Well, 2 posts in one day, thats not usual! As i was having a look around my blog list i noticed that Winter Wonderlands new challenge is to make a Christmas tag. I couldnt resist so the ironing pile has been dumped back into the cupboard and out came the craft mat! If i keep doing that we will actually have nothing to wear!
Tags is something i never have really been into so i kept it quite simple. I cut the tag using my Cricut with the Plantin schoolbook cartridge. The "Merry Christmas" was cut using my Cricut wild card cartridge and the snowflake from the potpourri basket cartridge. I embossed the white top layer with the cuttlebug snowflakes folder. The sentiment and snowflake are coated with Glossy Accents and MS glitter, i use these two products all the time, couldnt do without them! I layered up the snowflake to add some depth. The little charm was given to me from my friend and it is actually from last years Christmas crackers!! As my kids keep telling me.. Re-use and Recycle! It is also just made from scraps of cardstock that i keep. I hate to waste anything these days! The challenge at Creative Inspirations is "recycle" so will enter into that challenge too!
Here is the links the the Challenge Blogs i have entered;
