Here are a few tags I recently created to send to a friend who lives north of the border. The tags were entirely my own ideas...usually I've at least perused Pinterest for a jumping off point.
Martha Stewart snowflake punch; Stickles; black machine stitching
By stamping on vellum and stitching it over the base tag, the dark background around the snowflakes is still quite visible but muted so the message stands out.
I first drew around each arrow with the Black Fude Ball Pen. Left the stencil in place and overlayed it with the arrows stencil and drew around it in turquoise. Removed that stencil and overlayed the arrow stencil with the Schoolhouse stencil and drew around it with the lime Sharpie. I'm a terrible doodler left to my own devices!
