Just Us Girls #372 - Word Week

It's Word Week over at Just Us Girls and Nancy chose an appropriate one for this time of year...Christmas Tree.
 
An easy one, but the tough thing was which Christmas tree do I use from my stamp and die collection?  THAT was a tough one!  I settled on this tree die from Paper Smooches.  I die cut it from white glitter paper.  I also wanted to make a tag to play along in the Tag You're It challenge.  I used a piece of Distress Specialty Stamping paper and sponged Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers on it.  Then I spritzed it with water.  I love how it looks like snow falling or even lights glimmering.  I stitched the parts of the tag together with twine and added the sentiment.  I tied it off with satin ribbon and more twine.
 
Here's the link to the Tag You're It challenge.
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team on the JUGs blog.

This is so cute and the perfect way to give a gift card! I love the blending of the colors on the background and the way you threaded the stitched edges.

What an adorable tag. I adore that tree die, so unique. And I'm with you, I love how distress ink responds to water splatter. Always a fun look, never the same thing twice.
