This couldn't be more simple (pinched the idea from the gorgeous Miss Kim) just small squares of pp, inked and placed on the card, I kept the embellies pretty simple, metal tags I have had forever, pieces of snowflake ribbon from http://www.craftqueen.com.au/index.php and small white Kaiser flowers that I spent an insane amout of time inking, totally forgetting that I already had some in the right colour d'oh!.
Next up I used my cuttlebug (used it quite a few times), got the idea for this off the net, for the life of me can't remember where, but thanks. Ribbon again from Craft Queen and Santa image from the Graphics Fairy http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com.au/ she has some amazing Xmas images there.
http://www.my2angels.net/s/71/Christmas-Cards.html a bit fidly cutting out the little presents from the pp, but the end effect was worth it.
Made some lovely (well I think they are) tags, using lots of technique, first up a really gorgeous Darkroom Door Stamp over Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Peeled Painted and Fired Brick, added Holly Leaf Ribbon from Craft Queen and some lace as well as a Bo Bunny Brad.
After Miss Mary told me about this technique she saw, doing the Creative Jump Start Summit at Nathalie Kalbachs' blog http://nathaliesstudio.com/tutorials/creative-jump-start-summit-2012/ I had to enrol (free) and see, now I can't remember which talented lady it was that did this but the idea wasn't really for making tags as such, it was a warm up exercise to help kick start the creative process, but I soooo loved it that I knew I wanted to use it as a technique.
So what do you do, easy peasy, get a sheet of plastic, acrylic, nothing absorbent, spray onto it glimmer mist in whatever colours you like at the time, here I used Santa Baby and Key Lime Green, spritz with a bit of water and then just slap your tag across the puddles of colour, and you end up with something a bit like this.
Once it's dry spray with a bit more glimer, stamp, run through the cuttlebug and add some embellies and voila, a very unique Xmas tag.
Well that's it for now, if you still have some of your Chrissy stuff out why not think about giving yourself a really good head start to your Xmas Cards, it is so much more fun if you aren't pushing a deadline plus there is the knowledge that you have one xmas thing ticked off the list.
Hugs and love Annette xo
