AWAY IN A MANGER - tag

Featuring the Christmas Carol

I love the imagery of the baby Jesus in the manger. After all, it's where Christmas first began!

The hardest part of this tag was designing the music used as a background in the oval. If you are not familiar with PhotoShop, you can still find the music online and just use a portion of it for your backdrop.

For mine, I worked with the entire music score, cleaned it up to remove guitar chords, change line spacing, and changed the print to brown.

I had to size it down, import it into Word which gave me 4 per page; enough to make a few more of this card.



I wanted to keep the colours rather muted looking and simple. The base tag colour is actually a loden green, not brown. Again, these tags are LARGE, sized at 6"h by 3-1/2"w. 

Details

Sizes:  Tag size 5-1/2"h, shadow 6"h
Ovals:  2.56w x 3.8h
Oval shadows: 2.71w x 4.02h
Manger & Baby Jesus: 2.1w x 2.79h

Cartridges Used

Elegant Edges - Tag 1 shape
Winter Frolic - Tag 2 shape, manger, star and Baby Jesus

These tags were so much fun to make. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them.
