Tag You're It with Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Dear friends,

I have new Tag You're It Challenge #11 today.
This challenge's inspiration is this Maureen Merritt's gorgeous card.



Tracey McNeely asked Tag You're It Design Team to play along with her the 25 Days of Christmas Tags she has been hosting. As part of the team, I am play along using Maureen Merritt's tag card as the inspiration.


I love Maureen's tag card. Love the die cut background and layered tags. Inspired by these, here is my tag card.

Peace Love Joy 1

I have used the horizontal cover die from MFT to die cut my background panel. I then sponged some Fresh Peach ink from Simon Says Stamp on the negative strips from the diecut panel and popped it right back in place and glued the entire diecut down to the card front.

For the layered tags,  have used tags from MFT again which I die cut  twice from white cardstock.  I inked one tag completely with Mint Julep ink from Simon Says Stamp. On the second tag I have stamped the sentiment and layered the ornaments from Ornamental Style stamp set from Clearly Besotted.  I brushed Wink of Stella clear shimmer on he ornaments for the festive look on the Christmas card. I love the coral and mint colour combination. So trendy for a Christmas card.

Now I also made a coordinating tag as well

For the coordinating tag, I did exactly the same process except revered the colours. I coloured the layered tag with coral and the ornaments with mint.  You can see the shimmer on the ornament on this tag picture.

Here are the tag card and tag together.
