Hi there friends and followers!
Today its my turn to showcase this weeks card in the Live and love crafts blog. I will be doing the same every sunday, Im hoping you will hop along on my journey together with Live and love crafts .
This week us ladies in the dt are creating something with christmas leftovers in mind. I have promised myself to make at least two christmas cards each month but Im not quit ready to start just yet cause Im still a bit tired of them ;) I made a valentines card that is actually for a very special friend in blogland that is celebrating her birthday in january. I have once again put my Silhouette Cameo to good use and this time I chose to make a tag pocket card. So fast and easy to fold! Im loving it!
So now I got you thinking: wheres the christmas leftover on this? Well, the dp´s are from Maja designs collection Its christmas time 12*12 and Ive used two sheets, the back of Santa and the tree and also The perfect gift. I think they are amazing because they are so versatile. Looking at them like this I bet you couldn't have guessed they were christmas leftovers, ha? ;) Here´s a closer look at the pocket itself:
The image is from Magnolias latest collection and I think she´s just adorable! She is colored with my di´s as usual, mostly using these ink pads: antique linen, tattered rose, vintage photo, weathered wood, pumice stone and walnut stain. The sentiment is also a Magnolia and reads With all my love. I love the amazing rhinestone lace, its available in three colors and I chose Heather pink. The shabby seam binding are also a new fav of mine. I added it to the MF tag and my own tag in ash rose and vanilla cream. Underneath the image I place a round doily, cheese cloth and a piece of jute fabric. The flowers are white poppies and a Hortensia Petal pink.
As you can see I have also stamped a love sentiment around the edges of the spellbinder and then embossed it with white embossing powder. Besides that I have also added some white pearl string around the same. You get a glance of the amazingly shabby bark heart here as well. You can see it even better here:
I wanted to make it look even more shabby and to do that I added some distress crackle paint in white.
The sentiment on the tag reads You are so sweet and is also a Magnolia. (it´s on sale, hurry up!! ;))
Look at that amazing vintage button! It was so up my ally ;) I have some more close up for you to look at if you'd like :) In this picture you can also glance an amazing metal decoration that I also added to the seam binding, the Prima velvet Trinkets.
Thanks for checking in with me today!
I´d be happy if you had the time to write me some words!
Lots of love
