Today a few of the Altenew Design Team are joining Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags.
We are so excited to kick-off the Christmas season, and this is one of the best ways to get into the festive season.
I love Christmas and all the cozy and happy feelings it evokes. So, i pulled my Altenew supplies and decided to create a large tag that brings that festive feeling to the season.
I started with a 5.5"x3.25" white tag as a base, and first used the Layered Snowflake Stars Cover Die A to cut a panel from brown metallic paper.
The panel was glued to the tag, but i carefully reconstructed the snowflake look of the design by gluing some of the negative pieces back on the panel.
I used the Altenew Layered Snowflake die to cut a few of stars from white and brown metallic paper. These were glued together with a bit of dimensional adhesive to create the large snowflakes, i made sure to alternate the color of the snowflake layer as i build them up. I used the smallest die from the set to cut two of the snowflakes from white cardstock and glued them together. Once they were set on the tag, i added a small crystal to the center of each snowflake.
I used the Altenew Fine Alphabet Die to cut the word JOY three times from white cardstock. These were stacked together to create a dimensional look to the sentiment of the tag.
All that was left to do was thread some ribbon to complete my tag. I love how this came together, and its classical and elegant look. Remember to stop by Altenew to check all the materials used in this tag.
I hope this has inspired you to get into the Christmas season! Don't forget to stop by Tracey's blog to see all the participants and all the companies that will be sharing inspiration in the next few days!
