DT project for MTTC no 397 TAG you are it theme

Elegant Christmas tag for my husband



DT project for My Time To Craft #397 with a tag theme
Link: https://mytimetocraftchallenge.blogspot.com/2019/05/challenge-397-tag-youre-it.html


this stunning tag could also be saved until January for our 24th anniversary! Since we got married in winter and about a month after Christmas, I've used before the deer image and play on word(s) of "I love you dear" or "I love you dearly". He loves humor and to tease, so it's a very subtle way for me to insert some creative humor.

Some supplies and vendor details:
a. coppery gold textured paper = Paper Wishes (I've hoarded this beauty for about 10 years!)
b. butterscotch marbled cardstock = Colorbok
c. black and white zebra-like patterned paper and the 2 deer Christmas stickers = The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby
d. buttery yellow and white chevron striped cardstock = My Mind's Eye/American Crafts
e. 3 washi tapes = Pen + Gear purchased at Wal-Mart

Other blogs or groups that I'll link-up this stunning tag to=

a. Facebook group = "Paper, Paper, Paper & DT Calls"

b. The 12 Months of Christmas Link-Up Challenge blog = optional theme Creature Feature

c. Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog = Anything But Square Card theme

d. Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog = May kit reveal (the foil, marbled CS, and yellow and white chevron CS are in my May CKC mini kits that I put together)

e. Facebook group = "100 Pattern Paper Challenge" because the black and white paper was one that I had in my 2019 starter kit (encourages you to use at least 100 papers per year)

I just LOVE how this tag came together! And I guess I shouldn't make you all jealous by telling that the Christmas stickers from The Paper Studio were bought for 20 cents!!! I was shopping in Hobby Lobby about 3 days before Christmas and found these on an endcap marked clearance, so I snagged 2 packs. This is my first project using the gold and black color theme stickers!!

    1. Thanks, Cindy! I wish I had more Christmas cards made, but generally I don't start until July. I also like to do harvest/Thanksgiving cards too for my elderly relatives but haven't made any yet so that's something I need to get started soon, too. Thanks for stopping in!
