Forest of Trees Gift Tag & Card

Friday, December 16, 2011

Hello Blog Friends! This will be a quick post, even though I have both a card and a tag to share with you. I made these for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Opposites Attract Challenge #148, which is to use the same image and make two cards/projects with two totally different looks, styles, themes or colors. I made a Christmas tag and a masculine thank you card.

I used a Pearl Pen on the gift tag for the large gold "pearls," and a snow marker for the snow on the tree. For the trees on the thank you card, I inked my stamp up with several different colored inks, then stamped one tree. I stamped off onto scrap paper before stamping the second tree so it wouldn't be too dark.

Here's a photo of the gift card tied onto a bag, and also the inside of the card.

And, that'll do it for me. Thanks for visiting today. Hope you have a great weekend!
