Have A Cheesy Holiday

we’re more than half way through the year and it’s July 25 so time for me to share my Design Team creation for another Rudolph’s Days Challenge, hosted by Maureen.

Christmas tag non traditional colours mouse on cheese

I used Waffle Flower Holiday Cheese images, painted with twinkling H2Os on Arches hot press watercolour paper and fussy cut – next time I’ll just buy the die. I accidentally cut off the cheeseboard sign so I substituted a thin strip of black cardstock for the sign post and cut the sign twice; once from black cardstock embossed in white and once from woodgrain paper. I used foam tape to attach to the background, made by a brayer and yellow distress inks before embossing: mustard seed and wild honey. of course I added stickles to the hats.

for the tag backs, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Waffle Flower Classic Holiday Sentiments set and used mustard seed distress ink and the smallest solid star stamp from the same set to create the star border on the front and back. to finish off, I used the mustard seed DI to colour the seam binding.

even though it’s non traditional colours, I like that it’s still festive. just a reminder that you only need to submit one holiday creation to play along, leave a comment on Maureen’s blog and you’ll be eligible for a chance to win a generous prize. you’ll also be a step closer to being ready to mail out those holidays cards in 4 months.

I’m also playing along with the Waffle Flower Christmas In July Challenge: week 1 inspiration was unconventional colours and week 3 was tags.

thanks for popping by.
