I wanted to share some pictures of one of the Christmas tags that I made this year. I was quite pleased with the way it turned out and the people who received parcels with one of these tags were delighted with them.
I used a Sizzix framelit to cut the tag base and then hand trimmed some patterned paper for the background layer. I cut the white wicker basket from a piece of 110 lb Neenah Solar White cardstock using a Marianne Design Craftable - Basket and Blooms. I hand cut a Neenah Desert Storm background for the basket to fill in the gaps in the wicker. I die cut the poinsettias using Simon Says Stamp's Poinsettia Parade and arranged them so that they looked as though they were filling the basket. I filled the centres of the flowers with tiny golden seed beads. The bow was tied with some narrow gold wired ribbon. I attached the finished basket to the tag using a double layer of mounting tape under the lower portion and a couple of rolled glue dots under the handle. The sentiment was stamped with an Impression Obsession rubber stamp using Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black. Here is a close up showing the dimension of the tag.
I am entering this tag in the "Anything Goes" Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year full of happiness, good health and prosperity.
Until next time,
