This week the Humbuggers are calling for Christmas stockings. I decided to pull out my Christmas Lace cartridge for only the second time. I was so excited about this cart until I saw that the backing for the lace designs weren't shadows, but only a backing for the cut outs, and in some cases I found it difficult to even tell what some of the images were. That's sort of how I felt about the Christmas stocking. Awfully skinny, if you ask me, so I grabbed Christmas Cheer and played around in Design Studio to skew one of the stockings enough to be sort of a shadow and cut the scrolly part out of the center. I then skewed the shadow of that stocking for a backing. It was so large, that unless I wanted to make a 6x9" card I needed to think of something else so I decided to use it as an over sized tag. Large presents look sort of ridiculous with teeny tiny tags, so there you go.
I glued the embossed solid tag to the shadow, cut teeny red foam pieces to pop the lacy bit and added adhesive beads to embellish. The hanging tag is cut from George and "For You", computer generated. I think it turned out pretty elegant, don't you? Be sure to stop by B!H! to see the fab inspiration and read the post for this challenge. It's a hoot! Max is BACK! HeeHee! I also found a fairly new Christmas challenge blog which runs their challenges monthly (for all you guys that can't handle Christmas once a week (LOL). The April challenge for the Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge is Ribbons and Gems so I'm entering my tag there as well. go check them out.
