Miss Anya Hats Off

Today is my day to post on The Greeting Farm blog and I’ve been working on some tags for the holiday season to be used with gift cards.  I started out with the Cutters Baggies and Tags metal die from CC Designs then began adding stuff to it.  For this post, I’m going to focus on the red one … “you’re something special.” 

The image I used is one of the girls from Miss Anya Hats Off from The Greeting Farm.  This girl is a sitting gal so I also used the chair from Cozy Cafe from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.   I fussy cut around the images to merge them instead of masking them when I stamped.  I was doubting myself about the fussy cutting when I started cutting out the decorative part of the chair.  It was luck that I started on the left side because I was able to give up when I got around the top.  LOL  They’re both mounted with foam so they stick out from the card for some dimension. 

Copic colors used:
R59, 46, 12, 05
W8, 6, 4, 2
B99, 97, 95, 93, 91
C5, 4, 3, 2
E35, 34, 31, 30, 00, 0000
YR24, Y32, Y21
110, 0, E49, BV23
Paper: EP Keepin’ Cozy

For the outside envelope, I found an older TGF sentiment which worked well for the occasion. I loved how Marika used a bunch of different ribbons on her project so I followed suit.  Then I tied them all together with baker’s twine.  I also used the same twine for the outside of the envelope.  

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are off to a great week!
