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
