Tag, Day 13

Day 13 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Total coincidence that I had an all-day headache on the THIRTEENTH. I didn't want it to be a totally lost day, so I made a tag! (A surprise, I know.) I was totally intrigued by Amy Kolling's use of black for her tag base — fun! So here's my take:

I used a solid image rather than an outline stamp, as Amy did — I thought it was time for Dasher to see some ink. Once I'd embossed him in white, I added a flurry of snowflakes, stars and even a couple of dots to complete the look I wanted. I cut the "merry" twice, once in red glitter paper and once in white so I could overlap them just a bit. I balanced the sentiment with a circle reinforcement at the top. Some red metallic cord finished it off. 
I may have to make more black tags, such a great look! 

Supplies: white & Stampin' Up black cardstock & real red glimmer paper, Stampin' Up Dasher and assorted small stamps, Versamark, Wow white embossing powder, Hero Arts Fancy Cut Christmas die, red metallic cord

Pin It Now!

Love everything about this tag! It looks awesome with a black base, and I really must get that deer stamp. (possibly my first ever SU purchase? It could happen)
