Woodland Christmas Tag Card

Hello, Friends! Let’s get this wonderful Wednesday started with a cheery Woodland Christmas Tag Card.  Grab a cuppa and let’s get started!

What do you do when you have bits and pieces from favorite paper collections?  If you are like me, you put them together to create a lovely hodgepodge style card.  This 6×6 creation uses leftover bits from my Button Farm Club Cosy Christmas Card Kit.  Pair them up with a Shabby Woodland Christmas Tag from Polly’s Paper Etsy and some gorgeous Poinsettias.  Next, tie a bow with Little Birdie Tartan Ribbon.  Then tuck in some  Gold Glitter Stars and this hodgepodge comes together as a visual treat!

TIP: Create a dimensional background with an old Christmas Snowflake Ornament!

TIP: Stack itty bitty fussy cut images together to create a big visual impact.  First, back the images with foam tape to create dimension.  Then top them with a petite poinsettia.

A Peek Inside

Now dress up the inside of the card with a box pocket, more bits and pieces of paper and some lovely treats.

TIP: Product packaging is often pretty enough to use on a card!  The Cosy Christmas Tags packet had this lovely botanical print that was just too nice to toss in the trash bin.

Dress up a gift packet of hot chocolate with the product packaging! Then tie a couple of tags on with rustic twine. Now top with a Little Birdie gold glitter star and you’ve got a very pretty presentation.  Then tuck in a mini candy cane stirrer and a Ghiradelli Chocolate Snowman to complete the gift.

I love the challenge of using up all the bits and pieces of a card kit, don’t you?

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh my woman! What you can do with bits and pieces of cute paper is so impressive! Your card is beautiful and it’s so helpful to see what can be done with our scraps …that I just can not throw away! Thanks again Kathy for teaching us your tips and tricks! Big hugs, Suzy Q

    Happy to see another collaboration with Ginny (Polly’s Paper Studio)! Every time I make an attempt to use up bits and pieces, the result isn’t as pretty as when you do it…but I intend to keep trying. I can’t bring myself to a point of throwing pieces away! I’ll figure it out one of these days. In the meantime, thanks for your encouragement and inspiration!

    Lovely card full of bits and bobs. LOVE it and using up pretty bits that would otherwise go in the trash bucket. It’s all about the layers. Pretty card Kathy!

    Such a darling card, Kathy! I love the idea of putting a tag on the front of a card and using the hodgepodge effect. This paper collection is quickly becoming a favorite. I really like the nostalgic feel of it and I especially like that darling little wooden deer. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!
