Pretty Christmas tag

I love the Perfect Pennant die!  It’s so versatile!  You can make pennants, decorative tags or cards.  I made this tag for PPA’s Tag your it Challenge.  I die cut some shimmer silver paper and embossed it with the Snowburst embossing folder.  I had some retired music DSP from the Love Letter DSP pack and made a fan fold flower.  I cut a 1-1/2 strip of DSP then used the Scallop Trim Border punch on one side.  I scored every 1/4″  and using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool really makes it fast and easy.

To add some sparkle I used Dazzling Details on the fan fold flower.  The silver glimmer snowflake is die cut using the Northern Frost Sizzix strip and decorated with an 8mm pearl.  The pearls are a sneak peek from the upcoming mini occasions catalog.  To hang the pennant or tie to a gift I used Very Vanilla satin ribbon.  Easy to make and so elegant.

Memorial day card

PPA is having a Memorial Day theme challenge and I created a card for my father.  He was in the army reserves and was always very proud of his unit and his military service.  I restored this photo for him and therefore the photo will be a gift within this card I created for him.   I too am very proud of my father.  He’s been retired for quite some time now but he loves to reminisce about his days in the military.  This Memorial Day we remember all branches of the military and thank them for their sacrifice and service.

I used My Digital Studio and the Big Shot to create this card.
