Tag You're It! Challenge #9

I came up with a very shimmery tag to enter into Tag Your It! Challenge this week. CAS can be shimmery, right?

The challenge is based on this great design by Leigh Penner.  I like how her word dies go ever so slightly off the tag.

I'll also put it in for Addicted to CAS where the code word is TAG. 


I used some shimmer navy cardstock as a base and die cut the word merry (Wplus9) from the bright, sparkly, striped paper (12 x 12 sheet that I got at a garage sale for 10 cents - score!). I cut another merry from plain white cardstock to fit in as a contrasting color.  The tag die that I used is PTI's tasting tag so it has 2 holes on the right side so you can tie a spoon to the tag.  I didn't want the holes to show so I attached 3 dots I hole punched from the pattern paper to cover them up. Christmas (Wplus9) was embossed with white.

I think you can't just make one tag when you die cut like this, so I made a second tag while I was at it and I used sequins instead of punched dots to cover the holes.  It's definitely not CAS!  I'm toying with the idea of adding a third merry, cut out of the blue shimmer, and gluing it over striped paper in the bottom.

Thanks so much for Looking!
