Merry & Bright

Ellen Hutson's CLASSroom is having its annual 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist, and after seeing Jennifer McGuire's tag, I was inspired!  I have had this coppery glittered reindeer for ages, recycled from a Christmas card years and years ago........and now was the time to use it!

I tied some gold jingle bells around its neck with teal embroidery thread, giving this tag a fun aspect of sound when it's moved, and stamped a background (The Craft's Meow Christmas Lantern, retired) in embossed gold, adding some gold sequins for more glitz.  I loved Jennifer's color choices, so I followed suit, using bright pink and aqua glitter cardstock.


I love using glitter cardstock, but I always forget the fits it gives me trying to get a good photograph of it!  

Be sure to visit the CLASSroom for lots of wonderful inspiration - there'll be a new tag every day from Dec. 1 - 12!
