Pixie Cottage ....Anything but a card



Good Morning Everyone,

Today's Pixie Cottage DT Saturday Showcase theme is Anything But A Card. I found the inspiration for my project here a few months ago. The original dimensions for the wagons base are 4X5 inches and were a bit too small for me, I experimented with the dimensions and ended up with a base of 6X5 inches for my wagon .



I was pleased with the results and plan to make a few of these wagons for the kids teachers as Christmas presents.



I made my Christmas tag with The Pixie Cottage's Jolly Old Elf Stamp which is designed by Alisa Ramirez. Jolly Old Elf is colored in with Copic Markers and the fur along his cuff and cap are covered in with Sparkles. For fun, I added a white pom pom to his cap as well.



For more inspiration, be sure to check out The Pixie Cottage DT blogs. I have already seen a few of their projects and they are awesome!

Project details................
card stock, Scor Pal, 3/8" circle punch, 1/2 " circle punch, tiny candy cane for handle and brads. Scrap pieces of DP for the presents, ribbon and silver cord. The image is from The Pixie Cottage.


Have a beautiful weekend and thank you all so much for stopping by!

hugs


Risa
