Simple Holiday Tag

Hero Arts challenge this week is simple and quick cards. I created this little tag as my simple card. Probably took me a little longer than 10 minutes. :)

I am hoping that as you look at this you see an old fashioned wooden sled. That was my intent. This was really easy to create. I basically took a rectangle and use a punched out circle to trace the top line of the sled and a punch to punch out the bottom. I then stamped, clear embossed and sponged. After that was done I cut it into thirds.

I created a few scraps to hold it togther on the back.

The wreath is a snowflake stamp stamped in green ink and cut with shaving off the ends of some of the snowflake to give it a wreath appearance.

Punched the tag, colored the bird and created a rope for my sled and done.
