DCM....INSIDE AND OUT & TAG TIME

Have an unexpected day off, so early
with the dare today! Still need a few more
Christmas cards, so great chance to catch
up. Today's dare is.....

'INSIDE AND OUT
Hi everyone Gillian here, and it's my turn to dare you all this week.
I dare you to take the design of your card to the inside as well as the outside.
Add a little finishing touch to match the theme on the outside,or Surprise the receiver with a flap, foldout, decorated journal block to write on,or one of those pop-out delights....It really adds so much to a card when there is attention to detail on the inside as well as the outside. I know
some of you are finished your
Christmas cards already so this week it's any theme, Christmas or not, but make the inside count too :) '

Some of my BG die cuts came in handy here with a touch of glitter. The paper I found at the bottom of my Christmas craft box, the snowman is a metal embellilshment and arranged on white glitter card.

I also made a few tags and really enjoyed doing them. Here is one for the 'Little Extra'.

'Santa's Little Extra Helper no 8 Tag Time
This is the last Christmas Little Extra before we let Santa's Little Helper put his feet up and have a rest.
By now you've probably finished making you cards, so for a change we thought we'd get you making some gift tags. However, if you've still got cards to make, then you can always use tags on cards instead.It's up to you, as long as there's a tag involved it's fine by us!'
I used my Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder on Bazzil card, sanded the embossing and added irridescent glitter glue to highlight the snowflakes. I also embossed a piece of acetate the same, cut them with Bigshot tag die and attached with ribbon. The snowman is cut from white foam (Sizzix die) and the 'sparkles' are cut from white gllitter card using Sizzix die. I added features to the snowman with glitter glue.
