My Sheri Crafts #100

It's that busy time at the end of the year... Christmas season!  This week's theme over at My Sheri Crafts is to decorate any packages, bags, or tags for Christmas

I decided to make gift card holders / tags that I can hang up on the tree.  I'm using non-traditional Christmas colors for my tags because I wanted to use up these coordinating papers from JoAnn's Peppermint Forest paper stack that I got last year

Each tag was made using a Spellbinder die big enough to cover the gift card holder in the back.  The gift card holder is from the Cricut cartridge: Bags, Tags, Boxes, & More.  I left it quite simple in the back and the white envelop is where I plan to write a little message to the recipient

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts

Supplies used:
Papers - Jo-Ann Peppermint Forest stack
Sentiment on third tag is a stamp and colored with glitter gel pen
Close to My Heart - liquid glass on the dots on third tag
Design Studio
Darice - embossing folder
Fiskars - border punch on the first tag
Sizzix - flourish
Spellbinder - tag frames and large flower
Cricut cartridge: Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More

Card Sketch Challenge: 12-5 (extra credit)

For my niece, Emily's 2nd birthday... I made a tag to hold her gift card.  Her parents gave her the iPad so we gave her an iTunes gift card

I didn't feel comfortable just handing her a "gift card" so I tied it up to a Webkinz puppy

Supplies used:
Design Studio
Spellbinder - tag
Fiskars - scalloped circle 
Cricut Gel Pens
Cricut cartridge: Celebrations - "2"
Cricut cartridge: Simply Sweet - stitched circle and "Emily"
Cricut cartridge: Sweet Treats - "happy birthday"

The inside sentiment says "if friends fill our lives"

Sentiment is a stamp
Cricut cartridge: Sweet Treats

Card Sketch Challenge: 11-21 (sketch 2)

I made two versions of sketch 2 for this challenge.  They were originally going to be almost identical but my Cricut was acting up and decided to fail on cutting the snowflakes neatly.  I salvaged one and on the other card, I used Spellbinders instead

On this salvaged snowflake cut, I covered it with glitter to hide all the jagged areas and make it a neater looking cut

Supplies used:
Card size - 4.25" x 5.5"
Papers - JoAnn's
Design Studio
Close to My Heart - stamp sentiment
Cuttlebug - embossing
Spellbinder - flower and flourish
Cricut cartridge: Home Accents
