It is also the 6th day of my 12 Days of Christmas Sale, so let's get on with our latest challenge so you can see today's deal!
Oh, man, was a biiiiiiit nervous when I sat down to think this one out since I had been out of the craft room for so long. I was coming off a loooong week of taking care of my hubs and his brand new cyborg hip, and I had almost no motivation to craft at the moment, let alone make something with Barn Red. I decided to use the houndstooth pattern from the retired Dakota Paper Packet. All of a sudden, while I pieced together Kraft CS and some embellies, I noticed the zip strip from the paper edge...and the rest is history!
I have no idea why it is so hard to edit Kraft CS...so bear with me. Not only was I back in the crafting saddle again, but Santa was back in HIS too! I LOVE THIS!!!! The tag shape itself is found on the Cricut Artiste Collection. I used several different Close to My Heart products to pull this tag together with a western theme. Some are retired, unfortunately, but others soon will be too! This white hemp I tied at the top around a mini clothes pin will be going soon. I added just a bit of the silver washi on the clip that I had colored with the silver marker.
I used my favorite stamp from the Santa Clause My Acrylix to make the sleigh and reindeer in Barn Red. I layered the zip strip, silver washi tape, Licorice Opaques, and retired Milepost Shapes Star underneath the image.
I love the distressed look of using our silver marker on the star! :) How about you?
