Corrugated Christmas Bird, Acetate, Embossing

My tag for Day 6 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags is a quick and simple acetate tag.

Here it is...




I love the impact you can achieve using acetate, but often these tags are labour intensive.  I wanted to see if I could achieve one that was super easy to make for a change!


I based my tag for this post on this Bird tag (below).  
If you look very closely at the white embossed tag underneath my bird you should hopefully notice some subtle blue sponged ink in places - a reflection of the different blue hues that you can see here.







Supplies Used:

Dies:
Mama Elephant 'Tags A Lot'
Paper Smooches 'Tag Stitched'
Sizzix 'Bird' - sorry, no other details available

Embossing Folder:
Darice 'Snowflake'

Ink:
Holtz/Distress 'Stormy Sky'

Other:
Metallic Corrugated Card





As ever, I have married up the back of my tag with dies glued in place the same as the front.
That's the price you pay for playing with acetate, I'm afraid!


With just a little bit of 'window dressing', this style tag is perfect for a kraft bag.
What do you think?




Hope you have/had a good day, today...
