I guess I have officially started the holiday season as I brought out my holiday stamp equipment along with my great big box of paper, stamps and punches. Today I made a tag for Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge #62 which is a tag. Yesterday, I made a card with a tag on it. Today, I made a tag all by itself. First, here is the sketch by Anya Schreier:
So many images to choose from, but for this one, the holly image won out. I stamped it on some patterned paper by DCWV called the Christmas Combo, all left over from last Christmas. I stamped the holly twice and cut the layers out and popped them up with dimensionals. The holly berries are also a little circular image from Sewing Box Christmas stamped on more of the Christmas Combo Paper. The striped holly layer, big surprise, Christmas Combo Paper too. I zig zag stitched around the edges and layered another identical white tag to the back to hide the stitching. I cut a few little banners to stamp my sentiment on and attached them with little mini clothespins dyed with food coloring. The final touch was a little bow tied with my bow easy. I love this tag and will have to think long and hard whose present to attach it to. Thanks for taking a look at my first little bit of Holiday spirit for the 2011 season.
