I like a variety of tags: whimsical, traditional, and a few classy ones for those classy friends (you know the ones!). My first version of this tag was okay, but then the Muse stepped in and this happened:
It’s really pretty simple, but that’s how classy things are. Agreed?
- Stamps: Hello Friend, Merry Patterns (Host Exclusive/October & November)
- Color Palette: Real Red, Old Olive, Basic Black, Whisper White
- Accessories: Big Shot, Circles Framelits, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Real Red 1/8″ ribbon
I bought the Hello Friend stamp set for this wreath and it was worth every cent. Merry Patterns was a Host Exclusive stamp set offered this fall. It’s no longer available, but if you’re lucky enough to have it, get out your Paper Snips and invest in the fussy cutting on this one – you’ll be glad you did.
If you don’t have Merry Patterns, there is a Plan B. (Note: there is ALWAYS a Plan B) I cut a narrow strip of Crumb Cake cards stock and stamped a sentiment on it. It seemed a bit plain, so I indulged in a bit of doodling to dress it up. I added a ribbon/linen thread bow and some diahmohnds (that’s how the fancy girls say it) and I think it works!
But there is no doubt that I like the first one better.
