March Cardmaking - Another label with oval images

For our third card I decided to use yet another label (SX) and layered on oval images!!  For these cards we started by gluing our decorative paper to our card fronts.  We then coloured our images and layered them onto an oval of cardstock (Nestibilities) in a colour that coordinated with our backgrounds.  We punched holes on the two ends our our embossed label die cuts and inserted the ends of our ribbon and held them in place on the back with double sided tape. The short section we trimmed off was tied using a single knot to the piece we had just added to our labels to simulate a bow.
Once the labels were glued to our card fronts we added our oval focal elements overlapping the ribbon using 3D foam tape.

The tulips are from WP clipart and the little snowman is from Torico - Birdie Brown.  I have started making at least a few Christmas card kits for each class which allows those who have enough of everything else to make a Christmas one for later this year.
I will be making up the extras for my Christmas card stash!!
