Day 2 of the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist features this beauty from Julie Ebersole. Julie was the first stamper I had a serious *design crush* on when first I discovered her clean classy designs on SCS ... and she still inspires me as much ... or more ... today.
I decided to incorporate a grey sky, buildings, stars, sequins and a floating sentiment ... as well as the cool 3-D window-box effect into my tag design.
I started by die cutting stars into my sky. Next I die cut the Savvy Cityscape twice from silver metallic cardstock and then cut them into four pieces, so I could layer them with foam tape for dimension. I die cut a Spellbinders Labels 20 opening into the top tag and began assembling, placing more silver cardstock behind the star openings before attaching my matching natural colored card back.
I finished with a silver jingle bell border and a die cut Merry Christmas sentiment that floats across the label opening. The final step was some sequin sparkle ... I will confess, I didn't really *get* sequins when they first started showing-up in designs ... now I want to include them everywhere ... especially in little groups.
