Christmas Card with Tag

I've got a quick and easy card to show you today.
I was inspired by the theme over at Winter Wonderland - Scandinavian Christmas - and I also wanted to try something new to me - I made a tag to put on the card front! I got to use my Crop-A-Dile for the first time and use an eyelet from my huge stash.Yay!
The background with snowflakes I made myself with a Fiskars stamp and white embossing powder. The tag is made with a DP from Wild Rose Studio and letter stickers. The teddy bear is a wooden element. I also used white string.

I'd like to try my luck in these challenges with this card:
1) Winter Wonderland - – Scandinavian Style
2) My Time to Craft - Teddy Bears Picnic
3) Operation Write Home - Create your own background
4) Darnell's NBUS challenge #2

This is so adorable, Pia! I am in love with that embossed snowflake background you MADE YOURSELF!! Your tag is precious and good for you for using an eyelet! Geeze, I must have a thousand of those things and a Cropadile and never use them any more. Now I'm inspired! Your bow is divine! Thank you so much for playing in my second NBUS Challenge!!

sandie said...

I have never done this before either! And this doesn't look quick to me to add all these snowflakes and emboss them!! The pattern is so Scandinavian and that little whole twine perfect to match this x

scrappymo! said...

Thi is so pretty for a child. Love the background paper you created. It is perfect with that Wild Rose paper you used on the tag. I have that paper too!

I used to make tag cards and have not for a long time. Perhaps you will inspire me to create on as I think I have tags made up already!
