Happy New Year! It’s Wednesday and we’re back after a short break with another challenge over at the Frilly & Funkie Challenge Blog!
This challenge is hosted by Pamellia (My Little Craft Things), who has chosen the theme HOLIDAY HUES …Pamellia says “I would like to see your favourite colours for your favourite holiday. Choose whatever holiday you like, just make sure your project is shabby chic or vintage in style.”
Christmas is my absolute favourite holiday! This is a snapshot from instagram of my Christmas spent in the Swiss mountains above Gruyere with my Husband and a couple of friends.
I used my sewing machine to stitch portions of the tag and wrapped red cotton around an adornment arrow and adhered with hot glue. The red cotton around the arrow was inspired by an awesome project by Paula Cheney.
I added ephemera from the expedition ephemera pack and used the framelits tags die set to cut a tag from kraft cardstock and a hole reinforcer from sticky back canvas which was inked with walnut stain and vintage photo distress inks. I die cut “Thanks” from faux leather and adhered to the card. I mounted the project onto fabric and faux leather to give the card lots of texture and layers.
