Merry Christmas tag

for this project I used a half round acrylic tag from Clear Scraps as my base. I covered the front with a transparency from Hambly Screen Prints which created that wonderful lace design but maintaining some of the clearness so you can see through the transparency and the acrylic.


I used my Cuttlebug machine (haven't used this baby in a long time) to make my layered flower accent from some Basic Grey paper. I finished the layering with an acrylic flower and a pearl.


here's another look at the tag.

thanks for stopping by and make sure you complete this round of blog hop by coming back to the Clear Scraps blog.

Till next time,
Grace
