My card today began as an for a tag to go with some Christmas baking. Yes, I am actually trying to plan ahead a little bit. However, it quickly morphed into a card. I will try again another time for the tag, but it did make a really cute card.
I am so in LOVE with these little Santas in this So Santa stamp set. They are just precious. Can you see why I thought this would make a great tag for some baked goods? The doily was the reason a tag became a card. I liked it but it was too large for the tag. So I continued playing around and ended up with this odd layout.
The gorgeous DSP is the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. And the doily is one of the Pearlized Doilies, although I used the reverse side which is simply white. The green I chose to marry with the bright Red is the Call Me Clover. I did not envision it as a Christmas Green. Now I do!
To tie the two layers together, the sentiment and the Santa, I used one of the Tinted Faceted Buttons. I have not used buttons in quite some time. They really are a great way to add just a bit to a card. And they are somewhat different as well.
Thank you for visiting today! I greatly appreciate it and hope you will come back tomorrow for the Pals Blog Hop. They are a lot of very talented folks in this group. I have included all of the measurements from today as well as the supplies I used.
