Now for this month's theme: Mix and Match!

I have to admit that at first this theme gave me some angst. There is just so much to choose from, it was tough to get my ideas focused. In the end, I ended up mixing Carta Bella Cool Summer with Giddy Up and then using a silhouette file for the card and a stamp for the tag. 

Everything coordinates so well because Samantha is flawless in her execution of her product lines, but it was so fun finding these pieces separately and coordinating them together.

This tag was fun to make and I used gold embossing powder with the red ink to make the reindeer pop off the tag. Gold sequins add some holiday magic to the final projects.

Supplies: Carta Bella (Cool Summer: Ice Cream Borders, Giddy Up Boy: Yee Haw) JustRite (Vintage Labels Three Dies, Holiday Magic Stamps) Silhouette Store (Card Reindeer).

The cards are great but I think the striped is my favorite. Each one is so different but the deer pops out on all of them.
