Today I designed a Christmas tag that I think will look great on a masculine Christmas gift. (I know the tag looks crooked in the picture but I chose the photo that shows the details on the tag best -- the tag is not crooked.) I used the new ECD Tags & More 9 Sparkle dies for the tag. I used some of the die cut circles from this tag to create an embossed background (glued the die cut dots to tag). At the top of the tag I added some of the Garden Notes Whitepine Bough & Pine Cone die cuts. The sentiment is one of The Way With Words sentiments by Quietfire.
I used Susan's CountryScapes Critters 3 dies for the Deer, and a branch from the CountryScapes Woods 1 die set. You can see the deer die cut on the left, and the branch I used for antlers for the deer is the one on the bottom right. I thought it would be fun to create a buck since I could use one of the branches for his rack. Just another way to great creative with the CountryScape dies!!!!
The tree was created using 4 die cut layers of the CountryScape Woods 1 die. Along the bottom I cut card stock to create "grounding" for both the tree and the deer.
I receive a lot of requests asking about the card stock I use for my flowers and other die cuts. I purchase the above pictured card stock from WalMart and use it for probably 90% of my die cuts. It shapes very well, especially for flowers/leaves. I like to color most of my die cuts with either Susan's Pan Pastels or Distress Inks, so that is why I use white card stock. The cost is less than $6.
