Tag & Card

Miserably cold & wet yesterday, although a dusting of snow was pretty to start the day.  Fritz didn't even get out of his bed when I picked up his leash--think he's wishing he was back in Phoenix--haha!  I'm still working on getting Christmas cards mailed & think I finally have a new system for next year to avoid this stress--we'll see if it works.  
Anyway, I did take a break to craft as I didn't want to totally miss Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist. The inspiration is incredible so far, but the glitter stripes on Melania's Day 7 tags just spoke to me.  I used her design, but changed to silver glitter paper & hopefully it's OK to have one extra stripe.  My tag base is MFT Fishtail Flags, the sentiment is Hero Arts, the blossoms & leaves are EH Bold Blossoms which are colored with Zigs.  Finished off with PPP Sparkling Clear sequins & did you notice the black eyelet?!  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies.  

As I said, I'm still mailing Christmas cards so decided to turn my tag into a card.  I intended to deboss the card front, but my brain shut off & the tag is stuck down.  
Think the tag looks better than the card, but hopefully my friend will enjoy it anyway.  I'm entering SSS National Christmas Card Day. I'm slowly catching up on leaving blog comments.  Thank you all for visiting!

  11. Molly loves the snow and I have to drag her in. She rolls in it but won't go outside if it's raining! Go figure. I love those stripes on the tag and the flowers. I like the card embossed and I'm sure your friend will too.

  12. Fabulous card and tag Greta. Are ya going to let us in on your trick to avoid the craziness next year? I am going to try to make 5 cards a month for the major fall holidays starting in January. We'll see if I can hold on to that plan.

  13. We have some pretty sunshine, but it's a bit chilly today. Love the way you've used this nifty die rose set all colorful and bright over the silver wide stripes on your tag. And it looks just great over the white embossing swirls added to your card too! TFS & hugs
