Hi there, friends! Hope you are all doing well, today. :) We woke up to this scene this morning, which resulted in a SNOW DAY for the boys! They have been having so much fun playing outside in the snow, putting up our few Thanksgiving decorations, and I think later on we will bake a little something! :)
While they were occupied outside, I started on this card that had been swirling around in my brain for awhile.... Last weekend, I didn't have my class at church, but the boys did have Sunday School, so, while I had an hour to burn, I went to Barnes & Noble for a soy latte and a look around, I happened upon these **fabulous** vintage look Christmas tags, at 20% off! :)
Here's what the tags look like, so pretty, all glittery and vintagey....
So, I had been thinking on this, even looked around at sketches, but nothing was floating my boat... then today, it's all wintery here, and I spied this new sketch at My Favorite Things! Oh, so perfect for these new tags! :)
I ended up making a 5" square card, but in retrospect would have preferred a 6"instead. I needed a bit more "square footage" than I ended up with! Here's my card:
Everything was going along swimmingly, and I was thinking I'd have room for a sentiment stamp in the lower LH corner of the card. I was also under the mistaken impression at the time, that this was a Mojo sketch, and so I would need a Verve stamp. Uh, wake up, Noelle! MFT! Then I started to panic a wee bit because the only MFT Christmas set I have is the one I used to make this card last year (no longer available). So, what's a girl to do? You want to include some product from the challenge site, but are out of room and don't have the right stamps? Well, here's what I did, I inked up the word "Christmas!"on one of the sentiment stamps & then I stamped it on a teeny tag, I attached it to the vintage tag with a pearl brad, which actually helped hide the hole in the big tag anyway, and I managed to squeeze in a little MFT, anyway! :)
The DPs I used are new (and the tag), but everything else on this card is from last year or older. In fact, that mini tag is really old!
Well, I hope you like my card! Enjoy your day, whether it be snowy like mine, or a bit on the warmer side! :)
Have a stellar day!
