Merry & Bright Pink Christmas Tag

There's lots of die cuts on this card. My tag consists of a white layer of cardstock and an acetate layer cut from the stitched tag die. Then I have cut the Merry & Bright die out of pink mirror cardstock. I found a square die that is nearly a perfect fit for the Merry & Bright word box so I used that to cut out the centre of the white tag.

I added the acetate layer behind the white layer originally as I was planning to make a shaker tag but was looking at the white sparkle card stock I had and it looked absolutely fantastic behind the tag so I added that instead. So in this instance the acetate is purely cosmetic and just too fiddly to remove.

I then cut a tag circle out of the pink mirror cardstock for the top of the tag and attached at the top of the tag. I have some fine silver threads and grabbed about 4 or 5 pieces that I twisted together fed through, looped then just played down the tag. I decided to add this soft pink vellum to the front of the card and there was only enough fro the front of the card. So I secured where it would be hidden by the placement of the tag. After attaching the tag I decided it needed something else and added the silver die cut snowflake.

Enough die cuts????

Perfect for the Simon Says Challenge I think

Thank you so much for coming to have a look and I hope you come again soon.

Oh, Alieen. Wonderful tag. Very delicate and I love its pink color. Everything is so nicely together composed, that is breathtaking. For me, the tag is a tough subject, I would not advise doing well in this topic, but you are in this great.

Wonderful combination of dies Aileen and it's funny how a card grows isn't it and the design changes sometimes as it comes together.
Thanks for sharing,
