Day 7 - 12 Tags of Christmas

Loving the colors and textures of Day 7!  Again I had to improvise as I didn't have most of the ingredients for this one.  I'm really liking this one, as I love greens and browns.

I didn't have any kraft glassine so I used a buff colored Parchment Vellum from Marco Paper and used the Distress Inks.  Turned out better than I thought it would.  The vellum is very crinkly and stiff ...not sure what the glassine would be like as I've never tried it. The vellum worked pretty good for this though.

I don't have a holly leaves I freehand cut some holly looking leaves.

I inked a tag with Distress inks...well actually it took me 3 tags to get one just the way I wanted it.

Wonderful take on day 7 - the parchment worked wonderfully in place of the glassine!
