Crazy Card Party~ Christmas Tag

This week at Crazy Card Party, Patricia is asking to see Christmas tags. Perfect timing since we all just made tags for Rosanne's annual tag swap. I was honoured to be asked to participate this year, my first time joining in. It was very stressful since I know these ladies really pull out all the stops on their tags!

I pulled out all my favourite things...vellum, gold, embossing, burlap!

The bottom layer is PTI cream cardstock. On the back I stamped "to" and "from" with a Mama Elephant set. The next layer is Stampin Up gold vellum. Then a smaller burlap tag, topped with a tiny kraft tag stamped with a PTI "joy" stamp. I got out my Peaceful Pine cones set and stamped the branch and embossed the pine cone with Martha Stewart "copper penny" powder.   Some bells, seam binding, gold thread and hemp cord finished it off.  I purposely left the different layers "loose" so that it had movement and the sheer part of the vellum could really show through. 

Then I made 19 more!


Thanks for a wonderful evening Rosanne and thanks for the gorgeous tags ladies!

Be sure to check out the tags made by the other Party-Ers!
