Challenges · Making Cards

Season’s Greetings

Welcome to my Wednesday post, only on Tuesday lol. Sorry, those pesky Challenge deadlines!

Speaking of challenges, I’m sharing my card for this week’s Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge.

This week is Let’s Get Ready for Christmas, which we all know I’ve already done… The product’s featured are Clearly Besotted. I don’t have a lot of Clearly Besotted products, and nothing Christmas themed. Sadly, I did have an idea using the sleeping baby dragon from Hot Stuff, but I didn’t have the large tree image to tuck him under. Oh well, I’ll be able to execute it when the Hero Arts October kit arrives.

So, I skipped the Clearly Besotted and went with something new to me, the Globe and Ornament Shaker tag from Honey Bee Stamps. This item came out last year, and I’ve had my eye on it ever since.

I decided to make a tag/ornament using the Honey Bee set. I die cut the ornament backer and 6 of the frames from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Then I layered the background and frames with liquid adhesive and set them aside to dry.

I also cut the backer piece from Acetate, and the frame from Lawn Fawn’s Pixie Dust cardstock. The ornament topper is cut from Silver Foil cardstock. I cut two, because I made the tag/ornament so that it could be removed from the card and used.

Once the frame was dry, I added Lucy’s Cards Diamonds in Tiffany Blue and Ice Cubes. Then I added the acetate, frame and topper. When the piece was dry, I stamped To: and From: on the back in a light blue color and added the ribbon (I do save and use all those ribbons from the Hero Arts Kits)..

This background is from that large Brusho piece I made in my video last week. I cut it down to use as card panels. The sentiment is from Concord and 9th’s Very Merry Sentiments, and I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed with Hero Arts Silver embossing powder. I added the tag/ornament with removable adhesive, and the panel to a Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card base. I wish I had take pictures of the back of the tag before I added it… I’m sure I’ll make another one though, this was so easy!

Thanks for stopping by!
