I'm playing along with a couple of challenges with this card. The colours come from this week's Colour Throwdown - CTD#345 (so perfect for a Christmas card). And over at Jingle Belles - JB:15:12, the ladies would like us to make a card with a shaker or to feature Santa or both!! As you can see I decided to make Santa the feature of my card, but on tags, not as a shaker. I stamped some snowflakes and stars randomly over the base. I die cut two tags, one red and the other white. On the white tag I stamped a Santa silhouette and simple greeting. The sentiment is actually a very dark green, although it looks black in the photo. I heat embossed both images with clear powder. I covered a scrap of white card with green Washi tape and die cut a little star for the tag. I edged the tag with soft green ink. I created the sentiment banners by adding two strips of Washi tape to the top of white card and then stamped the sentiment. The bottom banner is covered with musical Washi. I attached the tags with dimensional tape. On the inside I cut a mat layer of red design paper and added a simple Christmas greeting on the white panel.
