Welcome to Day Three of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! We have another terrific guest and sponsor today: Concord & 9th.
Concord & 9th has some of the most original designs out there, I think, and so I can't wait to see what they sent me! (And the rest of Tracey's design team, of course.) Canada Post labour issues strike again (so to speak?). In the meantime, I pulled out a couple of sets that I have to make this:
The twig wreath comes from the Love You Mean It set, (sadly, it appears to have been retired). I turned and stamped the wreath three times then embossed it in sparkly embossing powder. Doing a quarter of the wreath at a time, I stamped the tiny berries and embossed in red. The to and from are from the Perfectly Penned alphabet set - yes, I used some of the little stamps at the bottom that are so easy to overlook! I had originally thought I would leave the centre of the tag open, but it seemed to need something else, so I added some patterned paper to the back and fussy cut it to match the outside of the wreath. The deep red ribbon brings out the red of the berries.
For details on how to participate in this fun event - and perhaps win a prize! - visit Tracey's blog, where you'll also see the fabulous makes by the Concord & 9th team as well as Tracey's team. Hope you'll join in the fun!

P.S. Today also marks the start of a new Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge! I'll be back with that soon.
