Well I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps and this week's theme is Tall & Skinny. So I decided to make a "present" card for this challenge. I started off using 12"x 12" Early Espresso card which I cut down to 4"x 9" finished card size. I used Bo Bunny collection called 'Believe' for the rest. After putting 3 layers down, I added a light green/white bow using Maruyama Ribbon by Magenta and then laid red glitter tape on top of the Maruyama for the ribbon on my present. I then stamped a tag by Whimsy Stamps called 'Vintage Holiday Gift Tags' using black memento ink onto shimmery white paper and coloured it using Prismacolor pencils. You can find Whimsy Stamps in the store here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_146/Raindrop-Echo-Designs-Sentiments-Collection.htm
I then decided to add some bling to the tag by using glitter and used metallic thread to tie it to the bow. So I added a Santa hat using Flourishes Stamp set called 'Dear Santa' which again colored using Prismacolor pencils. You can find Flourishes Stamps in the store here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/item_1330/DEAR-SANTA-Clear-Stamp-Set-from-Flourishes.htm
I added some glitter and flocking to the hat. I then stamped the sentiment from the same Flourishes Stamp set using black crafter's ink and emboss using gold embossing powder.
