SUOC105 Cheerful Tags

It’s time for a new challenge over on SUO Challenges!  This time we are featuring Embellishments (Page 208-209 in the Catalog and those in the Holiday Catalog) on our cards!  I knew right away I wanted to make a button snowman.  I also just had gotten my Little Letter Framelit Dies in my last order and so I spelled out SNOW.  Perfect timing!

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Soft Sky Cardstock, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Lost Lagoon, I rounded the top with the Corner Rounder Punch.
  • Along the bottom, I added a 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 layer of the snowflake pattern in All Is Calm Designer Paper.  On top of that I added a 1 x 5 1/4 piece of the Stripe pattern in the same package.
  • I wrapped the length of Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon around to the back and adhered in place to hide the seam at the top.
  • To hide the bottom seam, I cut a 1/8 x 5 1/4 piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and adhered it.
  • The Little Letters Framelits cut the SNOW letters from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and I lined up along the top of the DSP.
  • I stamped the tag image in Cheerful Tags with Soft Sky Ink on Whisper White and punched with the Note Tag Punch.
  • I punched a narrow strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the bottom of the Note Tag Punch and curved the top of the snowbank.
  • I used two white buttons from the Neutral Pack.  The larger one placed on the bottom with Mini Glue Dots, the top one I punched a 1/4″ Basic Black circle and adhered it behind the holes for the “eyes”, then placed on top of the larger one.
  • I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and laid it between the two buttons, then tied a knot on the right side for the scarf.
  • I hand cut the brim and top portion of the hat from Basic Black and added a hat band of Cherry Cobbler.
  • I placed the tag on the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
