Greetings, Stampers! This week at The Paper Players, the sweet and wonderful Laurie is our hostess and she has an awesome sketch for our inspiration. I love a tag on a card! I had an idea right away, though my card kind of morphed a bit. Let's just say I used some creative license!
I started with a tag die from Clearly Besotted, and then searched for some images that would fit nicely. I chose this Color Layering Wreath from Hero Arts. The tag was a little too big for the landscape orientation so I made my card in portrait instead. The second tag beneath was cut from gold glimmer paper and the banner from vellum. I wanted to keep my background white but it looked a bit too plain so I added some texture with a stencil and some embossing paste. I'm pretty pleased with the end result.
I also made a second stand-alone tag so that I could play along with Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags challenge. They are already up to day 20; where have I been?! I've wanted to play since day one and time is passing just too quickly. I hope to squeeze in one more before it's over. I was inspired by Tracey's tag with its green wreath and red bow, and also Lucy's tag with its layer of gold glimmer beneath, both on day 13. Check out their Pinterest board; it's pretty awesome!
