It’s Festive at Cute Card Thursday!

Hello friends!  Hoping you’re having a great week so far and a happy Thursday too!

We’re starting a brand new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday today!  Woo hoo!  The challenge for this week is “FESTIVE“!  With the Holiday Season upon us, I think this is a great idea to get more creations done!

We’re sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps this week and I have been feeling festive myself and decided to make a fun tag with one of their images today:

Now isn’t she just the cutest?!  The image is called “Christmas Hair Do” from All Dressed up Stamps.  When I’m feeling particularly festive, I like to wear fun holiday sweaters and such, but I don’t believe I’ve ever had a hair do like this one before.  LOL!

I’ve used my favorite Stitched Traditional Tag dies from My Favorite Things and cut the largest out from Jurassic cardstock from Brutus Monroe.  The two decorative paper strips on each end of the image are from the Sweater Weather paper pad by Brutus Monroe as well.

I took the die cut tag and ran the “cable knit” embossing folder (from Stampin’ Up!) over it and then added my image panel over top that was also cut with the stitched tag die on the sides.  Then I glued the strips on each end and stamped the “be jolly” sentiment in the corner.  I punched a hole at the top of the tag and added the red seam binding ribbon that was tied up with twine along with a snowflake button threaded with linen thread over top.

Here’s a closer look at the image on the tag and my coloring with Copic markers.  I was trying to match up the colors on her outfit with the papers that I was using as I liked the sweater knit print and thought it would be fun to use with this image.

I’ve added some dots with a white gel pen on her cheeks, eyes and around the snowflake in her hair.  I covered the berries in her hair with glossy accents and took a shimmer glitter pen over the round ornaments hanging from her antler head band.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my festive tag today and that you’ll come join us this week over at Cute Card Thursday too!

Thanks so much for stopping in today friends!

  1. Festive is an understatement! HOW completely cute, and so beautifully done! Those highlights in her hair have endeared her to my heart. What I really marvel at is how you have tied the tee-tiny bow around the ribbon, and included the tee tiny snowflake! Dontcha just love that tee-tiny bird in her antlers? How did you ever manage to make your hands work inside the constraints of such small lines? I admire that tremendously! Beautiful tag, Vicki! hugs, de

  3. Amazing colouring and what a cute tag. The image is so adorable and the green texture from the dry embossing sets off your card wonderfully x. Fun idea with how you attached the ribbon too x.

  5. One of my favourite projects for Christmas is to make gift tags and yours is terrific and I would save it forever if it was on one of my gifts. Great colouring and design too.
