Today I tried a new style of card, for me, anyways. It's a tag easel card. I've been watching lots of Tim Holtz videos to try and learn how to take some plain cardstock and make it, well, not so plain. As you will see, this is quite a beginners card! Hopefully, one can only go up from here, LOL.
I used this lovely image from Tammy at A Day For Daisies. I colored the image digitally and then added some Crystal Effects on the candy cane. My first layer was Tea Dye distress ink, then I stamped some swirls and embossed, and then some more distress ink. I then stamped some snowflakes with gold Creative Inspirations Paint. That didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, need more practice! The last touch was to add some gold embossing around the edge. After that it was just a matter of adding the embellishments.
There's some swirl bling and my crocheted flower.
I'm sure we have all had a song pop into our head and not be able to get rid of it. As I was making this card, I started singing 'It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas'. And now it's stuck! I'm going to go turn on some other music. I'm not ready for Christmas!
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
