12 Tags of Christmas - #4

I have made another card for week 4 of the 12 Tags of Christmas challenge sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Here is Linda's tag and I took my inspiration from the silhouettes.

I started with some card stock from my stash for the blank.  Next I added a panel of music paper from a Christmas pad from Farm House Paper Company that I distressed and inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink..  You might have to look closely but it is there in the background.

The next panel is embossed with a Snowflakes embossing folder (Cuttlebug) and inked with Walnut Stain.

Next I convinced my husband to cut the carolers and lamp post for me.  I sure hope he appreciates that I am helping him out with these crafty requests.  Every time I ask for something new he has to create the files that talk to the laser cutter and since he is teaching himself the graphics programs, I figure I am assisting him on this path to learning so he owes me - LOL.  He's a good guy!!!!

I added some acetate that was in my stash to the back of the lamp.  It had been inked with some Alcohol Inks and left over from my Halloween project.

Next I die cut a number of holiday greens from scraps of card stock, inked them with some Forest Moss Distress Ink and cut them apart before I added them to make a frame.

Finally I made a computer generated sentiment that I inked with Walnut Stain DI and added it with a loopy burlap string bow.

The following products used to create this card came from The Funkie Junkie Boutique:


  1. Very nice variation of Linda's tag!


  2. Your snowflake background positively glows with warmth and the carolers look beautiful against it. Your greenery frame is inspired. So glad to have you back playing for week #4!



I love to hear what you think about my work, so please leave me a comment.
