I think that everyone is fully aware that Christmas is coming. Everyone...that is...except my 2 yr. old. She just turned two and the whole Christmas thing is something that she just doesn't quite get yet. SO, in an effort to get her excited and teach her about my favorite holiday, we have been watching tons of old school christmas movies. Shows like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Jack Frost, and (of course!) Frosty the Snowman. And not the shiny new version, the old almost "clay-mation" movies that I remember from growing up in the 80's! It's been fantastic!
That is exactly what I think about when I see this super cute tag that Lea has created for us! Classic Christmas! She has used all the classic elements of the Holiday Season to create a project that will still be cute no matter what year the calendar says it is! I love how she has mixed stamping, Copics and her Cricut to create a piece that anyone would love to have waiting for them on Christmas morning.
The Snowman stamp by Inkadinkado (don't you just LOVE that name?!?!) gives a very polished look to the tag, but is still simple enough that a beginner stamper wouldn't be intimidated to give it a try. Notice how Lea has used her Copics to accentuate not only the edges of the Snowman, but also what would normally be just forgotten white space. It's a simple element to add, but it goes a long way in giving the card a polished and finished look.
The die-cut images featured here can be found on two different Cricut Cartridges, Joy of the Season and Winter Wonderland. If you haven't had a chance to look at either of these georgous cartridges, then I highly recommend that you Click Here to go straight to CuttersCreek and see for yourself. They could be the perfect addition to your holiday crafting, including creating fun tags like this one or your yearly Christmas Cards.
If you have any questions about this project, or about how to use Copics or your Cricut, then just ask them! Lea, or another member of the design team will be happy to help!
