Believe Tag

I've joined an online swap on the UKScrappers forum, where you make a tag 8"x4" and receive one back in return. I thought I'd have a try at it last night, because I've never worked at that size before and wanted to get a feel for it!

I used my new Santa stamp again (I'm sure I'll get bored with it eventually, lol) and created most of the embellishments myself. I painted a black bookplate gold and then distressed it with sandpaper and the nutcracker soldier has an acrylic fragment on it for a bit of gloss. The 25 numbers were cut on the Cricut, and the Believe word was created in Inkscape and printed onto card.

There are a few things I'm not satisfied with here, so I won't be sending it in to the swap, but I thought I'd share it anyway! Click on the image for a larger view.
