Christmas Card Club #7- Animals.

I've put together 3 cards for this challenge, which has been set for us by Kate. They all use tags as the focal point, this one features a stamp by Indigo Blu, from a set called Winterland Wood. The small row of trees is from a Card-io set called Christmas Scenery 1, and the circular sentiment is from a Hobby Art set called Winter Wishes. Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks were brushed over torn paper to create the hills, and then Broken China and Stormy Sky brushed in for the sky. Snowflakes were added using Liquid Pearls in White Opal.
 The Embossing Folder used for the backing tag is by Crafts Too, and is called Happy Christmas. I brushed a little silver Gilding wax over that for some definition.
 The large tags are cut with a Tim Holtz Tag die.
Both of these first two cards are mounted onto A4 card, folded.

This one was made very similarly, with the same inks used to create the hills.  The larger  trees come from the same Indigo Blu set, stamped in Versafine Olympia Green. The deer is from a Card-io set called Dear Deer, the rabbits and cabin from one called  Christmas Scenery 2. Stickles in Icicle were added to the roof. The background tag is cut from a sheet I stamped out in silver on dark blue card and heat embossed. The stamp is called Merry Christmas Background, by Inca. Probably no longer available, as I bought this wood mounted many, many years ago. The sentiment is from a Card-io set called Winter Wishes 3.
This is an A5 card, topfolded, and uses a smaller tag.
 All Card-io stamps on here, apart from the sentiment.That is from the same Hobby Art set as before.
 The treeline from Christmas Scenery 1 again, along with a couple of individual trees also in the set.
 The larger foreground trees are from Mini Tall Trees, and the deer from Dear Deer.
 The broken fence is from Crystal Globe, and was extended slightly across the tag.
 The same background stamp was used for the backing tag, stamped and heat embossed in gold this time.
 These two stamped backing sheets I've used have been in my stash for way more years than I care to remember, as I recall stamping and heat embossing  a number of sheets of card with it when it was bought!
 A few fibres finished off these two tags, and some ribbon for the first one.

I love the little scenes you have created on your cards and what a great idea to mount the tags onto a card base with another just peaking out behind. Hugs Mrs A.

#1's deer is just so beautiful, with the design swirled around the body. Love that you've done the tags for each of your cards too, & the white opal shows very pearlescent. The woodland winter scenes you've created on the other cards is pretty and with each scenic tag, I like how you've designed the look of the 'behind' tag. Good job on each one and I love the deer on each of your creations! TFS & Have a good week.

I am quite jealous of your progress with the Christmas cards. Aside from the occasional card here and there, I have been on card vacay since July 2016. It might be time for me to enjoy it again. Your projects are so well put together. Yay girl you go!!! xoxo
