Muse CV 71

Muse Christmas Visions is joining up with Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags this week, and we are to make a tag with vellum.

One of the tags on the MuseCV post, had two layers of tags, one of vellum and both mounted on a small flat bag with some stripes on it.  I was inspired by the multiple layers.



I love this sweet flirty little deer from Hero Arts (H5457), I know it has antlers and so should be a he...but look at those eyelashes...  My middle layer is a piece of some scrumptious printed vellum from Stampin up.
My deer is stamped on Fog cardstock from Simon Says, and I've colored it with some pencils.  I had to add a gem for the nose...because..well Rudolph...and the tag needed a pop of color. The sentiment comes from CTMH- Short and Sweet Sentiments. The tag die is from Pretty Pink Posh, and I hand cut the slit for the ribbon.

I admit this will likely end up on the front of a card base before the season is over. We were not a family that ever tagged packages for the holidays. Too much shaking and squeezing...I am an only child so of course there were just the three of us. My Mother used two wrapping papers and one was for my Dad, and one for me.  My Dad used two different ribbon colors.  I used small stacks...sometimes the cat would create a surprise for us all, by moving one of my stacked gifts...but that made for funny moments.



Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. Yes, "she" is definitely a "she"! I have her too, and had kind of forgotten about her.....must go bring her out to play with. She's perfect for a tag!
    Loved reading about your Christmas memories! I was one of 3 sisters, so our presents were definitely in stacks! My parents did EVERYTHING on Christmas eve - put up the tree, wrapped the gifts, all after we were in bed!
