The new Winter Wonderland challenge is 'Tag You're It' and we want to see either gift tags or tags on cards. The challenge is sponsored by Crafty Ribbons who are offering the lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their store.
I've decided to make a tag using snippets of card, paper and ribbon so I'm heading to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. I'm also entering the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge 'Tags', the The Merry Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes + Christmas' and Crafty Friends 'Christmas' challenge. This is a scheduled post so I'll link to these challenges when I get home from work this evening!
Dies: Creative Dies 'Elegant Reindeer' (magazine freebie), Creative Expressions 'Pierced Tags', Memory Box 'Mini Holly Leaves'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Snippets: Blue snowflake paper, white matt card, dark brown, gold and white pearlescent card, red mirri
Other: White satin ribbon
I attached the blue snowflake paper onto white card and then die cut and embossed the largest tag. I die cut the reindeer from dark brown card and attached it to the bottom of the tag. I die cut it again from gold card, attached the antlers and inlaid the swirl. I then die cut three snowflakes from white pearlescent card and attached them around the reindeer. The bow was die cut from red mirri and attached to the reindeer's neck. As I didn't have any very small red gems for Rudolph's nose, I die cut the Memory Box holly berries from red mirri and used one of them - the perfect size! To finish, I threaded the white ribbon through the hole in the tag and trimmed the ends.
