Day 5 of Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event — it's dark and gloomy outside where I am, so why not stay indoors and make tags? ;) Today's sponsor is Altenew.
My Altenew stamps are not of the festive variety, so today I chose to be inspired by Altenew design team member Svitlana Shayevich.
A total departure from yesterday's extravaganza of bright colours... and just generally a departure for me. Might be why I CASEd Svitlana's design closely. ;)
My only real changes from the original were to add some white ink sponging around the edges of the tag — I always like the frosted look this gives to kraft cardstock — and heat embossing both the white and brown boughs, because embossing. :D With all the neutrals, I went all out and added a little hemp twine along with my white ribbon. And oh look, another tag I can enter in the Wednesday Simon Says Stamp challenge, Christmas Gift Tags.
There are beautiful inspiration tags on Tracey's blog today — I hope you'll check them out and consider joining us! There are prizes to be won both for making tags and for commenting on designers' posts.
