I created a tag for my homemade granola, packaged in a clear A2 card box.  I used  Just for You and A Blessed Christmas stamp sets as well as Blessed Icons, Quote Tag, Flag Tags, new Ornaments dies and just a wee bit of new Stitched Frames dies.    


The bird, from A Blessed Christmas, was cut from X-Press It Blending Card using Blessed Icons, colored with Copic markers and raised on foam tape.   The sentiments were both stamped from Just for You.


 Be sure to check out the other Paper Smooches designer blogs (listed above) and comment for your chance to win!

Thanks for visiting!  🙂

Additional supplies/info:  Copic markers (BG10, BG11, BG13, W00, W1), burlap, MME enamel dots, clear A2 card box.  Finished tag size:  3″ x 4″.
