Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag #12!!

Whoo hoo!!  I've finished all 12 of Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist!

Tag #12 was designed by Ellen Hutson herself.  It has 3 cute curvy Christmas trees made out of layered tissue paper and she thought it looked like something from Whooville from the Dr. Seuss.

Here's my rendition of her tag: I didn't have the supplies for the technique Ellen used on her tag base, so instead, I clear embossed the tag with Yonder Star Backgrounder by Waltzingmouse.  Then I sponged the whole tag with Victorian Velvet Ranger Distress Ink.
I didn't have the curvy tree die Ellen used so I used my Small Snow Covered Stacker Tree die.  I used 3 colors of tissue paper on each tree - alternating the colors with each die cut layer.  I adhered the layers over each other using foam tape.  I think my trees look like something out of Whooville too!  Very whimsicle with the mixed colors.
I made the tassles out of tissue paper using my Fringe Border Die from Memory Box.  I added this sentiment from Around Christmastime by WMS punching it with a 2" circle punch.
I also added this fun sentiment at the bottom along with a die cut arrow.
The arrow points to the back of the tag -  where the recipient will find....... a gift card tucked inside a little pocket!
Wouldn't this be a fun thing to find hanging on the tree Christmas morning!?!

Well -  this finishes the 12 Days of Christmas Tags -  It was so much fun seeing a new tag each day and then figuring out how to recreate it with the supplies I had in my craft room.   I'm so glad I did them this year -  and at the same time I'm glad I'm done!  Now to move on to other preparations for Christmas - like decorating, baking and wrapping presents!!
