Merry - Papercraft Star

Wow, this year is just flying buy! Thanksgiving is around the corner and before we know it - Christmas!!

The challenge this week at Papercraft Star is to include a number, so I chose to make a Christmas tag.

For the base of the tag I used a digital bingo card by Kenner Road that I purchased at 2peas. The beautiful snowflake is a cut from my Silhouette SD out of a background from the CMS text writing backgrounds 141 digi sheet by The House Across The Bay. I then cut several more snowflakes out of white cardstock and glued them all together to make a thicker snowflake. 

I popped the snowflake off the tag to add some dimension. I then stamped on a little coffee stained tag that I purchased from Kraft Outlet and added a key by K&Company. I used Stampin' Up! ribbon at the top tied with string from a coffee stained tag to add more color and interest.

I punched the Santa out of the Christmas Squares digi sheet 055 (by THATB) using a 1" circle punch and then popped him up in the center of the snowflake. I added glossy accents and glitter glass to give a snow & ice look to the snowflake. The tag is inked around the edges with silver Encore ink, heat & stick powder and glitter for a winter feel. I of course inked the edges of everything with tea dye and/or walnut stain - I can't help myself!

I hope that you enjoyed my project today and will join us for Challenge 70 at Papercraft Star! You have until 6:00am EST on Monday November 14th to upload your projects for your chance to win prizes from The House Across The Bay!

LOL I like Jennifer's word "swooning". :-) I totally agree. That snowflake looks so awesome. I have been wracking my brain trying to think of a challenge for you but I can't think of a single thing I haven't already seen you tackle perfectly. :-) This tag is really great Regan!

Regan I so love this tag! The glitter glass looks great and the Santa image is a perfect touch to the snowflake!

Beautiful tag, Regan. What a clever way to use the bingo card, and you Santa is a nice touch. Have a great Saturday.
