25 Days of Christmas Tags '13 - Day 16



Welcome back to Day 16 of 25 Tags for Christmas.

Today Cathy Weber of Empty Nest Crafter, is joining me as my guest. Cathy`s blog was among one of the first that I started following and she always amazes me with some of her home decor projects.  The kind you look at and wonder how she ever thought to do something so brilliant.  If you haven`t before you should go and look through her blog and while you are there leave her some love for this really cute tag which is now on my to do list.




For my tag today I created a dimensional tag using Lil`Inker`s Cover Up Die: Christmas and the Stitched Circle dies.  When you sign the back of the tag you could also date it and then the recipient could use it as a tree ornament.

Love both tags! Cathy's is really cute. Love the idea of dividing the space into squares and using tiny images and die cuts in each.

Wow....your tags is wonderful. Love the effect of being able to see inside past your die cut words. Love the bright, clean red and white colors.
