My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Snowman Gift Tag!

Front of Snowman Gift Tag
Back of Snowman Gift Tag!
The tag is made using a charm image from Cricut Cartridge "Doodlecharms" and the Snowman image from Cricut Circle Exclusive Cartridge "Paper Trimmings".
I placed one a snowman on the charm (tag) to cut out an opening for the snowmen.
I used the Gypsy and a 6x12 mat to layout the images and layers.
I made a 'mirror' image of one snowman and the layers to create the backside of the tag.
I cut out two of the mats using blue cardstock for the mat.  I 'sandwiched' a piece of clear plastic between the two tags.
I cut two snowmen from glitter paper.  One snowman is a 'mirror' image of the other.  As I cut several of the mats, I used various colors for the layers.  A paper punch by Martha Stewart was used to cut the holly and berries.
The two sides of the tag are glued together with clear plastic between.  The clear plastic will be used to adhere the snowmen to the tag.
Pop-dots of glue are used to give dimension to the tag.
Blue Snowflake Ribbon from Michaels Craft Store
Large Snowflake paper punch from Martha Stewart
White Gel Pen used to create 'stitching' around card
Little heart paper punch with 'stitching'
"To" stamped on the front
"From" stamped on the back

This tag will be entered into the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge...
