Twelve Tags of Christmas - Day 2

Welcome back to the Twelve Tags of Christmas. We are on Day Two, and using the same stamp set as yesterday, but creating a very different tag, more in keeping with classic Christmas Colours, but still with a bit of a twist, using Emerald Envy as the green element.

One of the real bonuses of using Stampin Up products is that all the colours are true across the whole product line. I think we all know that trying to match colours can be difficult, but Red must be the hardest to match, so using Cherry Cobbler as the base for today's tag could have been a bit of a challenge, but not for Stampin' Up! make it so easy. There is Cherry Cobbler in the Washi Tape and I used it to ink part of the stamp; they all match perfectly. The same is true of the Emerald Envy, which could have been a difficult colour to match as it is on the blue end of the green spectrum, but yet again, Stampin' Up! have done all the work for me. They make it easy for everyone to produce professional results.

I think this is particularly important for new crafters, many of whom start with Christmas Projects and can be put off continuing because it is hard to get things that match. But you will see just how easy it is with the right products from a company that wants everyone to have fun with professional results.

I hope you enjoy this project and look forward to seeing you for the remainder of the Twelve Tags of Christmas. You will find the measurements and list of products used below.
