Snowman Tag

Another Christmas card!  The week-long Christmas in July event at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Challenge Blog has inspired me to make a new Christmas card every day this week!   I wish I had some Bugaboo Christmas images, but unfortunately I don't, so I'm using what I have.  I stamped the snowman image in black on a punched tag, coloured with watercolour markers, outlined tag in silver, and attached ribbon with green staple.  I embossed the snowflake swirl stamp in white on the top part of the lime-green panel, stamped the sentiment in black on the bottom, added a strip of ribbon, layered to green card, and accented with red gems.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Snowman (Sunshine Design), snowflake swirl (Inkadinkado), sentiment (Anita's)
  • Ink:  StazOn Jet Black, VersaMark Watermark
  • Embossing Powder:  The Artful Stamper - White
  • Watercolour Markers:  Tombow
  • Watercolour Paper:  Canson
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Tag Punch:  Marvy Uchida
  • Silver Marker: Pilot
  • Ribbon, Gems, Staple:  Dollarama
