Headstart on Christmas!!

The Ways to Use it Challenge on Splitcoast yesterday was to make a holiday card or project. I needed to get started on my Christmas projects for my church craft sale in Nov...... I usually make around 10 sets of Christmas cards, candy boxes, and lots of tags. Most of the cards need to be flat for mailing but I just couldn't help myself with the layered snowflake!!! All the stamps were from Rubbernecker.
The snowflake was embossed with red ep and layered with the ribbon and button. The sentiment was stamped with Old Olive and the dp is from Stampin Up.

The tag, which was also for Holly's TLC challenge on Splitcoast, used the Christmas Tree image from RN's Snowflakes and Stardust set and the top was cut with Nestabilities Labels 11.

A Cuttlebug embossing folder was used on the white layer and red Liquid Pearls was used for a little flat glam. One red rhinestone was placed center below the sentiment. the sertiment was stamped with Poppy Parade and embossed with clear ep.....pretty simple but perfect for mailing!!
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: White, Vanilla, Old Olive, Real Red, SU dp
Ink: Poppy Parade, Real Red, Old Olive, Versamark
Accessories: Red ep, Clear ep, Fiber, Cuttlebut Folder, Liquid Pearls, Nestabilities, Ribbon, Button, Floss
These are also for a few other challenges:
2. I Did It Creations Challenge - keep it simple
3. Crafty Pad Challenge - embossing (heat or dry) I used both
4. AI Factory - anything goes
5. Stamp Insanity - embossing
6. Ooh La La Creations - use a sentiment as the main image
