Can you feel it!? Denise certainly is! The most wonderful time of the years is near! See how Denise is helping out Santa get this presents perfectly wrapped this year!
Last week, I shared with you how I took some Carta Bella paper from the Paris Girl collection and made some Christmas tags with it. This week, I thought I would do that again, but this time with some Carta Bella Alphabet Junction paper.
I started with some plain old shipping tags and applied some spray inks in shades of red and pink. I then flicked some droplets of water on them so that the dye in the ink would react. While I let those dry out completely, I got to using my eBosser to cut away. I used Papertrey Ink Damask Snowflake dies to cut the pink and red dot paper from Alphabet Junction. Then I also cut that pale green paper using PTI Limitless Layers dies. The cream circle is 1 3/4” so that it coordinates with their Holiday Tag stamp line. The snowflake stamp was stamped in a pink dye and then the sentiment in black on top.
I decided to place my layered snowflakes along the bottom of the tag so that there would be plenty of room to write the “To” and “From” on the top. I also decided to add a couple of pearlized pins that were colored with a matching Copic marker by inserting them into the foam adhesive in the layered snowflake.
It really is amazing how some patterned paper that was not designed for Christmas can inspire a Christmas project!
Thank you Denise!
