Tags, Day Two
Day two of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, and so far, I'm keeping up! :D Not sure that will last much longer, but I'll celebrate the small victories. Again today, it was hard to decide which tag to be inspired by, but eventually I went with Jinny Newlin's tag. I focused on the round die cut design, red and white colours and the lovely embellishments for the tie. Here's mine:
I thought this Merry & Bright die was perfect for the CASEing of Jinny's tag. I didn't have any white glitter paper, so I cut it from silver glitter paper instead. Against the red, it just didn't have the "pop" I wanted, so I went with regular white cardstock instead. For the top, I've used a red and two silver jingle bells as well as red and white twine and ribbon. Not as fancy as the original, but I like how it looks. Of course I couldn't let my silver die cut go to waste, so I used a navy background with it.
This time I added a silver star and silver cord.
My sentiment is certainly the focus of these tags, so I'm adding this to the current Just Us Girls challenge to make the sentiment the focal point.
