25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hey Everyone!

I'm excited to be participating in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags once again.

This is an event that Tracey McNeely hosts each year.  There are lots of prizes involved, so you definitely want to check out her blog and get all the details.

Today Neat & Tangled is being featured, and several DT members have prepared tags.

Mine showcases the Doily Tag die and the new Scandinavian Prints Christmas Dies.

I love how the doily die frames the central element.

I created a background for the focal point using some patterned papers as well as a bit of actual doily, adding some stitching for texture.

Then the trees were added, the center one is popped up for some extra dimension.

I cut one of the little banners from the Scalloped die set and used a sentiment from Winter Wishes.  The right pennant part was trimmed off and then it was popped up with some foam tape.

I really love creating tags and enjoy this feature from Tracey.  I haven't quite decided if I'll leave this one a tag, or add it as the focal point for a card, but really, it came together so quickly I'm thinking I might just make another so I can have both.

OK, be sure to head over to Tracey's blog to get all the details about how to play along with the challenge as well as enter to win some prizes.

Have a great Monday!
