'Tis the Season Tag with Winter Frolic

Happy Bitten by the Bug 2 Monday! At long last we are back from our Thanksgiving break!  This week my very talented design team sister Lori Warner chose the weekly challenge cut. Lori chose "any Christmas tag from Winter Frolic cartridge".  I decided to use this pretty shaped tag and the 'Tis the Season (tree4) cuts from Winter Frolic.

I cut my base tag in two layers, a bright pink metallic cardstock, and the top, smaller layer in a white on white print from SEI.  I used heavy white sparkled cardstock and cut the snow for the bottom of the tag - under the dancing trees!

I used the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge and cut the circle and scalloped circle to/from tag.  I used three Close to My Heart stamps, all from the December 25th (C1469) set, to stamp the circle. 

I love the festive look of the dancing trees.  My daughter told me that she loves the fun, non-traditional colors used on this tag.  I finished the card by adding a green tulle bow to the top.

I found several colors of 6 inch tulle at Joann's and have enjoyed using the red and green through the holidays.  I also have black and white.  The black was great during Halloween.

I hope that you have a great Monday. I will be back tomorrow to share a quick vinyl project.
