleene’s Glitter Snow rather heavily to the frame and other portions of the tag.
I finished up with more ribbon and a few flowers and sequins.
Here’s a close up for you:
These cards and tags will be so handy when the holidays actually get here!
