Day 5 Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas 2021 Challenge

this is the tag I created for day 5 of Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas 2021 Challenge: I’ll Be Home for Christmas with Elena Roussakis + Becky Roberts

I made a light-hearted tag for this sad song – Rudolph is driving teddy home for the holidays; I used the design from my cards and reduced the size of the road and houses to fit onto the tag.

the lawn fawn car critters and the car critters christmas add-on were watercoloured with twinkling H2Os, fussy cut and popped on foam tape. I added a red pearl to Rudolph’s nose. I also used twinkling H2Os to paint the road, free hand cut from Arches cold press watercolour paper, and the Impression Obsession trees; the sky was sponged with distress inks.

Pair of Penguins For Rudolph Days

it’s time for the monthly rudolph days challenge at maureen’s (scrappymo) blog, where we encourage you to create christmas projects.

i used two different colour schemes to create two similar cards but made a feminine and masculine version.

i painted the elizabeth craft designs penguins with twinkling H2Os, used the coordinating die, and finished the card with these lawn fawn products: merry die, mini snowflakes die and christmas sentiment stamped in white.

the deadline to enter your christmas project is the end of the month, plus you’d be entered in a draw for a fabulous prize so why not play along?

the theme for the next two weeks, for challenge #82, is to create a project using an embossing folder so i embossed this very shiny blue Elizabeth Craft Designs Shimmer Sheetz and coloured with permanent markers. to finish off, i added a sentiment and matted it with the shimmer sheetz and some purple mirri. the biggest challenge was taking a good photo without my or my camera’s reflection.
