HLS November Christmas Card Challenge

Hello! Ready for a new Christmas Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers?

Here is our word you need to use for this months challenge -

You can make a Christmas tag or incorporate a tag onto your card :)

We have a wonderful guest designer with us for this challenge - Bonnie from Stamping with Klass. Welcome!

I decided to create a tag -

I die cut my tag from a piece of DSP cardboard backing. This makes the tag nice and strong. I then die cut a piece of kraft paper and glued it to the tag. 

I masked off the lower portion with a piece of painters tape and used true snow and a stencil to create my background in the upper portion.

I embossed the script stamp from the HLS Thinking of You set onto some gold paper and die cut out some trees. I found some christmas paper in my stash, glued it to the bottom portion then popped up my trees with foam squares. Lastly, I embossed Peace from the HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments set.

My last part was tying up some Gold Flecked Bakers Twine - finished!

Our lucky winner for this challenge will win the Butterfly Birthday set from Happy Little Stampers -

I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges -

Thanks so much for looking.
