12 Tags of Christmas #11

She started at number one. I blinked and good grief, here we are at number eleven already!
There's only one left but the fun keeps coming.
Here's Linda's texturaly scrumptious tag 11.
Like I said before. I love trying to duplicate Linda's style on a different medium other than a tag, but sometimes that offers up a challenge.  For example, this tag has a translucent appearance to it and trying to make fabric translucent is a task. SO, I decided I'd use one of them plastic folders you put paper reports in and use that as my star snowflake structure.
Above are the plastic stars and to the side are the products I used to achieve my duplication of textures.
Close up of the string of lights cut from the Cameo and double layered, colored and heavy powder embossed.  Happy Holidays sentiment comes from The Cutting Cafe.
The bag is very CAS with the continued theme of snowflakes.
I've since added a bow and leaf to the handle, but forgot to take a picture of it.
There you have it, number 11 and all inspired by The 12 Tags of Christmas and sponsored by Linda's store, The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
Hugs and happy crafting,
Lisa xx

Always impressive!!! LOVE your little stuffed star guy! Great texture!!! LOVE that tag too! Gorgeous projects!

A challenge indeed, but i don't think you can come much closer to getting the exact look of the tag, and you're creating something different. I love how this one turned out, very wintery in style, and adorable indeed.

Absolute perfection! I love that you used a plastic base to achieve a translucent feeling. And the string of ornaments has me grinning. Another sweet addition to your star ornament collection!
