Sunny Challenge 90/13

October 13, 2013

002This week’s Sunny Challenge has been brought to us by Gwen.  She would like us to use “framelits” on our card, scrap page or 3d item.  Since there are lots of framelits that you can use, it should be easy for you to join our challenge this week.

With Christmas approaching so fast, I decided to make a Christmas Tag using the Apothecary Accents Framelit Dies and also the Holiday Ornament Framelit Dies.

I cut Very Vanilla card using the largest framelit from the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies and made sure to cut it on the fold.  I cut another framelit from Soft Suede.  I also cut another one of these framelits from Very Vanilla card, this time I moved the framelit ever so slightly to make it smaller to attach to the front of the card.  Tanya Bell has an awesome Video which shows you how to do this here. 004 I attached the Soft Suede Framelit to the front of the Very Vanilla framelit cut on the fold.  I embossed the lower two-thirds of the Very Vanilla Framelit which I had reduced in size, using the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and attached it to the Soft Suede Framelit.  I stamped the image from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out using the matching Holiday Ornament Framelit Die.  I attached the ornament to the front of the tag and added a row of Basic Rhinestones.  I stamped “merry christmas” from the Embellished Events stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Soft Suede ink and cut it out using the largest Bitty Banner Framelit Die.  I attached the greeting to Soft Suede card and cut the ends to match the die.  I  used my bone folder to give some shape to the Banner and added two dimensionals on top of each other to the back of the banner in the centre. 006 I added a Glue Dot to each end of the Banner and then attached it to the front of the tag over the ornament.  I stamped “to from” from the Tag It stamp set to the inside of the tag using Soft Suede ink.  I punched a hole through the top of the tag using the smallest hole on the Crop-A-Dile and tied Cherry Cobbler 1/2″ Seam Binding through the hole.

This was a fun tag to make and I am sure to be making more of these for my Christmas presents this year.  For more inspiration pop on over to Sunny Challenges and see what the rest of the design team has created.  Once you have made your card, scrap page or 3d Item, pop back to Sunny Challenges and add it to Mr. Linky.  As always we look forward to see your creations.

Bye for now,

    What a cute tag Kris? I am loving the simplicity of it, with just a touch of bling to finish it off!
