Christmas in July.... no snow!

While creating for our CHRISTMAS IN JULY challenge at Card Crafter's Circle, we've had NO SNOW here in my part of Australia, so I've hit the bottle! No not really, I've just made some gift tags, and displayed them on a brandy bottle..... I assure you it's the same brandy bottle, just photographed 3 times, and stitched together!


These tags are 3 of the 4 images you will find in the sweet Mini Christmas set from Happileigh Scrappin'... who is one of our sponsors this week...

I've printed the images quite large, large enough to write on the back.  They are fussy cut, and simply mounted on a fabulous glitter card, the holly on green/black glitter, the bell and snowman on white. I have added extra sparkle here and there with black glitter pen, to define edges (which my new camera flash has kindly not shown). The holly berries are retouched with red glaze pen, and I have added a wee white pom pom to the snoman's hat.  I thought these were a snazzy way to jazz up a bottle of Christmas Cheer!

There is still plenty of time to join in our CHRISTMAS IN JULY challenge at the Card Crafter's Circle, with the challenge closing on Friday, at 12 noon (Australian Time)..... come over to the Card Crafter's Circle to grab the details, and see what prizes are up for grabs!  Thanks for peepin'!

How cute, I think I like the Holly the most. Don't tell me that was the hardest to fussy cut, right? Great job on the coloring for these too, especially the bell!
