Another 3 for the ~Funky Junkie Christmas Tags Challenge


 I'm nearly there -  I've completed 10 of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style hosted by Linda Cloughlin and sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique.
I'm still not quite in order, but that doesn't matter, as long as they all get linked up by 19th December.

Week 10

I used Linda's inspiration of the kraft and and stamped white spots, which I heat embossed.  The snowflake was painted with Antique Linen  and then the edged covered with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP.  There's also a vellum layer, this was also heat embossed with white on the tips.  The little star button whas covered with Red Tinsel  EP and I used the frayed threads from the burlap trim to 'tie' the button.  I kept everything neutral and used Watering can Archival to stamp the sentiment, which was clear embossed.

Week 11
I've kept to Linda's red/white and snowflake theme, but as I don't have a suitable large sentiment, I made my focal image the white snowflake, which was embossed  in the matching folder and then  heat embossed with white EP.

Week 12
I followed Linda's inspiration for this, I didn't have a suitable script, so there's some music score faintly stamped in the background.  I decided to decorate and add a small kraft envelope, which will contain money or a gift card.

I've just 2 more left to complete, so it's back to the craft desk for me tonight.

Whew, I'm very impressed with the way you are motoring through this challenge, Avril! Three more lovelies and only two to go - you will definitely cross the finish line! Your snowflakes are gorgeous, especially the one on the kraft card. Wonderful layers and embossing on it. And the vellum layer is wonderful too. I really love the red card - an absolute stunner! So glad you discovered this challenge and are enjoying it.

Hugs,
Linda
