Gel-a-Tins - December DT, Pt II

Below post went live on the Gel-a-tins blog earlier

Today I would like to showcase another Christmas card with you, which was created within the matter of about 10 minutes. I can sometimes spent hours on getting just one card finished but the gorgeous new stamp set HAPPY HOLIDAYS makes creating cards a doddle!
I started stamping the tag with the "Merry Christmas" sentiment first and then added the little "Swirl" to the corners of the tag. Previously I stamped the "Holly" twice to a sheet of white bleedproof paper, coloured it in and hand cut the image, adhering it to the tag with the aid of some foam dots.
To add a little more interest to the "Swirl", I adhered a red flat backed pearl to the lower part to compliment the berries from the "Holly" image.

Finally I added the tag to my cardbase with a double helping of adhesive foam pads, to raise it off the red background and allow me to tuck some punchinella behind the tag.

Supplies used:
Cardstock - Mad About Cards
Papers - Donna Salazar Designs
Tag- WH Smith
Inks - Stampin' Up
Other - Bakers Twine, Punchinella, Button

  3. This is really adorable, Kim! Love the distressed card edges and love that kraft tag. Your stamping is beautiful. The script on the sentiment and the flourishes in the corners are all so pretty, and I love the addition of the popped holly leaves. :)
