Hello everyone! Have you been playing along with Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas tags this year? I have created a few tags so far, but today I'm sharing a tag that I created as a member of the A Jillian Vance Design design team. Today is Wednesday and that means usually I post a project over on the AJVD blog and give you a sneak peek here on my blog. But today I'm sharing my tag (and a bonus tag) here on the blog. You can still head over to the AJVD blog to see what the other design team members created. I will be posting my usually Wednesday project tomorrow on Thursday.
I went a little rustic and a little elegant for my tag. I die cut the tag from white cardstock using the Minnie Pearl Tag die set. I then cut the Rustic Wood Slice from kraft cardstock and adhered just a portion of it to my tag, trimming off the excess. I used the Fresh Cut Pine dies to cut my pine branches from white glitter cardstock and the pine cones from brown glitter cardstock. I adhered these to the tag with Just Glue It adhesive. I tied a bow from rustic twine and adhered that to the tag with Just Glue It adhesive, as well. The sentiment is from the Just BeCLAUS stamp set on kraft cardstock that I had die cut with one of the strip dies from the Sentiment Strips 2.0 die set with VersaFine CLAIR Acorn ink. I trimmed the sentiment down and adhered it to the tag. Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of Christmas.
Now for my bonus tag. This one was super quick to put together. I got the idea from a card that I saw in a video I watched the other day. The card featured a deer die cut from white cardstock and then just the antlers die cut from gold glitter cardstock and adhered to the deer. I loved the look of the white and gold together. I used some very old Christmas paper called Santa's List (it is almost gone now!) and die cut some pieces using the Rustic Wood Slice die. I was going to use the die cuts that way, but really didn't like how it looked. So I die cut the wood slices down with one of the new Stitched Dot In and Out circle dies. I adhered the two circle together to give the tag a little more substance. I punched a hole in the top with a punch and threaded through gold tinsel trim. The antlers were adhered to my Stately Stag die cut from white cardstock and then adhered to the tag with foam tape. I die cut a sentiment strip using the Sentiment Strips 2.0 die set using coordinating patterned paper and then heat embossed the sentiment from the Just BeCLAUS stamp set using WOW embossing powder in gold. The sentiment was trimmed down and adhered with Just Glue It Adhesive.
