Don’t Open Until DECEMBER 25 – Tag



It is that time of year and I have been busy making  some Christmas cards.  This gift card is  one of them.  I just love white on white any time but especially at Christmas.

The top tag uses a texture paste background onto which I added Memory Box РQuinn Flourish die and a Kaisercraft embossed tag.  White Wink of Stella added some extra shine to the die cut and paste snow dots. So shiny IRL.

I had lots of fun playing with my Brusho colours and came up with a very colourful piece which I have used as a background for this card.¬† I gold heat embossed Penny Black ‘Soft Whisper’ .¬† I feel its abstract leaf patterns really play well against the background.¬†It is finished with a ¬†butterfly from Mamma Elephant and¬†a gold¬†die cut sentiment mounted on a vellum strip.
