12 Tags of Christmas - Day Seven

Welcome to Day Eight's card! The tag that Tim created for Day Eight made me go out and purchase stamp set and Glassine paper!! He made me do it...honestly. *smile*

Today's tag was easy to create but included a very fun technique using the Glassine kraft paper. See Tim's post on how to use this very cool paper here. I never would have purchased it, not knowing what to really do with it, until I saw his video. And here's another fun tip...On the Day Eight tag Tim used a holly leave die to cut out his leaves. I don't owe the die so guess what? I just hand cut the leaves! Holly leaves are fairly easy to cut by hand so that's what I did for today's card...just use what you have while you can!!)

The leaves were created using the Glassine paper and then I simply added some branches, ribbon, sparkly stuff, and holly berries (pearl embellies that I colored with my Copic markers). The background of the card was aged with Distress Inks and the sentiment was embossed in black. Pretty easy today...Be sure to check back over the weekend for Day Eight's tag...it's my favorite so far!! And be sure to join the entire Sweet 'n Sassy team tomorrow for the Cocoa Blog Hop! Lots of prizes involved so don't miss out!

Enjoy!
