Nordic Christmas Cone and more... - Edna Taylor

Good morning and welcome to the blog today.

It's sweltering hot here today and I'm sure it is where you are - take care in the sun and don't forget the sun cream!
I'm tucked away in my craft room with the blind closed to minimise the sauna effect as we get the sun at the back of the house most of the day and that's where I spend most of my time. LOL 

Onto today's shares. 
I've used the gorgeous Nordic Christmas Square cone die set for the cone and the card.

I decided on an ivory and blue colour combo for this one and used the fab Nuvo Jewel drops in Sea Breeze to add detail but not interfere with the overall tone of the project. They work perfectly to enhance your projects.

The decoration carries on to the closure and the doves really lend themselves to more than a Christmas theme and would be fabulous for wedding favours too. 

My second share is made using the same dove panel only this time as a full background for my card. 

Products used -

I cut the glitter card panel bigger than I needed and starting at one end die cut the dove die into the card stock. I then placed it beside the first cut upside down and continued in this way across the piece of card.
I glued it to the backing blue card and then die cut both with the layering die from the large envelope die set. I layered this die cut panel onto the high gloss Chrome silver card. 
I punched a slot at either end of the tag keeping them centred and threaded the ribbon through.  
I finished off the card as seen. 
The base card measures 5 x 6 1/2" to give you an idea of scale.
