I couldn’t resist the new Stitched Dress Up Tags from the Diecember release any longer! This tag was the perfect accompaniment to a quick Holiday gift bag I made. To start the tag I dug through my left over backgrounds to see if I had anything suitable – when I make a project I will often make more than one background and pick my favorite to use and pop the others into a big basket for another day. Every now and then I rummage through to see what I can use. Believe it or not, the background for this tag was left over from a card back in April 2014 – me a hoarder?!! Or should that be that I like to use all my scraps and left overs if possible :D
Looking back I blended Broken China and Evergreen Bough on white card before pressing Versamark ink through the Falling Snow stencil and then heat embossing with Judikins iridescent sparkle embossing powder. Having die cut the Stitched Dress Up Tags from this background I accented it with white enamel accents for snow and a hole reinforcer coated in Rock Candy Distress Glitter.
The kitty is from Christmas Cats stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, cut out with the matching dies and Copic colored. He’s placed on a Stitched Slope and Hill which was also trimmed with the tag die so that it all lined up :D
The sentiment is a combination of the Snow word die layered up several times and completed with a partial sentiment from Winter Friends which was white heat embossed on a scrap of card colored with the same red Copics I used on the scarf.
The bag is constructed from scored and folded Fog card and then I added a panel of Fog card cut with the Stitched Whirl Background to the front. I tied the tag to the bag with Lawn Fawn twine and accented with sequins.
I’m going to pop a few handmade cards in this bag as part of the gift my son will give his teacher :D
