All Stand for Christmas by Tracey Fairgrieve


Well December is here and before we know it Christmas will be 
right on our doorsteps are you beginning to get excited??

I'm sharing a Christmas Tag Card I actually made way back in August for a That's Crafty! sample on Hochanda. I used this as a prototype for a Christmas Card that you may have seen but I thought this was worth sharing as it has never been seen on the blogging scene.

Here in words and pictures is my All stand for Christmas Tag Card.


Stamping out the house and trees designed by Donna Gray I proceeded to sew on strips of lace, fibres, loose threads and heated Tyvek painted in pearl paint to imitate snowfall.






Colouring the scene in pencil I repeat stamped the image, coloured in a
 similar way then cut each segment out layering up the scene.






An off cut of the Poinsettia Tree Stencil that I had pushed modelling paste through was glued onto a #8 Size tag and painted in pearl paint. The house and sewn on elements was then glued down on top. Clamping them down until they were glued down firmly.






Small greyboard snowflakes painted in Antique Silver embellish the sky 
along with dots and dabs of white Enamel Accents on the trees and roof top.
The addition of silver micro beads embellish the snowfall and a greyboard 
Happy Christmas sentiment painted in Antique Silver marks the season.






To make the tag stand I simply folded a piece of card and 
glued it onto the back of the tag to keep it upright.

My All Stand for Christmas Tag Card is complete.






I'm so glad I got chance to share this with you all
