Card and Tag

Hello Everyone from a cold, foggy and frosty Bridlington. We had planned to go for quite a long walk along the cliff top but it definitely isn't the day for that sort of adventure. It is lovely of you to take the time to visit Jumbled Crafts-thank you.

This week at Tag Tuesday the theme is Myths and Legends


I do love dragons but I only have the one stamp with a dragon on it so I used that as my Myth. It is made by Abracadbra and I have had it for years. The background is some patterned card and I used my home made 'gelli' plate to add a bit of texture to it. I found the Tolkien quote on Google and thought it would fit nicely.

Here is another Christmas Card as I am still joining Marina in her attempt to make one each week. Someone who commented on her post suggested other places for her to add her Christmas cards. I used one of them as inspiration for my card this week. At 52 Christmas Card Throwdown they have a recipe challenge so I tried my best to follow that. I will enter my card there as well and thank them for giving me some inspiration this week


 I stamped the image onto a plain white card--it doesn't have a name on it so I don't know the maker.

 The sentiment is  part of BuzzCraft stamp. I added black ribbon and fasten it on with some wider tape so that I could add glitter at the edges when it was on the card on the card. Last were the little flower die cuts and the stones.

Have a beautiful day everyone-stay safe and happy

Love Chrissie x

Two fab creations - the tag has great detail and the Christmas card is very striking. I particularly love the row of bling at the bottom and the ribbon. Thanks so much, Chrissie, for joining me again on my Festive 48. Marina

Sage advice there from Mr Tolkien - and a cute tag... The monochrome Christmas card is a brilliant example of less being more - stunning stamp, delicately embellished with the contrasting ribbon and tiny gems - great!
