Yuletide Blessings

It’s Christmas Eve, blog visitors!  If you haven’t got everything done by now, it’s too late.  So relax, open a bottle of wine, or make a cuppa & just B R E A T H E………

I’ve got a tag to show you tonight.  It’s my ‘Y’ tag for the Chocolate Baroque Alpha Tag Swap.  As with my ‘X’ tag, I faffed around for ages, not knowing what to do.  Then I remembered the Yule log that was the first decoration my mum put out every Christmas.

I cut two size 8 tags from core’dinatons card, stamped one with a Chocolate Baroque snowflake stamp & dry embossed the other with a wood grain embossing folder.  I swiped Gathered Twigs distress ink over the raised areas of the green tag & trimmed it slightly.

I stamped the holly leaves from CB’s retired Winter Wonderland stamp set with Versamark onto a dark green core’dinations scrap & embossed with gold EP.

The glassine cones & leaves were cut from the Tim Holtz die & coloured with Gathered Twigs, Rusty Hinge & Aged Mahogany DIs.

I edged the cones with Picket Fence Distress Stickles.

The candle was from a grab bag of CB stamps, I embossed it with gold EP, cut it out & coloured it with Promarkers.

I’m quite happy with this tag, but I wish I’d remembered to spritz it with PP Heirloom Gold mist before I sent it off.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  I’m taking tomorrow off, so I would like to wish you a VERY happy Christmas.  Until next time,

Love & light

  • This is a super way of bringing the Yule Log into a tag – love that texture & your way of giving it a surrounding mat. Love the candy cane twine & ribbon – thanks for reminding me I’d not put the choccy candy canes out; better late than never 5.25pm Christmas Day!!
    Much love
