Tag 1

So I decided to make the tag from day 1 instead today.  I didn't have the rickety house die so I downloaded a Maya Road template and cut that out of chipboard.  I didn't have the texture fade so I added texture by using molding paste and heating it till it went lumpy bumpy.  I didn't have the on the edge picket fence die (are we seeing a pattern here?!) so I downloaded a fence pattern from the internet and hand cut that out of grungeboard.  After all this I noticed the house template was rather large.  Too large for a tag, or even a card, so it has become a wall hanging!
I used my trusty Maya Road branch from day 3 for my tree, and the background is paper from the K&Co Winter Wonderland stack. I couldn't find anything to make a wreath so I used a metal embellishment from my stash that fit the bill.  I decided to decorate inside the window by using some paper that looked like wallpaper, stamping a christmas tree on it then decorating the tree with adhesive gems and a star so it looks like there is a decorated tree inside the window.  I used fun flock and mica powder for the snow.  For some reason I can't find my white glitter.
If you want to look at everyone's interpretations of the tags and post yours for us all to share, pop over to Arty Jen blog and join in.
