CASE Study Challenge #166 - Christmas Tag

I have been trying (unsuccessfully for the most part) to complete more card challenges.  Life is crazy, blah blah blah…

Tonight, I saw a post on Facebook that Case Study Challenge Blog didn't have many entries for this challenge and had no takers for their Guest Designer spot.

Well, my paint isn't dry on the project I need to finish, so why not work on a fun one while I wait :)

Here's the inspiration-

And here's what I came up with -

Thanks for stopping by!

Supply List:
Cardstock - Kraft - Michaels
Patterned Paper - Lost & Found Christmas - My Mind's Eye
Dies - Tag Sale #3 & Christmas Poinsettia - Papertrey Ink
Other - Platinum and Old Paper Stickles - Ranger; Ribbon.

Holiday Card Workshop Homework - Day 1

My addiction to Online Card Classes continues.  I'm currently taking the 2013 Holiday Card Workshop.

Day 1 focused on different ideas for the insides of cards.  This one used a different fold with a hidden greeting inside.

I love it (that Savvy Stamps Partridge always makes me happy), but it seems like it needs a little something else.

I'll have to put it aside for a bit and look at it again to figure it out.

Sweet Elephant Baby Card

I made this card for a recent submission.  It wasn't chosen for publication, but it is one of my new favorites anyway.

 The background is birch paper stamped with the dauber of Distress Paint in Picked Raspberry.

Serious cuteness :)
