Soooo, it's Monday, which means that it is time for another challenge over at Created With Love, and this week our theme is easy - Christmas.
This week we are sponsored by Bugaboo, and here is my DT card:
Which as you can see is not actually a card, but in fact a Christmas tag, which shall be adorning one of my Christmas presents, which are now all bought (although I have one or two I need to finish off making).
I didn't plan on making a tag at first, but once I had printed off my image (to the usual size I would if making a card), I realised that it would make a much better tag than a card.
I coloured the image with promarkers and cut it to a tag shape. I then cut a slightly larger piece of kraft card as the base.
Before attaching the image to the base I added a scrap of craft gauze, then glued the image over the top. I then punch a hole in the top of the tag.
I threaded some red ribbon through the hole, and I was going to thread the ribbon through a jingle bell, but the ribbon was too thick, so in the end the jingle bell just got glued into the hole. I thought adding a jingle bell would match the image.
I then added two red flowers with holly leaves from my stash. For the centre of the holly leaves I used some green star gems.
Finally, to finish my tag, I dotted burgundy stickles all around the edge.
I'm not sure whose present this will be going on yet, but I will be trying to make my wrapping to match in one way or another.
