Festive Tag

Oh that big day is getting closer and closer and once again the weather is teasing us with the prospect of a white one.   All those last minute preparations should be all that remains now and soon it will be safe to go out to the shops again!

Popped the last present into the post yesterday wrapped in hand decorated paper and topped with this tag.

Glossy card run through the Big Shot in a cuttlebug folder and then trimmed.   Two parts of the embossed card were coloured with Kaleidacolor inks on a brayer and then stuck back to back.   The narrowest strip with the word noel dragged across the green ink on the pad.   The snowflake strip touched with glue pen and dipped into glitter.  The three tags held together with a brad.

Here is the tag on the package as it went into the post.   Christmas sorted well apart from making sure I have enough Beans for my feast of beans on toast next week.

I'm sharing this tag with Try it on Tuesday who are looking this week for our festive tags.   Anything goes Challenge have an anything goes fortnight with the option of Christmas tags.   Crazy Amigo's are looking for embossing.   Shopping our stash suggest we make a tag or incorporate one in our project.
