I've done one more tag for Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas event. It closes tonight. If you saw my last tag which was totally out of my comfort zone in terms of colour, you'll know that I said my next tag would be blue and white. Sure enough, I'm back to my comfort zone!
I just bought the Sizzix Bigz Stacked Snowflake die and wanted to use it. The Bigz dies will go through thicker materials like chipboard so it was perfect for the glitter cs I used here (I've never been able to cut through it with a regular die).
I was inspired by Bonnie Klaas to stack a tag on top of a tag and by things I've seen recently using corrugated cardboard.
I die cut the larger tag out of a piece of mixed media cs I'd sprayed with a homemade blue spray. Then die cut the smaller tag out of a Tim Horton's corrugated coffee cup band. I brushed gesso over the smaller tag in random places.
The larger snowflake is the two middle-sized snowflakes dies stacked on top of each other. I added two of the smallest snowflakes at the top.
I stamped and heat embossed "let it snow" on a scrap of white cs and hand cut it into a banner tag. I used two shades of blue ribbon at the top and added a bunch of light blue gemstones.
In real life it is wonderfully sparkly but it so hard to capture that in the photo.
I'm also adding it to Happy Little Stamper's Mixed Media "tag" challenge (which doesn't have to be a Christmas tag) and Happy Little Stamper's Christmas "tag" challenge. Both of these are open for seven more days so come and join us!
