As you're visiting be sure to comment on all the DT members blogs for the chance to win the image they have used to make their creation. The image you have a chance to win on my blog is IZZY the ELF. now how adorable is Izzy? My husband enjoyed Izzy, he said Izzy reminds him of the Whos on the Grinch that Stole Christmas. ~lol. I used Izzy with the gifts for my card. i added some white fun flock on his little elf shoes. i pop dotted the bows on the gifts to give the gifts some dimension and colored them with glitter pens. i added lots of sparkle to my snowflake by using Martha steward glitter. The mat in the back of Izzy is made using C.C. Designs Cosmo glitter paper for lots of shimmer and i embossed it with the snowflake embossing folder from cuttlebug. I also used Izzy alone as a tag. I enlarged her quite a bit and added a santa hat to her using Christmas Scamp's hat from last month's releases. I used polar white flowersoft on her hat and around her shoes. I stamped to and from on her shirt and placed a glittery candy cane in her hand. ( for a closer look, click on photos) I really enjoyed making this tag i think she looks soooo festive and would make a cute accessory to any Christmas gift don't you think? Well that's all i have for today, so i will send you on your way to the ever so talented Diane. I thank you so much for joining in our blog hop today and leave you with this coupon code "Remember" for 40% off your order at The Character Cafe shop (coupon code expires Friday 13th at noon.)
