The Card Concept & 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hey Everyone

It’s that time again for a new challenge at The Card Concept – except this fortnight we are doing something different. We’re also playing along with the very talented Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  You’re going to want to play along with Tracey’s challenge as she’s giving away prizes!!!  If you leave a comment on my blog I will randomly choose one person to be entered into the chance to win one of Tracey’s fabulous prizes.  Gotta love a challenge that offers the chance to win! So our challenge for you to create a tag or a card with a tag using a snowman. Here’s the inspiration pics:


25 Days of Christmas Tags

I saw that we had this challenge a little while ago and realised I don’t own a snowman stamp.  I almost caved and brought a stamp set just for this challenge but I just couldn’t justify spending the cash on a stamp set I would use once (oh hang on I think half of my craft room is sets that I’ve only used once! lol).  I think I’ve shied away from buying them as I don’t know how a snowman card would go down, being that it’s summer here in Australia and it just doesn’t seem right to give a snowman card.  So I searched around until I found a free digital image and gave him a bit of colour. Here’s what I came up with:


We would love for you to join us – so create a tag and link it up!

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Fun tag! I love the layering and textures! Great idea to find a digi to use for the snowman… he’s a cutie!

  2. Australia is on my “bucket list”. Sounds like this would be the time to come – it’s summer.
    the tag is great. The snowman is so cute.
    thanks for sharing.

  3. Narelle, I feel I need to counsel you here. You NEED snowman stamps. ‘Nuff said 🙂 This is one gorgeous tag and I love that digi snowman – too cute!

  4. Love all your textures and adorable snowman you manage to find! I got a chuckle out of reading your blog! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Absolutely everything about this card is amazing, Narelle! Love the snowman and the way you colored him, the crinkled ribbon and bow, the doily, the burlap… well, you get the idea… EVERYTHING. And snowmen might go over well, It’s usually 70 and sunny in Florida at Christmas and I have my house decked out with snowmen! I’ll admit, it felt weird the first couple of years after I moved here, but I love them. 🙂
