This week's Twisted Tuesday challenge needs be a tag or have a tag on it and the twist is to show something that makes you smile. It can be a favorite stamp, embellishments, something crafty you received as a gift, etc. Be sure to post what it is that makes you smile.
What makes me smile...?? Well, I decided to use one of my very favorite stamp sets, Lovely As a Tree and I just love a fresh coat of snow and how pretty it makes everything look so I decided that my card needed to have lots of snow. Now if we'd only get some snow here for Christmas!
I stamped the tree image onto my background and then again onto my tag. I masked off the snowy areas so that they would remain white and I sponged my background using night of navy ink and I sponged heavier around the edges and lighter towards the center.
I made the tag by cutting a strip of card stock and inserting the top portion through my large tag punch and simply punched to top design. My night of navy layer was cut 1/8" larger and since I don't have a tag punch that's 1/8" larger I simply trimmed the top design by hand. Then I punched a hole at the top of my tag and I threaded some silver cording through and tied it off. You could easily use ribbon here instead.
And what's a snowy card without any glitter, right? So I decided to add lots of glitter! I simply swiped my 2 way glue pen all over the snow and sprinkled dazzling diamonds all over....easy peasy!
Well, I'm off to bake some Christmas cookies! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
