This is the design. The sentiment was also cut in red  but I do not have a picture of that:

 Besides this order I made lots of other Christmas cards.  And I am sharing a few here. Lots and lots of white. This one with a touch of pale blue:

The card speaks for itself:

I spent some time with my eldest sister.  She has this amazing window die:

City Crafter #290

Hello everyone!
Are you ready for a new challenge? Because there is a new one waiting    for you at the City Crafter Challenge.  Today Kirsty is our host and she picked  the theme"123 TAG!" Create three different tags, using three different designs. You can make tags for Christmas  or any other occasion.

My tags are made to add them to Christmas presents.  Recently I received some lovely crafting supplies  from dear friends and added a piece to every tag.

My first tag is made in blue :) The heart border is cut from dark blue cardstock.  It looks black on the photo but it definitely is blue. This  gorgeous star stamp was a gift from Marit:

The second tag has a touch of Scandinavian design.  I used washi tape to create a border. The wooden snowflake was also a gift from Marit:

My third and last tag has a modern twist.  Black and white paired up with a touch of gold. The wooden deer was sent to me byRos:

And here they are together:
