Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event is still running right now, and I have to confess... I have been having so much fun playing along!
I remember gift tags were always something I loved as a child. They're the real focal point of a gift when you can't (or aren't allowed) to open it up there and then.
I used to keep hold of the tags I really loved, and although I honestly don't know what happened to them after a few days... (I suspect my mother threw them away)... it's a memory that has always stayed with me.
Maybe that's why I'm so fond of making them?
The tag I've made to show you all today ties in to Day 8 of the event.
It's a real 'girly, girly' tag, isn't it? Probably best suited to a young girl... or a young girl at heart :)
EK Success 'Christmas Tree'
Carl/CarlaCraft 'Flower Pot'

Mini Wooden Peg
I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but the smaller stars were attached to the embossed under layer of this double tag. It just adds to the dimension a little and breaks up the focus so it's not so 'crowded'...
And as for this embossing folder... I just adore it. It's been specifically made for use with acetate and gesso.
Just before you take a peek at the tag I used for inspiration this time around, I will state as I did for my last acetate tag (just in case you haven't read that post) that I have punched out an additional tree shape and glued it behind so that you have somewhere to write on.
Here's a picture of the tag I used for inspiration...
It has a lovely 'homespun' feeling to it, don't you think?
Challenges I'm entering...
(As the Acetate and Green, Kraft and Silver Card are all from snippets)
There are a few days left if you are hoping to play along...
'Bye for now...
