12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Day 8

my RA symptoms are a bit exacerbated today, so i only got one tag made for day 8 of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge and this one was really challenging.

i was inspired by day 8 designer jill foster and her cute penny black image, colour palette and all the dimension.

i watercoloured this adorable snowman (snow woman?) with twinkling H2Os in pink, yellow, orange, purple, blue, grey and some burgundy for the heirloom carrot nose. i embossed the kraft paper with a cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and lightly applied white ink; the image was die cut with a my favorite things stitched circle die and popped on foam tape. pink and clear stickles were added and i coloured a gold peel off sticker sentiment with permanent markers to make it orange. to finish it off, i added two ribbons. this is going to my daughter because she loves silly snowmen too.

thanks for popping by.

A Green Christmas

tiny punched green christmas tree in bottom right corner with green ribbon and bow at top left of card
this is part of a set of cards i made for my daughter; she loves green. i tied the bow on the card, which took longer than the entire card because i have three fused fingers on my left hand.  i should’ve known better and next time i’ll just use my bow-easy. (my emphasis).  the card is 4.25″ square and the tiny ornaments are peel offs.  i’m submitting this to the less is more challenge to use a ribbon or button. thanks for popping by.
