Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas - final instalment...

Hello everyone and lovely to see you!
Well, today I am sharing the final instalment of the Funkie Junkie's 12 tags of Christmas challenge.

Linda's original can be found HERE. What inspired me this time round was to put texture on the front of the tag wallet, even though the rest of mine is totally different. I also used the same shape again, a folded tag to form a wallet and I also used snowflakes on the inside of my tag, though again a bit differently than what Linda did:
My little wallet closes again with a magnet as you can see below.
Well, I think most of you will know all about this challenge by now, but just in case you don't, you can read all about it HERE. The extended deadline is today, the 8th of January, so I litterally just made it.... The challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique, with some fabulous prizes up for grabs.
Once again, I would like to thank Linda for all the amazing inspiration she has given with this wonderful challenge. This was the second year I played in it and I have enjoyed every minute of it! Thank you also to all my lovely visitors for all your encouraging comments, you are the best!!
A true friend freely advises justly, 
assists readily, adventures boldly,
 takes all patiently, 
defends courageously,
and continues a friend unchangeably.

I am going to enter this into the Simon Say Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is Blues
Here is to friendship!! Thank you for visiting!!!

This is such a beauty too Astrid, I´m afraid, I´ll have to lift this idea from you here, as it really speaks tro me to make a tag this way, so I just have to try that sometime soon, I think, and I also just love your colors on it, soo beautiful as always.
Have a wonderful night here now and lots of fun.

A gorgeous tag-altering dear Astrid.
So wonderful with the texture of the ruler, and the blue with brown, and white and the litte add of gold, makes it like a beautiful sky to see.
An amazing sweet wallet !

Beautiful Astrid! Love all the dry embossed and heat embossed detail! Thanks for joining along with Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

This is so clever on so many levels! I would've never thought to fold a tag into thirds, but it creates such a lovely effect. I adore the soft yet vibrant shades of blue you used and the ruler at the bottom is perfect! Thank you for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!

Jools Robertson said...

This is brilliant love the colour and sentiment, and the folded tag is ingenious! FAB!!

Marjie Kemper said...

How fabulous! Thank Goodness for Blog Lovin as it allowed me not to miss this beauty.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
