2011 Holiday Tags

It's the final day of the Papertrey Ink October Countdown, which also means that today is the second Design Team Group Post day too. Our assignment this time around is to create a tag and card, using a combination of the 2011 Holiday Tags stamp set with the Wonderful Word: Holiday stamp set and dies.

Here's what I came up with...Using the same images and dies, I was able to create a coordinating card and wine tag set.It all started with this layout. The joy tag circle (from 2011 Holiday Tags) stamped in Aqua Mist onto a white cardstock base. Then I added "& Love" and "Be With You" (from Wonderful Words: Holiday stamp set) stamped in True Black. Die cut an attached "Peace" to finish off the phrase and then embellished with a ribbon bow.Utilizing the same design I created a tag, using the Tag Sale 5 die which I attached to a die cut Soft Stone Wine Bottle Tag.Finished the tag off with a die cut bow (from Bells & Boughs), a Harvest Gold button and some white twine.Before I finish, I wanted to share with you how this same design can easily be adapted into a regular gift tag as well. Just attach a length of twine or ribbon through the top of the tag before adhering the die cut Bells & Boughs bow.

Now, I know you what to see more! So, be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the team has come up with for you today...

Thanks for stopping by!
