Large Christmas Tag, 'Do Not Open Until Dec 25th', Envelopes Design

I was officially stumped choosing a design to make for Day 21 of 
This was one of those designs that go so far and then it was left for a few days whilst I pondered how to finish it.
Of course, it doesn't help when I'm making something way, way out of my comfort zone.

Take a look...

I do not like this tag at all, but I'm slowly learning that just because it's not my 'cup of tea' doesn't mean somebody else won't like it.
That's a hard lesson for me.

Here's the cute duo of tags I chose to base my tag design on.

I knew the colour scheme would stump me, but I worked with it anyway and hoped for the best!

Supplies Used:

Mama Elephant 'Tags A Lot'
Waltzing Mouse 'Envelope'  
Waltzing Mouse 'Mini Envelope'
Spellbinders 'Deckled Rectangles'
Impression Obsession 'Fir Trees'
Memory Box 'Snow Burst'
Sizzix/Holtz 'Tattered Pinecone'

Memento/Tsukineko  'Tuxedo Black'
Ranger Perfect Medium

Embossing Powder:
Stampendous 'Crystal'

Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen - Clear Overlay
Star Shaped Buttons - Red
Twine - Green

I hope that today has been kind to you...

  1. This is so adorable, Donna! I love the tree poking out of the envelope. What a creative take on the inspiration!
    Take care!

    1. LOL... This was a case of having to be creative, for sure!
      With no stocking die, no presents and no candy cane I had to think of something that would fit the bill somehow. The easy part was the base with the envelopes. The hard part? What to put in them!!!
      Thank you for spreading a little blog happiness my way during this event, Michele. Have a lovely week. x

  2. Fabulous idea using envelopes on your tag Donna.
