I love coming to the ScrapStreet blog and seeing the wonderfully creative Holiday cards being showcased!
I am a "newbie" when it comes to paper creations - it wasn't until a month or so ago I really started to dive in to the world of paper crafting ... so I feel like I have a lot to learn and a long way to go before I'll be able to create really unique and beautiful paper projects, but I wanted to create some sort of Holiday greeting to send to our family and friends this year. This is what I came up with:
I purchased white tags from my local craft store and since I've been engulfed in the world of digi for so long, I felt very comfortable using software (Corel) to create a greeting to print out on the tags. You could also stamp a greeting or saying on the tags ...
Once I had printed up a dozen or so tags, I inked each one with Tim Holtz Distress Ink with Peeled Paint (green), Vintage Photo (brown) and Worn Lipstick (pink).
I used Tim Holtz Grunge Snowflake stamps to stamp randomly along the edges and then used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo embossing powder.
I had some brown envelopes tucked away, and used one of the larger Grunge Snowflake stamps on the corner and embossed it with Antiquities embossing powder.
I found a piece of bright green snowflake ribbon that I wanted to use, but it was way too bright, so I distressed it with Vintage Photo distressing ink (I love that stuff!)
These were easy to create and each one is unique ... and I hope other paper crafting "newbies" can use this idea to create greeting tags of their own!!
