Lavender Christmas

Hi!  It's time for another Merry Monday challenge and this week, Kristie wants to see a tag on our Christmas cards.


I went for a very simple, tried and true layout for my card as I was running out of time!


I stamped and colored the wee snowman from Polar Pals and cut him out with the matching die. I then die-cut the sentiment from some Lavender cardstock.  The tag die is from Reverse Confetti and I cut two of those - stacking one behind the other.

Down the left hand side, I adhered a panel of Lavender stamped with the diagonal lines stamp from Basic Borders and then a thin strip of Blue Violet cardstock.

The sentiment and the snowman were both colored with Wink of Stella to give a nice shimmer to them.


Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the inspiration from the rest of the design team.

Products used:

Stamps:  Polar Pals, Basic Borders (Mama Elephant)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Lavender (SSS)
Cardstock:  White, Lavender, Blue Violet (SSS)
Accessories:  Merry Christmas die (SSS), Polar Pals die (Mama Elephant), Copics, Wink of Stella, Tag Me die (Reverse Confetti)

Cheers
Karren

I wish all my "running out of time" cards were so fantastic! I love this color combo too - lavender and blue are a perfect combo for a snowman theme! And I just remembered that as the temperature here keeps heating up the temperature where you are is going down! I hope there are no real snowmen in your future!
