After cleaning the apartment today, I
Finally I just went back to my desk and stared at my supplies, willing something to form in my brain. And form it did! I don't normally do tags...they aren't my focus and I never know what to do with them once they are finished...but I really wanted to try. And what better image to use than my beloved Saturated Canary?? :)
So I chose Jules! Just love this image with the cute little kitty tucked in her arms and that big swirly hair! So adorable.
I dug into my stash and found this absolutely gorgeous snowflake paper that I have had for oh-so-long..I think I loved it so much I never wanted it to get used up :)
I decided to stick with a blue/white/silver theme with just a few touches of red to bring in some holiday spirit. I found a few small scraps of glitter paper in the bottom of my cardstock folders and used those as backdrop panels. The silver mesh I picked up at the dollar store the other day and I absolutely love it! Took me a little bit to figure out how to adhere it to the tag...not used to using things that I can't put double sided tape on:)
I layered on top of the mesh a strip of swirly ribbon.
The snowflake frame is a gorgeous image I found online and I turned it into a cut file for my Cameo, and it cut out beautifully!! I was so happy when it turned out. I was a little afraid, there are some really tiny cuts in there, but they weren't a problem at all! My skills with the Cameo are improving!! Yay :)
I colored Jules in with my colored pencils and added some red stickles to her spots and stripes. Then I added a large bow and put a plastic snowflake in the middle (also a dollar store find!).
The final touch was punching the hole at the top, adding the ribbon and covering up the staple with another plastic snowflake.
I just love the way this tag turned out. It's so sparkly and really has that snowy winter feel to it. And it's just gorgeous :)
