Day 12 of Ellen's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist




I'm thrilled to be teaming up with the super awesome Lisa Adametz for the Ellen Hutson LLC - 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist.  We're featuring Reverse Confetti products!  Lisa gave me a sneak peek of her tag and oh my, you're not going to want to miss it!!!

Here's how I was inspired with the prompt 'Clear':


I'm not going to lie, I based my project on that fun Starbucks gift card!  I started with a panel using the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator confetti cuts.  I placed the card behind the panel and scored it just enough to give it a big of a pocket.  I secured the back with adhesive.

I eyeballed (very technical) the gift card and used the window from the Round Top Tag on the front of the gift card tag.  I backed it with a smidge of acetate to create my 'Clear' window.


That cute elf girl is from the Christmas Cheer set.  Isn't she adorable?  I tried to color similar to the girl on the gift card.  The sentiment is from the Snow Bunnies set.  The reinforcer is from the Hang Ups set.


A cute tag that could easily be hung on the tree for a bit of a treat for a coffee lover 💚  That's it for me, remember to go check out Lisa's post + Instagram for loads of inspiration!

This is so cute, Amy. I love the colors that you used and the scallop edge.

Adorable, Amy! At first, I thought you had colored the images on the inside of the tag--not just the little girl on the front. Never would have known it was a gift card if you hadn't said so! :) Love how you coordinated your image with the gift card, and created a gift card pocket tag. Tfs! :) ~ Andrea
