Winter Wonderland

Welcome to the CREATION STATION BLOG HOP!  This month we are all about Christmas!  Are you ready yet?  I’m not…….I’m still in disbelief that it’s December so I am excited to see the ideas the team has for us today!

One of my favorite sets in the catalog is WONDERLAND.  I love the elegant design and that it’s not just for Christmas.  For today, I combined it with the coordinating WINTER WONDERLAND VELLUM STACK to create a card and set of vellum gift tags.

I started out with the idea to use the WINTER WONDERLAND VELLUM STACK for a mini treat bag to fill with tags.

The pine cone vellum is my favorite design, so I created the MINI TREAT BAG with it.  A couple of simple embellishments were just the right touch.  Sometimes less is more!

Next, I punched five different designs of vellum with the SCALLOPED TAG TOPPER PUNCH.

I tried to keep each of the tags simple and coordinated.  So in comes the SLEIGH RIDE EDGELITS and CHRISTMAS GREETINGS THINLITS.  The two work so well together and made the tags come together easily.

I think this set of tags would make a lovely gift, so I made a card to give with it.  I did another version of the BOKEH CARD from a few weeks ago.  This time I used gold accents to coordinate with the tags and added in a SNOWFLAKE ELEMENT.

Bokeh technique

For this subtle bokeh effect, I brayered Smokey Slate on Whisper White then added in Whisper White craft ink for the circles.  I used the same template I made for the first card.  Just take a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of scrap cardstock and punch different sizes of circles to use for sponging.  To blend it all in, I went over the whole piece again with the brayer.  This gives a soft and finished look.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my ideas and are ready to dive into your WINTER WONDERLAND VELLUM STACK!  Now it’s time to head over to Julie Beltramo to see what she’s done for Christmas today.

    The bokeh on the card is so subtle – but the perfect amount! I love it… But let’s talk about these tags!! I absolutely love this idea of vellum tags! I think I know what I’ll do with the black and vellum sheets now! Love it!

    Nicole–I love the tags in your bag. They’re so pretty and festival. I also think the bokeh technique behind the trees is genius!
