Cozy Christmas Tag Card

by Joanne James22. November 2015 10:00

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge over at The Paper Players! This week it is the turn of the lovely Laurie to host and she has a great sketch to get our creative juices flowing this week:


I decided to showcase some of the lovely Home For Christmas designer series paper on my card today along with one of the Cozy Christmas stamps on today's card:


I love this winter village scene paper so I paired it with a sentiment and the little house from the 'Cozy Christmas' stamp set. I stamped the scene in Mint Macaron and then cropped out the tree on the left and paper-pieced the house, which I stamped in Real Red. I added dimension with some puffy snow on the roof and trees and a wooden snowflake embellishment. I created my layered tag using the Tags and Labels framelits and to finish added a twirly bow using some retired in-colour ribbon in Mossy Meadow. Having had a busy week of classes and most of my day yesterday taken up with school projects I struggled to get into the groove with this card, but time was against me so in the end I had to stop fiddling with it and finish up!

Joanne, I just LOVE this cozy card!  This is my favorite DSP and the little scene you created is fabulous!  You know I adore that curly bow!  How did you get it to curl like that?  I hope you don't mind if I CAS your card.  It is perfect!  XX

Oh Joanne!  Your card is so "retro" and nostalgic for me!  I just adore it and the way it makes me feel remembering Christmas past!  Thanks for the memories!  Smile  Love how you curled the ribbon.  Awesome touch!  This time of year makes me so nostalgic, so I want to thank you for your encouragement, kindness, and the opportunity to share this journey with you and the rest of the team at The paper Players.  It has been so wonderful!  I am sure going to miss it!  Smile  Happy Holidays!
