Ducky Christmas and another 3-D Gift Tag

Hello, friends.  I have two projects to share with you today.  Please scroll down for the 3-D Gift Tag.  First up is my Ducky Christmas card.  I have a young friend who loves ducks, so as soon as I saw this month's image for the progressive challenge at DeeDee's Digis, I knew exactly who this card would be for.  The image is called Daniel's Tree and it comes with several sentiments, including the one I used.  The best part about DeeDee's progressive challenges is that when you play along each month, you get the next month's image set for free - Yay!  

I went with the pre-coloured digi this month and decided to fussy-cut and decoupage his ear-muffs, tree, beak, and wing, and lifted them with foam tape.  Daniel is so cute - I know my young friend will love this card.  For the background, I used a digi of snow and sky that I got as a freebie from Spyder's Corner (thank you, Lyn), and I added Icicle Stickles along the snow.  I included a banner die-cut with punched trees that I stamped with letters to spell "joy."  Lastly I added a little bling with a row of gems along the bottom.

Now for my 3-D gift tag.  I decided to take another stab at this.  It took a lot of fussy-cutting, and I don't think it looks that great, but I decided to enter it in the "12 Days of Christmas" challenge at Mark's Finest Papers.  I stamped the ornament a few times on red and green cardstock, fussy-cut, glued together, and added Stickles.  If you'd like to make your own 3-D gift tag, you can find a tutorial here - these can look very pretty, but I just don't think I have the hang of it yet.   

I would like to enter the following challenge:

Thank you for looking at my card and tag - I enjoy your comments.  Wishing you a wonderful day of crafting.

Oh my word! That duck is so sweet! Great coloring and layering! And I really like how you did the snow.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the nice comments! :) And I love the pic of you and your kitty. Funny: your cat looks almost identical to my cat. Sometime soon I plan on making a page on my blog to show my furry family and you will see what I mean. Obviously we have great taste in furry family members!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh what a sweet, sweet card you made with "Daniel!" I love how you combined it with the wintery background digi to create such a darling scene. The "joy" banner is the perfect accent. Thank you so much for playing along with our challenge again this month, and for helping to spread the word. New digi coming your way in a few weeks! ;-)

P.S. Forgot to tell you how gorgeous your tag is! Love that it is 3D. You always have such fun ideas!

Ingrid Mason said...

Awww Kitty, your duck card is adorable. 'Daniel' t pops from the gorgeous snow scene you have created and the JOY bannner is a lovely touch. I do have to smile at the lovely sentiment - just perfect for your young duck loving friend. Oh, can you just imagine her/his face when receiving this especially made card - I'm seeing pure joy.
The 3D Christmas ornament on your tag is gorgeous. It looks as though it was a very intricate piece of crafting but wow - worth all your work. Hope it's going on a very special gift as it's so special in itself.
Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
