Step Away From The Cards - Tags, Labels & Toppers - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

I had to take a photo in the rain yesterday - first time for everything I suppose!  It was so dark and dismal inside that I just couldn't get enough light.  If you look closely enough you can see the water droplets!

So, the Daring Cardmakers are stepping away from the cards once more and have been working on tags, labels and toppers.  You can see lots of inspiration HERE.

I've fallen in love with Christmas Puddings.  They're very popular at the moment and I just think they're really rather cute.  However, the love story ends there as I don't like eating them - I'd much rather have a mince pie!

I thought I'd have a go at making my own as I didn't have any relevant dies or stamps.  I used a circle die to cut the pudding out of corrugated card then die cut a partial circle from a wavy die for the top.

I added felt holly leaves and wooden painted berries on the top.  I used various papers from the First Edition Merry Little Christmas pad and added washi tape and ribbon to embellish.

It's a fun challenge so I hope you'll join in.

All being well, I hope to see you again next week!

Great tag, Shabneez, very clever way to make the Christmas pudding. I'm not keen on eating Christmas pudding either, I'd much rather have a pavlova! 😊 xx
