12 Tags of Christmas-Funkie Junkie Style-Week #6

Welcome back! I am skipping around with Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas-Funkie Junkie style, and this time I was inspired by Linda's rustic tag--Week 6. I was inspired by her kraft and white color scheme, Holiday Knit stenciling, glittery trees, and her use of those sweet deer and gingham ribbon on her tag.



Here is Linda's beautiful tag. Please be sure to stop by her blog to see the details and how she made this wintry festive tag.


For my card, I chose a kraft card blank and laid down texture paste  through the Holiday Knit stencil as Linda did, but I added embossing powder and heated once the paste had dried. I added the  Rock Candy Distress Glitter on my white Tree Line die cuts and left one cut from kraft card unadorned. My sweet little Tim Holtz deer are still packed up in the Funkie Junkie package I received so quickly today, but I chose to use die cuts (Impression Obsession) so my card would be easier to mail. I'll save the sweet deer for another project, or I may just stare at them for a year. I didn't have the Holiday Greens die that Linda used, but I substituted some holly from the new Tim Holtz Mixed Media Christmas Thinlits die set and cut some Festive Greenery (Decorative Strip die)  to tuck under my Labels Thinlits embossed with a sentiment from Flonz Craft. The berries were colored with Festive Berries Distress marker and a water pen. Deer, sentiment label, greenery sprig, and card all were edged in Frayed Burlap.

  11. Wow, this is beautiful!! I absolutely love the kraft and white combo, especially for the holidays! Your layers upon layers of trees creates such a wonderful and dimensional background for your wee deer family! That strip of red ribbon adds a little tradition into the mix that I just adore, and what Christmas card is complete until you've added some glitter!! LOVE!!!!!

  25. Love the beautiful scene you have created on your card, Sara Emily. All that kraft and white are looking gorgeous. I'm loving the deer herd you made with your Impression Obsession die. Wish I had grabbed one for myself before we sold out! Your red gingham ribbon is the perfect finisher for this card. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Hugs,
    Linda
