Make It Monday #143 : Modern Whimsy Style + Simon Says+ Festive Friday: Peace

I'm not sure I mastered the whimsical part of the Modern Whimsy Style challenge from Danielle Flanders at Capture the Moment this week - you can check out her tutorial here.

I did have fun and think this could be the basis for the bulk of my Christmas cards this year.



I started with the Peace One Liner die and trimmed the flags to fit under it. I then diecut the Tremendous Tags, Tiny Tags and ampersand to finish the sentiment.




The banner is strung on twine that is tied in a bow with a couple of bells hanging off the ends.

A dot of stickles covers the holes in the tiny heart and star tags.




I have a decent stash of Christmas papers and plan to knock out a few more of these tonight - I'd love to keep the jingle bells on the card, but will have to leave it off the ones that need to go in the mail.


Because Anything Goes at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog I am linking up with their challenge too and at Festive Friday the challenge is to revisit a previous challenge. I am linking this to the Peace Challenge.
