SCCC32 -- Peace & Joy

I really am enjoying the Christmas Card Challenge and was determined to post for this week's challenge.  Time almost got away from me, however, but it's better late than never, right?  This week's challenge is to make either a Christmas gift tag or a Christmas card with a tag on it.  I chose the latter.  I've been using the Silver Foil lately and so my first thought was to make a tag out of it.  My second thought was to use the Northern Flurry embossing folder on the Silver Foil.

The embossed snowflakes on the Silver Foil looked spectacular, especially once I put a rhinestone in each centre.  Because the tag looked so elegant in silver with the embossing, I decided to keep the rest of the card simple.  I therefore used the same embossing folder on Whisper White and mounted that on a base cardstock of Lost Lagoon.  Then I cut the top of the tag with the Scallop Tag Topper punch and rounded the corners using the Envelope Punch board.  I mounted the Silver Foil on a layer of Lost Lagoon cardstock and cut that very closely to the Silver Foil, leaving a very narrow border.

Then I tied a bow around a piece of Lost Lagoon ribbon that I pulled through the top of the tag.  Finally I used Dimensionals to mount the tag onto the card at a slight angle.  For the sentiment I decided to use the new Good Greetings hostess stamp set that will be available in the new Holiday Catalogue.  I stamped that in Lost Lagoon ink and mounted the Whisper White label on a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock, cutting that to leave only a narrow border as well.

I love the simplicity of the card.  I hope you will, too.  For a look at more cards, check out  the Christmas Card Challenge.
