25 Days of Christmas Tags - Tag 1 & DD #28 Take Two

It is that time of the year again, and this year I am starting a bit earlier than last year with my 25 Days of Christmas Tags posts.  Each day for the next 25 days I will be posting a new Christmas tag.  This is partly for me, because I know if I say I am going to make my tags I'll be doing it at 2:00 in the morning Christmas Eve.  So this is my motivator and also I hope that it inspires you to see something new and maybe to motivate you.  So here is Tag #1 which is also using this week's Dynamic Duos colours.  I picked up this washi tape at Michael's last week and the colours match the challenge perfectly.  I love this match so much I made a second card for Dynamic Duos too.









All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  Pure Poppy, Fine Linen
Patterned paper: Fine Linen Patterned Paper Pack
Stamps: 2010 Holiday Tags  Peace,Love & Joy
Ink:  Classic Kraft
other: red washi tape, foam dots, jute
