Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas 2017

Loll has been hosting her 4th Annual "Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll and Friends", and today is the final day for this year.

I'm joining this fun event this year for the first time.
I was away from home earlier this month, but I'm glad I was able to submit my tag before the event is over!

I used the tissue paper technique I learned at the CAS Mix Up Challenge in July.
The tissue paper was colored with distress inks and then scrunched up. I pasted it on white cardstock, die-cut it, and heat-embossed it with glitter powder. Finally I glued the heat-embossed sentiment banner to the tag and popped up the die-cut deer.

It's a very simple tag, but I like it!

Thanks for checking in!

  1. So many wonderful techniques on this tag, Hideko. The ombre background is a mix of beautiful shades of blue and purple. Adding the iridescent embossing to the scrunch tissue paper adds to much beautiful sparkle. Love the addition of your beautiful white deer leaping over the vellum banner. Gorgeous design!
