Christmas Tag idea


this is just a little something that occurred to me as i was looking at the link for the SU Holiday Mini... (its online now for demo's) nope, I'm not one, but there was someone who knew someone who was and she posted it on the message board the other day...
anyways one of the sets that really interests me is the one for making the gift tags, and my fav stamp in the set is the one with the leaf pod branch across the top corner... So... (since i have spent quite a bit of time organizing my stamps images reminder book and putting together a small binder of the su sets by alphabetical stamp name together this last week) I decided that A) although i don't have "too many" stamps, I do have a lot, and not all of them have ever been used, its probably closer to less then half of them have been used... so.. this is an attempt to create something from what i have on hand.
the Frame stamp (Fred mullet) is stamped in satin red versafine on mellow moss cardstock then punched with the (lavendar size) Marvy sq. the berry pod is same color ink and the green branch is stamped with Olympian Green Versafine. (both of these stamps are in the Peaceful Wishes set) the To:From: is from an older set and I will check the binder later to look up the set name. Its layered to a piece of River Rock cardstock, the Vintage trim is an estate sale find from last summer. and the folded Cranberry Crisp cs measures 3X3 when folded. tfl.

I love the look of this tag, Stacy.

Makes me want to dig out my stamps and get creative on this one. I already have 50 Christmas cards ready for non papercrafter/family members. I need to get really creative for my papercrafter friends........maybe I could adapt this idea for a card front....Hmmmmm
