Ooops...A Missing Tag for the Twelve Tags of Christmas Challenge

Hey and welcome. Realized I'd forgotten to do a post with today's tag, and thought the Twelve Tags of Christmas challenge had closed. Then I saw where Mr. Linky was still open, so here goes:

 



- Kraft tag, a layer of gesso applied. Then stamped a text stamp in a light brown. DeeDee's Digi Bells were the snippet box, (printed when I was on the DT). Colored with Copics, die cut with a xstitch circle die.

- sheet music torn, and sponged with DI, placed under the bells circle. Used a snippet from a poorly cut wreath (cut for this card); salvaged the bow & holly to use on this tag. The little blue glitter bit under the ribbon is a snippet center cut from this tag's wreaths and I just liked the way the colors looked layered together!

- the lace tie at the top started as a white; used the same DI to color as on the music score...added in a slender gold cording. Adhered some feathers to match the other colors and then remembered the Challenge tags needed to have some stamping...so stamped HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments' Peace in gold Delicata and embossed it to have it stand out more prominently.

It's my understanding the Christmas Challenge Tags Linky is open for 4 more days, so c'mon and join in, it's fun.

Ya'll come back, now heah? Thanks for stopping by, and if it's cold where you are, stay warm.

Big hugs.

Mary, I think this is my favourite of your tags. I really like the image and the muted accenting. Also the blue ribbon makes a refreshing change from the predictable reds!

We have not been too badly affected by the deluge of rain over here, but had to drive in it for three hours after a weekend away at a craft event. We are safe and sound now though! Hugs, Anne xx
