a card and a tag...

Hello!!!   Stopping in with another card for the MFT sketch challenge that uses the colors from the current MFT color challenge.  I used the Snowflake Splendor card kit, again.  This time I used the stamp set to create my snowflakes using three of the colors from the palette.  I stamped three snowflakes and then layered two behind the dark pink panel that was die cut with the MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle Stax.   The sentiment is from an older MFT card kit Snowflake Sparkle and was stamped on vellum and heat embossed in white.  I added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins that are close in color to the dark pink although a couple are coming across as purple!

I don't often make tags, but decided to make one using an AJVD stamp set called Pine Branches for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to make a Christmas tag.  I stamped one of the images from the set in opposite corners with watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and then heat set.  I then inked up the piece with some Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink.  The piece was then die cut with the tag from the AJVD Minnie Pearl tag set and some additional distress oxide ink added.  I splattered the tag with white paint mixed with water to add some snow.   The word Peace was die cut from some silver glitter cardstock and then adhered.  I added some ribbon in a color similar to the Iced Spruce ink and then tied it with some mini tinsel trim.

Hope you have a wonderful day!!
