A Wild Holiday!

I was inspired by Elena Roussakis' Lawn Fawn tag on day 12 of Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  Elena made a tag with a lift-the-flap feature and a sweet Lawn Fawn scene.  Here's my CASE:

I also wanted to play over at the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge.

The Hats Off to You is my oldest set, which was perfect for this tag!  I tailored down one of the hats to fit the croc, gave the lion some earmuffs, and donned the giraffe and little elephant in scarves that I drew with a Copic Multiliner.  Those scarves were kind of fun to put on - I cut off their heads (gruesome, I know), glued the scarf to the body, and glued the head on top of it.  All the elements including the banner were fussy cut.  The tag was cut the old fashioned way.  I just chopped two corners out of a rectangle of both white and patterned paper, and punched a whole through them.  The flap was die cut into the top layer and the gift card slots were die cut into the bottom layer.  I used the LF Road Border to create the snow hills.  The inside background and banner were ink blended.  I gave the little elephant a sign made with a black piece of cs heat embossed in white and glued to a brown paper "stick".
