Goodness, I forgot that today was the 26th, and we are on for a blog hop! Yay!
Here's the paper I started with- not sure where it came from, it has been in the wrapping paper box for ages. It's fabulous colors, very heavy, and very antiquey looking!
I took the Papertrey Christmas tree die and just plopped it down and cut a tree-
Whops, that won't work! Angel faces on the tree probably will look funny!
Had to fussy cut the tree, but it looks wonderful! I made a 'Strathmore' kind of card by cutting watercolor paper to an A-2 size, tearing off the right edge, then running a gold Pilot pen down the tear. Rejoice comes from this years Holiday Spirit Sentiments and I finished it off with a tiny star at the top. Lovely!
The tags are a little different; they are made with chocolate wrappers! You can get the chocolates at discount stores (mine came from Marshalls) at Christmas time. The chocolate isn't to rave about, but the vintage wrappers are!!! I used a Hampton Arts red rubber stamp to do the background, then aged the Pure Poppy layer, and put the trimmed wrapper right on top. Added some Making Memories poinsettias, made some snowflakes from brads and punches, and that's a little K&C folded paper doo dad on the lower tag.
Hope you are resting up if you had a busy weekend, and hope you are all safe if you are int he middle of a blizzard. We are waiting for the snow to start; supposed to get 18 inches tonight and another 6 tomorrow. Snow is fun while it falls and we are all snug with lanterns and a wood fire, but the wonder lasts for about 15 minutes when I think about going to work tomorrow, and all of my family who are out and about and need to get home. Sheesh.
