I have been enjoying following along with the 25 Tags of Christmas! It’s been a busy time in life and I wasn’t sure I was going to get to play along. But I’m excited to be making time for stamping again and it’s Day 17 – so I’ve still got time to play! I’ve been so inspired each day as I look at all the tags that so many talented stampers have created.
A few days ago, I saw a post somewhere (and I feel bad I can’t remember where!) that talked about making a Christmas card out of a stamp set that wasn’t even Christmas themed. I wanted to make that a challenge for myself. Since I don’t have a Christmas set by Avery Elle, and that is the sponsor for day 17, I grabbed my “Petals and Stems” set by AE and created a Christmas tag with it! Here it is
Those stems and leaves and berries totally look like Christmas when stamped in the red and green! I was inspired by the tag by Kim Heggins today. I liked how the snowflakes hung off the sides of the tag – so I did that with the stems and berries. I also loved the glitter paper on the bottom, so I added some to the top. I also included bakers twine.
The sentiment is from the Fa la la stamp set by Simon Says stamp and I also added a few clear sequins (but you can hardly see those!)
I hope to play along some more! Maybe even everyday for this last week of the event.
Thanks for stopping by!
