Waltzingmouse blog waltz - Winter/Christmas

Welcome to this months waltz!


The theme this month is winter/Christmas, and what better set to use than the ever versatile teeny trees. I remembered seeing someone on the gallery use the teeny tree trunks to make a snowflake shape and I knew thats what I wanted to do. As I'm a little short of time at the moment I decided to combine a few challenges, and also to keep it simple. I decided to do a kraft tag with white embossed stamping.
Its all pretty self explanatory, I used the smallest of the tree trunks, but all of them would make a snowflake shape. I used versamark to stamp with, and white Wow embossing powder. To finish it off I used some antique linen distress ink around the edges and some gingham ribbon!

  11. A tag doesn't need tons of layers and embellishments to be great, and your tag today proves it! It is so striking with the white on kraft combination. The snowflakes scream holiday time and I love the bright white embossing. Very pretty and something I think I am going to CASE.
