Anyway, that's enough waffling for now! So onto todays card which is for Totally Papercrafts Challenge and this week our theme is "Tag It". You can interpret this anyway you like, either make a tag on it's own for a gift or incorporate it onto your card as I've done.
I've used one of my new Magnolia's from the Christmas range, isn't he the sweetest Santa?! I just luv him and he was such a dream to colour in.
He has been coloured in with Copics. For my backing paper I have used a fabby wrapping paper which is foiled and glittered, hope you can see it in the pics as it really is a lovely texture. I then used versamark ink around the edges and embossing powder to make it look like snow. In the shaker I have added some diamond dust. The tag is cut out using a doohickey die and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been well and truly stickled hehe (if that's the correct word for loads of stickles lol). I will be entering this card into the Magnolia-licious challenge as they are wanting to see shaker cards. Also Just Magnolia's special monthly challenge is anything goes, so I'm entering it there too. Will be entering the following challenges with this card :
A Pocket full of posies - Winter bouquet
A spoonfull of sugar - Relish to embelish
Creative Inspirations - Shake it! Create a shaker card
Sir Stampalot - Christmas traditions
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully my card has inspired you enough to want to make your own and join in with our challenge. Please do hop on over to the TPC challenge blog as there is some gorgeous inspiration by our talented design team. Will be back to show you what I got at the NEC over the weekend. Have a great day all! Lotsa luv xxxx
