To get my entry in on the "Tag You're It" challenge for this week! We were gone on vacation last week, and this week has been just crazy, but I finally got it done today, and I like it! The twist on this tag was that it had to have a Christmas tree on it. Here's my entry >>>
I apologize for the dingy pic, but while I try to take my pictures out in the sunshine, today there is no sun to be found! Oh, I know it's up there somewhere, but today it's hiding behind the clouds, wind and rain.
Anyway, I made a circle (#136 on my circle scissor) of the My Minds Eye Be Merry 'Frosty Flakes' paper, and backed it with a same sized circle of plain white cardstock for stability. I covered each of the snowflakes with Stickles to get a little bling going on the tag. When that was dry I added some brown inking around the outer edge.
The tree I cut freehand from green felt and put it on a lightweight cardstock scrap for a litle extra stability and machine stitched with red thread. The decorations are diamond Stickles dots.
The greeting was printed on my inkjet printer, trimmed and inked with brown ink. I punched a hole above the top of the tree and added a pretty bow from some WalMart wired ribbon. And voila! I had my tag finished.
I love this, and I think I'll use it on one of the goodie bags I make up at Christmastime. Each year I do all kinds of home baked goods that I take to family and friends, and this tag will be a special addition to a bag of goodies.
Everyone have a great weekend! Blessings, Becky
