“I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” Tag

Heard the Bells stand

Interesting to me that the very last tag I am making for this Christmas Season is the first idea that came into my mind when the holiday season began. One of my son’s favorite Christmas carols is “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.” About November, I started thinking what a pretty tag that would make. I had trouble finding a “bell” die. My latest Cricut cartridge, December 25, happened to have this image, so problem solved! I cut the bell from chipboard, as grunge board doesn’t do well on the Cricut.

Then when I saw the Cinnamon Dry Stickles, I knew that would help create bell I saw in my head! I used Martha Stewart Garnet glitter for the bow and Xmas Red Stickles for the holly berries. I used music paper from Tim’s Holiday Stash for the background, sprayed with Heirloom Gold Mist and stamped with some holly leaves in Brushed Corduroy (and heat embossed with clear EP).

Thus, the last tag for this season is all done and on the Tag Tree.
