Green Tangerines November-Part II

This card is made with fun in mind.  Yes, it's a bit bulky for mailing, probably requiring a padded envelope, but every now and then it's fun to send a card that's a surprise with its dimension!

There's a fun little mini bag in the kit that I trimmed with pinking shears at the top, and covered with a strip of patterned paper and one of the SRM stickers applied to a punched scalloped circle.  I applied the "believe" SRM sticker to the strip of patterned paper, and distressed it by rubbing gently with the side of a bone folder.  I needed a little more "weight" on the bottom of the card to counter the perceived weight of the tags stacked inside the bag, so I pleated some of the velvet ribbon in the kit, folding the pleats as I adhered the ribbon to the papers beneath. The papers covering the tags are all included in the kit, as are the mini clothespins that I used as "clips" at the top of two of the smaller tags (so the recipient could remove the two small tags and use them as package decorations or put on their tree!). I added stamped sentiments and mini sentiment tags to the smaller of the two tags, and mini bells to the top of the larger tag. 

Next up is an A2-sized card that is cut into a pennant shape.  It uses another of the "Happy Holidays" rub-ons from the kit and more of the pretty red velvet ribbon.  I die cut a poinsettia and leaves using Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die set, glittered the edges of the flower petals, and used 5 of the Queen & Co. yellow gems from the kit to simulate the inside of the flower.

Here's another card with no sentiment on the front, but unmistakable in its message.  Everything here is from the kit with the exception of the evergreen piece and the mini pinecone.  And once again, I pleated a small portion of the velvet ribbon to add more texture to the top of the card to support the perceived "weight" of the evergreen and pinecone pieces. The Hug Snug bows are centered with one of the American Crafts buttons from the kit, and topped with more of the yellow gems, which are repeated on the lower right corner of the card.

This "noel" card was made with pieces of patterned papers left from the other cards. It's accented with more of the May Arts crochet velvet ribbon, and another of the Maya Road transparent snowflakes that's been accented with clear coarse glitter and the Queen & Co yellow gems from the kit.  

And lastly for this month, another snowflake card, this time using the aqua patterned papers, three of the Maya Road transparent snowflakes, and more of the KaiserCraft pale blue pearls as accents on the glittered snowflakes.  I printed the sentiment on my computer and "anchored" it with two blue pearls.

I have a few more new cards to share with you later this week...until then, have a great one!
