Christmas Tags... 39

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, December 16, 2012 @ 12:58 AM | , , , , , ,

Hello! Hope you are all having a great weekend! It's been raining cats and dogs here in Phoenix. Although the desert is in much need of rain, I personally still prefer blue sunny skies and so do my little four legged furry friends who don't care to get their paws wet!

I had some time to get crafty last night so I made a few gift tags that will come in handy as I am putting the finishing touches on a few gifts :) I combined fun patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Citysidewalks collection with various Die-namics dies and MFT stamps.
I stamped the smaller die cut tag that was made using Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX with the "To" and "From" sentiments from MFT Christmas Ornaments then attached to the main tag using MFT Hemp Cord and a MFT Kraft button.
Both tags are very similar with the exception of the patterned paper and the die cut doily that is layered behind the chipboard Christmas tree.
For the tree embellishment, I started with a "naked" chipboard Christmas tree, painted it with gesso, spritzed with heidi swapp Chartreuse Color shine then finished it with a layer of  glitter. 
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the deconstructed Sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
