Cheerful Tags holiday card

Here is one of my Holiday Cards for the 2014 Season. I love these colors so soft and serene and then a pop of red to remind you it's Christmas.

Merry Merry

I love this set Cheerful Tags, its small and simple. I layered some strips of All is Calm designer washi tape over my cascade of snowflakes. The snowflakes are stamped in smoky slate and soft sky classic ink. I added bling with the Frosted sequins and basic rhinestones that I colored with my Coastal Cabana blendabilities markers. You could just as easily use a sharpie to color them, either way the effect is fun. I punched the tag with the new Note Tag punch, stapled a piece of real red 1/4" cotton ribbon and then tied some cherry cobbler bakers twine around the red ribbon. I stamped the snowflake in soft sky ink on the soft sky card stock, gives a watermark effect.

For the layout I used a smoky slate base layered a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of soft sky on top of it. The top layer is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of whisper white, I cut in 1-1/4" on the bottom left and angled it up to the top left corner. Last I tucked a 1-1/2" x 3-1/4" strip of All Is Calm designer paper behind the white.
