SILENT NIGHT ~ Gift Tag #4

All Is Calm, All Is Bright

Silent Night, Christmas gift tag, front

I love the Christmas carol, 'Silent Night'. When we think about 'night' we don't usually associate it with being bright. But with a full moon, or an amazingly bright STAR lighting up the fields, it most certainly would be bright!

That thought was the inspiration for my Silent Night tag.

I designed this one with a particular gentleman in mind. I know he will love the handsome buck in the forefront of the scene.

As with the others in this series, this tag is BIG, measuring 4-1/2"w x 5-1/2"h.

The pic at left illustrates the large size, spanning my hand.


Silent Night Gift Tag, snowy evergreens


I cut the snowy hills freehand and sparkled them up with glitter. For the night sky, I used white gel pen to add snow. If you look closely, you'll see one bright (crystal) star in the "Silent Night" phrase.

Evergreen Trees:  

Trees are cut from white cardstock, then painted with ProMarkers. I wanted the trees to be heavy with snow. I love how they turned out. Trees are 2 sizes:  some are 1.78w x 1.37h. Others are 2.17w x 1.67h.

Silent Night Phrase:

I chose to design my own phrase rather than use one from a cartridge. Sometimes those are too flimsy and don't cut well. The phrase is cut from silver cardstock.

Cartridges Used

Library Fonts - "Silent Night" phrase
Winter Frolic - tag shape
Winter Woodland - trees
Winter Wonderland - the deer

As with the other large tags, I am making two of each design. Can't wait to see reactions from the recipients. Such fun!
