Paper Sweeties December Inspiration Challenge


Hello everybody!
It is the first of December and that means it is time for another

Here is our Inspiration photo:


It is perfect for this time of year!





I made a fun Christmas tag with our recently
released  Stitched Tags #3 Sweet Cuts.




I cut the stocking twice: one in cream for the cuff and toe of the stocking and one in Christmas plaid for the body of the stocking. I added gold Liquid Pearl dots around the edges of the cuff and toe.

Next, I die cut the word JOY with the older JOY Sweet Cut with red card stock 4 times. I glued these all together to make it nice and thick. This is a great trick for word dies.
Lastly, I coated the word JOY with Glossy Accents.






My tag was topped with some red ribbon, lace and jingle bells! 
This tag is going to look so cute on a gift package!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!

We really hope you will join us this month!
