Can you guess what this post is about?? Yep, it’s my X tag for the Chocolate Baroque tag swap & after failing miserably to come up with an idea using ‘xylophone’, ‘xylonite’, or ‘xanthic’, I gave in & made a Christmas tag & piled a load of stuff on it.
The first step was cutting a size eight tag from a piece of CB patterned paper, then stamping on it with the (retired) Winter Wonderland set & embossing with gold EP. I decided that I would put the tag on to a tag cut from a piece of dark green core’dinations, so I cut it down slightly.
The owls are from the Fat Robin stamp set, I die cut the cardstock after stamping, edged it with Bundled Sage & Evergreen Bough distress inks & layered it onto a piece of lilac coloured core’dinations.
I cut lots of flowers from core’dinations scraps & the same patterned paper I’d used for the tag, using a Crealies die, mixed & matched them & attached to the tag with brads. By the way, the large pearl brad in the centre of the ribbon is from Hobby House.
To finish I added lots of glitter & adhesive gems.
I’m sure the other members of the swap will have come up with great ideas for their X tag, but I’m happy with this & hopefully, the recipient won’t feel like I cheated.
Thanks for looking & once again, thank you for the very kind comments on my previous efforts. Until next time,
Love & light.
