Anything Goes Christmas or Winter Secret Garden Crafts style

Happy Wednesday friends! Today I am coming to you with a Christmas tag I've made for Secret Garden Crafts! I sort of went with a different shape of tag this time but as you will see in a minute, you can't really tell as I have decked that tag all out,lol.  I started out with a cereal box which I cut using the Grad Label 4 by Spellbinders twice and glued them together for stability and added card stock to the back and some gorgeous designer paper by Lemoncraft called Gossamer Blue. You will see that even this paper is not a Christmas paper you can definitely turn it into something Christmas. Have a look

Merry Christmas

Products Used:

Paper: card stock in light blue, Studio Light Winter Memories ephemera, DP Lemoncraft Gossamer Blue


lace in white, white tulle trim, silver and white Winter picks, glitter reindeer, rhinestone, wooden banner piece (Merry Christmas), blue glitter snowflakes, silver German glass glitter, diamond dust glitter, Spellbinders Grand Labels 4 cutting die, Prima fabric flower (purchased from Craftycity a while back)

Secret Garden Crafts Flowers Used:

Lily flowers in blue tones

Curly Roses - white

Bourbon Roses - blue

This is my tag for today's post. If you like any of the flowers I've used on this tag you can find them at Secret Garden Crafts. Archana is still offering
