I was rummaging through tags and cards I had made for my husband and found a Christmas gift tag from last Christmas. It inspired this card:
I tore a lot of edges for SCS’s Thursday challenge. The torn edges on the kraft panel are straighter because I scored first and then tore. On all the other panels, I tore without scoring. I left the red panels un-torn because I was tired of tearing by then.
I also did a ton of sponging! I think that is my favourite thing to do. I sponged red ink on the red paper, green ink on the green paper, brown ink on the cream and kraft papers. I even sponged the ribbon! It was originally red and white. I found the white to be too bright, so I sponged it with brown ink.
The French here means “Merry Christmas my love” (it’s for my husband). For the star, I taped three scrap pieces of kraft together, drew a star in pencil, cut it out, erased the pencil, and then sponged the sides of it. Then I put it on a dimensional.
