Happy Holidays...Tag Card

OMGosh...it is so pouring rain, here in Hawaii. I can't tell you how beautiful it is from our home. We live up in the hills and the clouds are sitting low. It's not our typical tropical rain, it's....POURING rain and the chill is in the air. How perfect for the holidays. But...it's only for a few days then the sun will be out again. So, my family and I are enjoying every moment of it. We love the rain (as you can probably tell, by now). I know, I know...most of you live in areas where it's the winter season, you have beautiful snow (until it's brown, mushy, & time to shovel), nice chilly weather (until your fireplace or heater decides not to work), and little running noses (until YOU have to be the one to stay up allllllllllllllllllll night, tending to the colds and fevers). But what better time to CRAFT right!?! For me, this weather puts me in the mood to clean. I love to clean but, I'm so tempted to craft allllllllllllllllllll day, hmmmmmmm...What shall I do!?! I know...I will CLEAN my CRAFT room! That should take me allllllllllllllllllll day (lol). So off I go...but before I do, let me share this next card with you.

This actually began, on a day I was planning on making gift tags. Instead, I switched gears, right in the middle, and decided to turn my tags into cards. Here's the first.

I embossed the background with CB Embossing Folder, added a strip of DS Paper from Three Bugs in a Rug (CaBoodle Kit), embossed the outline of the reindeer image (TAC) using black versa craft and clear embossing powder, and colored it in with SU Markers. The snowflakes were created by cricut's "Accent Essentials" cartridge and covered with Pearly Fine glitter. I think however...I will remove the silver cord. After all, it's no longer a tag (lol).

Below are just a few of the other tags that were converted into cards. Sorry I don't have a closer shot but, the same process was used for each tag.

Details:
Technique: Die Cutting (Cricut cartridge & Sizzix), Embossing, Stamping, Coloring
Images: Rudolph, Stocking, Gingerbread Man, & Bell (TAC)
Paper: Stock Paper (SU), Three Bugs in a Rug DS Paper (Little C's)
Supplies: CB Embossing Folder, Ribbon, Versa Craft, Embossing Powder, Glitter
Ink: SU Markers

Thank you for visiting today. Have a very blessed day, Aloha!
