Shake some Joy

 I saw the November challenge at Hero Arts {Stay Crafty with Hero Arts, #29} is Holiday Tags. I had just gotten the Snowflake Medallion so I was eager to use it.  I hope you like my Shake some Joy take on the challenge. 


I started by cutting out the snowflake medallion from this lovely dark blue shimmer paper {that is really difficult to see in the photos} and set it aside.  I used the Infinity Circle dies to cut out about 8 frames that I made by taping 2 of the circles together, glued those on top of each other.  I used the largest circle to cut out some acetate and the bottom.  I filled my tag with shaker mix Winter Lady from Picket Fence, glued the snowflake medallion onto the acetate, then that onto the little well I had made with the frame. Lastly, I used the word Joy from the Joy Stamp & Cut set and cut that out of silver glitter card.  I inserted some ribbon in between the layers so the tag could be put onto a gift and/or used as an ornament.  Oh and I used a gem from the Picket Fence gem mix Moon Shadow over the dot of the J in Joy. 

It really didn't take that long to make; the hardest part was doing all the figuring so everything would work together, I'm not the best at that sort of stuff. It's very sparkly and I'm very pleased with the final product. Thanks so much for stopping by! Christi
