Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight on Tags


Over at Crafty Cardmakers we have a new spotlight on tags. We all need a tag to go with a gift and it is so much more special to give a handmade one than a shop bought one, especially if you have also given a handmade card.

My tag is quite large at 12cm square and is made using a digi stamp from our sponsor Prairie Fairy Designs called Decorating The Tree. I just love the cute fluffy slippers, just like mine except mine unfortunately don't have glitter on them (unless I've had an accident with the Glamour Dust of course LOL)

The layout of the tag follows sketch #51 at Papertake Weekly. The image is coloured with Promarkers with Sakura clear glitter pen added to the baubles and parcel ribbon, Gold Stickles on the star and Star Dust on the fur trim. I cut the image layer and the gold mat with a Nellie Snellen die. I added a similar corner to the snowflake paper and matted all these layers onto the base paper which has been edged with a metallic gold pen. The papers are DCWV and the ribbons and eyelet are from my stash.

Please pop over to the blog at Crafty Cardmakers to see the gorgeous tags the DT have entered and give them some love. We'd love to see your entries for this challenge and I look forward to visiting your blogs.

I would like to enter this tag into the following challenges :-
